A Quality of Life consultation with HolisticalVets LLC can help provide some insight when facing challenging decisions about your pet’s well-being, especially in the face of chronic illness, age-related conditions, a decline in their happiness and overall health, and more.
By taking the time to listen to your goals and concerns regarding your pet, HolisticalVets LLC can help you navigate complex choices regarding general treatment options, potential interventions, or end-of-life decisions with clarity and compassion, as our focus is on providing you with the information you need to make the right decision for you and your pet.
While HolisticalVets LLC cannot prescribe medications or make changes to your pet’s existing medications (if applicable) or make diagnoses regarding your pet since he or she was not examined in person by HolisticalVets LLC, a virtual vet visit via our Quality of Life telehealth consultation offers a platform for:
- Evaluating your pet’s condition and addressing your concerns
- Engaging in conversation about your pet’s health issues, addressing inquiries related to their well-being, including potential pain, discomfort, and their overall quality of life
- Discussing treatment goals and pain management strategies for your pet
- Providing information on how to prepare for euthanasia when the time comes
The results can then help you understand your pet’s needs and determine the next best step for him or her, since you’ll gain insight and understanding regarding signs of pain your pet may be exhibiting, whether and how your pet can benefit from additional comfort and support, what to expect during the euthanasia process when the time comes, and more. If it is determined that your pet’s journey is nearing its end, if you opt, HolisticalVets LLC would be honored to spend time with your beloved pet and assist him or her over the Rainbow Bridge when it’s time.

Other Important Information
Code of Conduct
We follow the Golden Rule (“Treat others how you would like to be treated”) and apply that rule to our interactions with both people and animals. Due to this, we greatly appreciate being treated the same in return.
Therefore, it is our policy to not tolerate any signs of disrespect, rudeness, yelling, screaming, bullying, threats, profanity, name
calling, harassment, aggression, demanding or entitled behavior, disparagement, violence, exploitation, unreasonable or excessive demands, and physical, emotional, or verbal abuse, etc. Should any of those characteristics be displayed, we will immediately end the telehealth consultation and not provide further services but will apply the charge for the consultation on the credit card provided.
Rescheduling and Cancellations
Please understand that we reserve the right to discontinue/refuse service and/or cancel appointments at our discretion and at any time. If such a situation arises, we will promptly notify you through the email address you provided (or verbally if the telehealth consultation is already in session). This policy particularly applies when we feel that the standard of care for your pet cannot be met through telehealth. In those circumstances, we are unable to offer our Quality of Life telehealth consultation (your credit card will not be charged in this situation). Additionally, this policy extends to appointments that consist of behavior that go against our Code of Conduct.
If you need to reschedule or cancel a scheduled telehealth appointment, please send an email to email@example.com. Please note that cancellations or rescheduling requests made less than 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time will incur a $50 charge, which will be applied to the provided credit card. In cases of rescheduling, it’s important to be aware that this charge is separate from the appointment fee.
If looking to reschedule your telehealth appointment, please check our scheduler below for available days and times. In your email, please specify which available appointment slot you would like to reschedule your appointment to and once we receive your request, we’ll be sure to let you know (via email) if we can reschedule the appointment to your requested day/time. If we are able to accommodate your request, you will also receive a confirmation email detailing the new day/time.
We genuinely appreciate your understanding and cooperation regarding our policies. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can HolisticalVets’ veterinarian diagnose my pet and/or prescribe new medications for my pet or make changes to the medications my pet is currently taking? HolisticalVets LLC is committed to ensuring that your pet’s well-being is not compromised due to a lack of information. As telehealth consultations do not allow for in-person exams or diagnostics, potentially vital findings and information may go undiscovered. Therefore, any diagnoses and/or, if necessary, medication adjustments should be made by a veterinarian who has personally examined your pet.
If I have questions after my telehealth consultation concludes, can I email them to you? While HolisticalVets LLC is happy to answer a couple of uncomplicated questions that may arise outside of appointments without an additional charge, a second telehealth consultation may be recommended so that further questions can be answered in a focused setting. Alternatively, instead of a second telehealth consultation, if preferred, additional questions can be answered via email according to these rates instead. These rates are in place to account for questions that require substantial additional time and/or research in order to provide you with the appropriate medical advice and correct information.
