Our pets rely on us to take care of them when something’s wrong but our vets aren’t always available to answer. Skip typing symptoms into the search bar of “Dr. Google'' and go straight to the professionals by using MetLife Pet Insurance’s 24/7 telehealth concierge services. Customers who have a dog insurance or cat insurance policy can enjoy this service at no additional cost.
Using this feature is very simple. Chat with a vet through the live text service within our mobile app.1 Our licensed veterinary partners are available 24 hours a day and they’re ready to help answer pressing questions like:
- Q: My dog consumed something during our walk and started vomiting and doesn’t have an appetite. What should I do?
A: Offer small amounts of plant human food tonight and again for the next 3 days. Visit the vet if your dog continues to vomit or doesn’t want to eat.
- Q: Our senior dog has a hot spot from allergies. An allergen panel is pending, but what should we do in the meantime?
A: Consider a humidifier and wiping their paws when they come in from outside.
- Q: My dog ate a whole package of freeze-dried salmon dog treats. She’s 4 years old and 60 pounds. What should I do?
A: Have your dog seen by a vet if they vomit more than twice in a 24-hour timeframe or have diarrhea that lasts longer than 48 hours.
Our team of veterinarians can help with these questions and more. They’re eager to assist you and your pets, no matter what time of day it may be.
