The VCA App:
Did you recently adopt a new puppy or kitten and wanted important information but did not know where to go? Maybe your adult dog is not feeling well, and you want to figure out why? With VCA’s 24/7 live chat, you can chat with a veterinary professional. You can find more information about the VCA app here.
With VCA’s app, pet parents can access their pet’s information online. Accessing tailored information on the phone helps pet owners stay up to date about their pet’s health. The helpful information includes pet and breed-specific content, training tips, real-time reminders, and notifications. VCA’s app also allows pet owners to access their loved pet’s medical history, book appointments, set reminders, or communicate with a veterinarian.
Did you know about VCA’s CareClub?
CareClub is a wellness plan to help your pet live a healthy life. Many pet owners, especially new pet parents, are sometimes unclear about how to care for their new dog or cat. You may have a question about their vaccinations, nutrition, physical activity, or unusual behavior. With CareClub, pet parents can select wellness plans for their pets who may be at different life stages. For example, a wellness plan for a puppy will provide important information about their exams, vaccines, early disease detection & diagnostic testing, or their spaying or neutering. Your pet’s doctor at VCA will recommend the best plan for your loved pet’s health and safety.
VCA has adapted their visitation protocols to ensure safety not just for their staff members but for pets and their parents. COVID-19 protocols ensure the safest experience possible by adopting the strict use of masks, hand sanitization, limiting clients in hospitals, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning, and health screening measures. For those pet parents who are unable to take their pets to the VCA hospital, they can opt for virtual care or live chat through the app.
Pet owners can also book contactless appointments and contactless pick up of prescriptions means you can order medicines over the phone and either pick them up or have them delivered to your door. Many senior pet owners can not make regular trips for their pet’s food.
