Once your pet is an established patient and has been seen in person within the last year Dr. Aja can offer remote consults. Remote consults are available for your convenience by email, text, phone and video chat (Skype, FaceTime, etc). You can simply email or text about any issues or questions and Dr. Aja will get back to you with a plan for your pet. Usually we don't even need to set up an in person appointment and you can get a response the same day to get started helping your pet. Phone and video chat consults are perfect for taking a look at any limping, discharge from the nose or eyes, or lumps or bumps on the skin, since we can discuss possible causes and options for next steps right away so you don’t to wait until Dr. Aja is available for an in person appointment.
Email and text consults are charged a flat fee. Phone and video chat consults are charged hourly at the same rate as in person appointments.
Sea to Sky Holistic Vet also offers a "VIP Access" program perfect for peace of mind. You simply pay set rate monthly and get unlimited consults free for that month. This is a great option for puppies and kittens where people often have a lot of questions and issues that come up between appointments and for hospice patients as we often have a lot to discuss and frequently there’s changes to our treatment plan between appointments.
Unfortunately Washington state laws only permit remote consults for patients that have been seen in person by Dr. Aja within the last year. Click here to Contact Sea to Sky Holistic Vet to set up an in person appointment if you haven't been seen by us in the last year. If you live outside the area that Dr. Aja travels to unfortunately a direct consult with you is not legal; however Dr. Aja can legally provide consults to your regular primary care veterinarian, so please request that they contact Sea to Sky Holistic Vet on your behalf to discuss holistic care options for your pet.
