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.

It’s Not About Politics….It’s About Your Profession. The CVMA PAC is a bipartisan political action committee whose purpose is to educate state legislators and candidates on issues of importance to the veterinary profession.
