Press release: TeleTails
TeleTails, a leading telehealth software platform in the veterinary industry, announced a partnership with Fear Free, a transformative educational program providing veterinary professionals, pet professionals, animal welfare communities, and pet owners with the knowledge and tools to look after both a pet’s physical and emotional well-being.
Both TeleTails and Fear Free believe that digital connectivity, implemented in conjunction with in-person care, will continue to be a driving force behind the ever-evolving veterinary landscape. By providing veterinarians within the Fear Free network with preferred access to TeleTails, members will be able to use digital care as another way to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in pets and those who care for them.
“As the relationship between pets and people is increasingly seen as a family bond, we need to find strategies to correspondingly deepen the client-veterinary team bond,” said Fear Free founder Dr. Marty Becker. “By combining flexibility, responsiveness, and convenience with telemedicine and curbside capabilities, TeleTails hits the sweet spot that benefits pets, people, and the profession.“
Dr. Hilary Jones, Chief Medical Officer of TeleTails, further explains that “fellow veterinarians are rethinking their approach to pet examinations to help reduce pet fear and anxiety surrounding office visits. Since pets feel most comfortable in their homes, virtual visits help eradicate the trauma of going to an office unless absolutely necessary.”
The free trial offering for Fear Free members includes access to TeleTails’ robust telemedicine platform through a free trial, exclusive commercial discounts, education, and ongoing support. TeleTails is a veterinarian-founded telemedicine platform that allows veterinarians and behaviorists to connect with pet owners when and where they need help the most. The company’s innovative software provides care teams with tools to offer live video consultations, flexible messaging, cross-team communication, and payment capabilities to securely and easily connect with pet owners digitally.
Founded by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, and developed by hundreds of experts in behavior, medicine, and handling, Fear Free offers online and in-person education to veterinary professionals, the pet professional community, animal shelter staff and volunteers, and pet owners. Fear Free provides both professionals and pet lovers alike with the knowledge and tools to look after a pet’s physical and emotional well-being.
