Telemedicine: the Main Point of Contact Now and Moving Forward

As our current pandemic worsens, individuals all over the nation are being told to self-isolate. State governments are issuing curfews or stay-at-home orders to ensure the safety of their citizens as COVID-19 has proven to be a fast spreading virus, and a deadly one at that. COVID-19 attacks the respiratory system, causing damage to the lungs at an unbelievably fast rate. Because of the threat COVID-19 has proven to be, industries all over the globe have had to adopt new regulations to slow the rate of contagion, specifically healthcare.

How to Keep Your Pets Healthy

Pets are beloved members of the family, requiring lots of attention and care. But what’s the best strategy with keeping pets healthy, especially with high costs just for examinations? Unlike with children, there’s no real usable insurance to keep costs down. Major pet insurance companies require minimum payments of forty dollars a month, offering coverage for select types of services that only occur later in life and setting limitations based on pet breed or existing health. Navigating the mass amounts of options to find the best care for your pet, especially with outbreaks or other external factors in your area, may be a cause for concern. For first-time pet owners particularly, knowing what normal behavior for your new pet versus concerning signs can be an overly-stressful experience. So, how can you keep your pets healthy?
