Hampton Roads Veterinary Hospice & Integrative Medicine debuts telehealth services
Hampton Roads Veterinary Hospice & Integrative Medicine introduces virtual care options for pet families around the region.
By: Hampton Roads Vet Hospice & Integrative Medicine
For new patients and families, our doctors can provide a wealth of information about diagnostic and treatment options, disease trajectories, and routes of care. For existing patients of the practice, virtual services can be used to follow up with families, adjust medications or treatment plans, and work through new symptoms as they arise. The veterinarians at Hampton Roads Veterinary Hospice and Integrative Medicine focus on a holistic approach to comfort care and can discuss a variety of modalities, including acupuncture, physiotherapy, and herbal and nutraceutical options in addition to traditional medications. Appointments can be requested online by visiting http://hrvethospice.com or by calling 757-474-5968.
With this launch, Hampton Roads Veterinary Hospice and Integrative Medicine will also add monthly free pet loss support group meetings in the virtual space. These meetings, led by a grief counselor, will be held on the third Tuesday of the month at 6pm. These virtual meetings are in addition to the group's in-person meetings, which are held the first Tuesday of the month. The support group has been meeting monthly in Virginia Beach and Hampton since 2012. Full meeting schedules are available online at http://HRvethospice.com.
