Is Dutch a replacement for a local vet hospital?Updated 8 months ago

No. While our vets can give you advice on how to make your pet’s life better, help you understand why they may be not feeling well, solve certain problems, and prescribe medications for certain conditions, they can’t perform physical examinations, blood tests, vaccinations, surgeries, or other hands-on procedures. We encourage you to continue your relationship with your current vet for all other purposes including yearly exams, shots, and urgent care. Our vets can help you determine if you need to go to a vet for urgent, non-life threatening issues, but if your pet is experiencing shortness of breath, collapse, seizures, bleeding, or other life-threatening conditions, go directly to the ER.
