Second Medical Opinion for Dogs
This ‘digital first’ behaviour is extending into all parts of our lives. Telemedicine is the need of the hour and why should dogs be left behind?
VOSD has been providing FREE remote veterinary healthcare services by increasing our digital footprint since 2013 with the first mobile app for rescues, thousands of second medical opinion sent via emails to pet parents and rescuers, telephonic guidance for first aid and rescues etc.
VOSD has always been innovating to expand our outreach and help as many stray and pet dogs as possible.
- We created the world’s first mobile app for stray dog rescue.
- World’s first custom CRM for rescue and treatments that tracks dogs, vehicles, and personnel through all stages from pickup > admittance > diagnostics > individual treatment > discharge/release. This custom CRM also cross-referenced and tagged GPS locations, time, and individual procedure data to create detailed reports. It also provided near real-time updates of each treatment to the dog’s reporter via app, SMS and email. This entire system was made available to any NGO that wanted to use it free of cost.
- VOSD created India’s first blood bank for rescued stray and pet dogs.
- World’s first remote medical assistance service for dogs — includes reading diagnostics remotely and recommending a specific treatment.

As a first in India, VOSD has introduced the concept of “Digital First” veterinary services for dogs. In today’s pandemic situation it is highly recommended to limit our exposure and stay indoors as much as possible. However, in the case of a medical emergency, our hands are tied and we have to seek help. To help dog parents who are going through trying times, we’ve introduced a telemedicine for dogs service which allows you to seek online treatment for dogs from qualified veterinarians.
You can now seek online veterinary help without any physical contact. You can consult them for all kinds of veterinary advice through phone, skype or the tool of your choice. Simply discuss the symptoms your pet is facing and get a diagnosis online. If you need emergency vet advice for dogs, please send us an email.
How does online pet advice help you?
You can obtain online veterinary help/advice for dogs and provide them the best medical care immediately by seeking online vet help in emergency situations where travel is not possible.
Most dogs often flinch at the idea of visiting a vet clinic as they don’t enjoy the experience. If your dog is one of them, telemedicine can easily provide you with online vet help for minor ailments. However, if your pet suffers from some major health issues, visiting the clinic in person is recommended.
Rather than using google to decide on what’s right for your pet, it is always better to ask a professional vet online for free. The vet will also be able to guide you on your pet’s nutrition, exercise and vaccination schedule if you are a new pet parent.
