As technology becomes a greater part of our daily practice lives, online consultation is now something to which veterinarians need to pay attention. We engage on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (none of  which I have enough time for), and of course respond to e-mails, and we need to be aware of the guidelines surrounding this type of  communication with our clients. In this vein are the new types of consults offered online, which are seemingly widespread in the human medical field and bear some  evaluation as to differences and similarities with veterinary practice.
