PARANAQUE CITY, August 6 (PIA) — Residents of Taguig City can now consult veterinarians over the telephone for any pet health concern as the local government opens Vet Telemedicine. 

The City Government of Taguig has set-up free over-the-phone medical consultations in an effort to reduce the need for people to go outside of their homes and reduce the possibility of contracting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Vet Telemedicine is available from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Calls will be answered by pet healthcare professionals committed to provide quality service.

City residents can also call to consult through landline: 8697-1969 or mobile phone: 0977-690-3069. 

According to an “I Love Taguig” (Official Facebook Page of Taguig City Government) post, the Vet Telemedicine will “provide medical solutions to pet owners with unwell pets as it connects pet owners and veterinarians virtually.”  

The city government reminds the residents to value their health as well as the health of their pets. (PIA-NCR)
