CVMA Definition of Consultation

“Consultation” means when a licensed veterinarian receives advice or assistance in person, telephonically, electronically, or by any other method of communication from a veterinarian licensed in this or any other state, or other person, whose expertise, in the opinion of the licensed veterinarian, would benefit a patient.  The California licensed veterinarian receiving consultation shall maintain the veterinarian-client-patient relationship.
