What their clients say
VetCT pride themselves on making a real difference to the veterinary teams and the practices that they work with. This is just one example of the feedback they get. Dr. Devon Bornhutter (Hey Bud Vets, Queensland, Australia), had this to say about VetCT Teleconsulting:
I’m loving the teleconsulting service! I find the software easy to use and easy to get support if I need help submitting a case, the advice has been both thorough and timely. I have found clients respond well to the ease of access to specialist guidance on cases. I also like that there’s such a wide range of specialist services so if there’s something I’d like specialist guidance on I know vet CT will have me covered. I like that I can often choose between a report and phone call and I actually overall really like the hours of operation as usually I have time to gather the case during the morning and submit the case in the early afternoon.
I’m a die hard fan of your service and your team! You guys have made a significant positive impact to our clinic launch and I look forward to continuing with vet CT as we grow!
