Vet Consultation Terms of Use


Please note that Bondi Vet acts as a service to introduce Customers to a Vet for the purposes of a limited consultation over a telehealth platform. Some conditions and circumstances will not be appropriate for telehealth consultations. The consultation will not be equivalent to a normal veterinarian appointment, the Vets are not able to conduct physical examinations, test or checks in the same way as when you attend in person and the Vets are not able to prescribe medications. THE BONDI VET TELEVET APPOINTMENTS ARE NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS. IF YOUR PET REQUIRES IMMEDIATE, URGENT OR EMERGENCY TREATMENT, CALL YOUR NEAREST VET HOSPITAL.

1. Bondi Vet Global Pty Ltd (ACN 648 039 794) (Bondi Vet, us, we, our) operates a service that allows vet practitioners (Vets) to advertise online consultations to a person (Customer, you, your) via our platform at www.bondivet.com (Site) or any other platform we may introduce in the future (together, the Platform). We display the available times for consultations, allowing Customers to book a consultation with a Vet. The consultation will be conducted through a third party telehealth platform.

2. Your access to and use of the Platform and the data it contains is conditional on your acceptance and compliance with the terms, conditions, notices and disclaimers contained on this page and elsewhere on the Platform (Terms of Use).

3. By using the Platform or the services, features or functionality offered through the Platform (Services) you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use.

4. We may amend or update these Terms of Use. The revised Terms of Use will be notified on the Platform and if you do not agree with the amendments you may discontinue using the Platform.

SCOPE OF BONDI VET SERVICE

5. Bondi Vet is not a veterinary practice and the Vets are not our employees, representatives or agents.

6. The purchase of a consultation is completed when you place a request for a telehealth appointment with a Vet (Order), and the Vet accepts your Order, forming a separate contract between the Vet and the Customer (Customer Agreement). At this point you will be sent a confirmation (Confirmation). You will then be allowed access to the telehealth platform at the chosen time for the purposes of conducting the consultation.

7. If no “Bondi Vet” featured veterinarians are available, you may be offered appointment times through a third party service “VetCheck 24/7”. You will then be transferred to the site of that provider and Bondi Vet has no further involvement in facilitating the provision of that service.

8. We do not guarantee that the Vet assigned to take a telehealth consultation will be available at the selected time but if they become unavailable, you will be notified as soon as possible and we will try to accommodate your preference of Vet. You will be offered a refund if you do not agree to the alternative time or alternative Vet. You may request to cancel or change an appointment time but may be charged a fee.

9. To the extent permitted by law, Bondi Vet accepts no liability for any aspect of the Customer and Vet interaction, including the nature of the advice offered by the Vet, but we will use our best endeavours to escalate any complaints or concerns you have as to the Services provided.
