INDIANAPOLIS – The chief executive officer of Indianapolis-based Pet Wellness Clinics says the COVID-19 pandemic will change how veterinary services are offered in the future. Dr. Mike Graves says the company has seen a sharp increase in the use of telemedicine services as fewer people are leaving their homes but still seeking care for their pets. Pet Wellness is also moving forward with plans to open two new clinics over the next few months.
In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Graves said he expects changes to take place for both animal and human medical care.
“I think there’s going to be a paradigm shift in general, not just with us (but) I think with everybody,” said Graves. “Telemedicine’s been around for much longer on the human side but that’s even increased dramatically during this whole episode. It’ll slow up a little bit when people actually start getting out more, but I think it’s going to be a continual part of the practices and probably increase over time.”
