When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give TeleVet Inc. a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, and communicate such content. The rights that you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and most importantly improving our Services, and to develop new ones.

The Service and its original content (excluding Content provided by users), features and functionality are and will remain the exclusive property of TeleVet, Inc. and its licensors. Copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and foreign countries protect the Service.

Links To Other Web Sites
Our Service may contain links to third party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by TeleVet, Inc.
TeleVet, Inc. has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. We do not warrant the offerings of any of these entities/individuals or their websites.
A. Telehealth is the delivery of health care services using interactive audio and video technology, where the patient and the veterinary professional are not in the same physical location.
B. The Telehealth Services you receive from your veterinarian are not intended to replace a veterinary client patient relationship or be your permanent medical home. As with any online health service, there are potential risks associated with use. When using this service, you understand the additional risks of telehealth and waive any liability to Company or Veterinarian. These risks include but may not be limited to: In rare cases, information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate health care decision making by the Veterinarian; Delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of the electronic equipment or clinic staffing; lack of access to all of your health records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; an incomplete or inaccurate diagnosis of pet.
If your pet is experiencing an emergency, you should visit an emergency room or call your primary veterinary clinic immediately. It is not recommended to use our Service when your pet is having an emergency.
D. You may also be able to send written notes to your veterinarian or to Customer Support using a secure messaging portal within the Site (the “Messaging Portal”). Messages you send over the Messaging Portal may be viewed by more than one veterinarian or Customer Support agent and will typically be answered within 48 hours. You should not rely on the Messaging Portal if you need immediate attention from a Treating Provider or other health care professional. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, you should contact the nearest emergency clinic. You understand and agree that messaging with veterinarians over the Messaging Portal does not give rise to a provider-patient relationship, and does not by itself constitute treatment, diagnosis, or medical advice.
Thanks for choosing Otto, operated by TeleVet Inc! We are excited to provide you with exceptional service.
