A: The call is free within Canada. For other international locations, you may call her or arrangements can be made for a Skype visit.
A. Email consultations are discouraged because it is difficult to have a conversation about your horse. Additionally, they usually take more time, making them more expensive.
A: Dr. Getty will ask that you keep a credit or debit card on file since the amount of charge will be based on the amount of time she devotes to your horse's plan. She will always discuss the final charge with you before actually charging your card.
A: Yes. Most consultations last between one and 1 1/2 hours. The amount of time spent on the phone varies with the complexity of the situation.
A: Of course! This is your time and you direct the conversation to meet your needs.
A: No, Dr. Getty does not issue prescriptions. If your concern requires medical attention, she will recommend that you contact your veterinarian.
A: Dr. Getty asks that you email in advance a list of everything you are feeding, including supplements and medications. If you can provide the website links to these products, she can look them over before calling you. Also, if you have any recent blood work test results or hay analyses, please email those to her ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A: Email access for brief follow-up questions are generally answered at no additional charge. However, charges will be incurred for time to go over blood tests or hay analysis reports. Also, if the scope of your email is broad, requiring additional time to re-evaluate your circumstances, you will be asked to make an appointment for a brief follow-up visit. In some cases, it can be done via email and your credit card on record will be charged for the additional time. The same hourly rate applies and will be pro-rated based on actual time used.
A: Yes. However, sometimes the plan may be adjusted if blood work or hay analysis results are done after the visit.
