Full Answer

Online veterinarian services provide a convenient option to receive basic information about a pet’s medical condition. The owner simply has an online chat conversation with a qualified veterinarian to diagnose the pet's ailment. There are many conditions that cannot be properly diagnosed until the animal is seen and examined. Should medication or a surgical procedure be necessary, the vet has to examine the animal before medication can be dispensed and a procedure performed. As of 2014, examples of online vet services are PetMD, VetLive and WebDVM.
