Teleconsultations for Veterinarians
Teleconsultations take place directly between Dr. Kelly Ballantyne and the primary care veterinarian attending the patient.
The consultation includes a 10 minute video or phone consultation between Dr. Ballantyne and the attending veterinarian, a 1-2 page written report of Dr. Ballantyne’s recommendations, and 2 weeks of email follow-up between the attending veterinarian and Dr. Ballantyne.
Please note that the primary care veterinarian is responsible for relaying recommendations to the client, prescription of medications, and follow-up care for the patient.

To set up a teleconsultation for one of your patients, we will need the following information from you, the primary care veterinarian:
The patient’s medical records
1-3 videos of your patient, including:
A tour of the home environment and the patient’s typical behavior at home (i.e. not engaged in the problem behavior)
One video of the problem behavior as long as this does not endanger your patient, other people or animals
If the patient is a cat whose primary issue is housesoiling, you will need to include pictures and/or videos of the litter boxes and their locations in the household
A completed veterinary teleconsultation history form
Once we receive the completed history form, medical records, and videos, we will send you a link to schedule and pay for your teleconsultation appointment with Dr. Ballantyne.
