So how does Virtual Veterinary Dermatologists (VVD) work?
Virtual Vet Derms has been set up with the help of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons ViVet scheme and brings you support and assistance in a new way. Our concept is in line with the RCVS Guide to Professional Conduct. Register with us today to get access to Diplomat Veterinary Dermatology Specialists who can work alongside you in a cost-effective way to help you manage those tricky cases. Our service offers a range of options which includes answers to “Quick Questions”, more detailed written advice via our Report Forms, telemedicine consultations for your client in your practice, or a referral visit for your client and their pet to visit the specialist at their own referral centre. In all, complete dermatology support for you and your practice.
ONLINE ADVICE FORMS
To get help and advice on a case from one of our Veterinary Dermatology experts just fill out the veterinary advice request form in the veterinary section and attach photos (in focus if you can and please include a close up of the affected area) of the animal’s skin or ear problem. You can also attach lab results or other relevant history. One of our experts will then get a written report back to you within 48 hours to give you a rational list of differential diagnoses, pertinent diagnostic tests, treatment options and long term management plans.
We can offer you complete advice for all your dermatology cases through our RCVS and European Specialists in Veterinary Dermatology and our Consultants in Internal Medicine, Exotic Medicine and Oncology. Their collective expertise covers a wide range of small and large animals including exotic and zoo species. Register with us here to set up your account. Then when you next have a problem, you can just log in to your account and click on the service you need. For practices wishing to talk to our Specialists on a more regular basis, we offer a Subscription Plan to reduce the cost per written report. For prices, click on the Pricing section on the Menu.

In addition to our online advice service, we can also arrange, via the internet with one of our dermatologists, a remote teleconsultation with your client while they are in your practice. Although the Specialist obviously won’t be able to examine the animal directly they will be able to visualise the skin, talk to your client and provide specific advice. After each teleconsultation our specialist will produce a report for you on the type of skin or ear problem that they suspect, together with the further investigations and therapy they think should be undertaken. We are happy to quote you for a teleconsultation if you feel this would be useful.

Face to face dermatology consultation
Alternatively if you feel your client and their pet would benefit from a face-to-face consultation with one of our specialist dermatologists, we can advise which of our specialists is closest to you so you can refer your client to see them personally.
( NB : Our Specialists will only see clients and their pets face-to-face if they have been referred specifically by you as their primary care veterinarian. We are happy to give you a list of our Specialists individual charges for face-to-face referrals, which will vary between clinics. Please contact us.)
