Telemedicine Awareness Week, Sponsored by Butterfly Network
Telemedicine offers new ways for horse owners to connect with their animals’ veterinarians and seek advice. |

The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care and Butterfly Network have partnered for Telemedicine Awareness Week, Jan. 9-15, 2022, to help horse owners and veterinarians better understand this ever-more-popular part of the veterinarian-client-patient relationship (VCPR).

New technology has made communicating and connecting with your equine veterinarian easier than ever. Have you captured a video of your injured horse and texted it to your vet? Have you as a veterinarian responded to your client with a treatment plan or instructions to get that horse into the clinic ASAP? Then you’ve already participated in telemedicine at a basic level.

Look for more information about telemedicine and VCPR all week on, our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and in our e-newsletters.
