CVMA Policy on Veterinary Telehealth

The CVMA supports Veterinary Telehealth* as a beneficial modality when used for the best interest of the patient and client.  Veterinarians utilizing Veterinary Telehealth must maintain a veterinarian-client-patient-relationship (VCPR).  A VCPR cannot be established solely by telephonic or other electronic means.

* Veterinary Telehealth means the use of electronic communications and information technologies, including synchronous interactions and asynchronous storage and forward transfers, to facilitate veterinary healthcare at a distance.
