Terms of Use

*Your use of Great Pet Health and its services, resources and content is subject to our Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions as follows:

Entertainment and information only – not veterinary care

Great Pet Health operates an online consulting service called Ask Great Pet Health (the “Service”) for educational and entertainment purposes only.  By using the Service, you expressly acknowledge and understand that there are risks and limitations associated with online consulting services.  Based upon the type of question that you submit Great Pet Health may ask a licensed veterinarian or other expert to provide you with an answer.

No matter the qualifications of the person(s) answering your question(s) or providing information, you expressly acknowledge that this Service is NOT a substitute for emergency veterinary care, and we cannot provide advice or consultation regarding immediate emergency attention.  If your pet is sick, injured, or in need of medical attention, you agree to contact your regular veterinarian or local emergency animal hospital immediately.

The contents of Ask Great Pet Health, such as text, graphics, images, and other material contained on the Ask Great Pet Health Site (“Content”) are for informational and entertainment purposes only. The Content is not intended to be a substitute for professional veterinary advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your veterinarian or other qualified provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Site.

No management of content – No [Vet – Patient / Client Relationship]

You expressly acknowledge that we are unable to directly manage the Service or edit, modify, screen, or otherwise review the Content posted by licensed veterinarians.  As a result, we do not have absolute control over the quality, safety, or legality of the answers that are provided through our services.  You also expressly acknowledge that in the case where a licensed veterinarian answers your questions a Veterinary-Client-Patient Relationship will NOT be established and that this service will not be able to diagnose, treat, or prescribe medicine for your pet.   By using the Service you understand that any licensed veterinarian that answers your questions is NOT your pet’s veterinarian and that the information they provide is NOT a substitute for in-person veterinary diagnostics and care.

No endorsement of products or services by Great Pet Health

The answers given are not endorsed by Great Pet Health and are the responses of the individual giving them.  If such answer includes an endorsement of a particular brand of product or service, such endorsement is given by the individual only and NOT Great Pet Health.
