Tips for patient videos

Use landscape mode for your videos

Videos are extremely helpful, especially in veterinary neurology. We highly encourage you to submit your and your clients’ videos with your consultation requests. You can upload up to 125 MB. If you have more than 125 MB, contact us and we can set up a dropbox. Here are a few tips:

  1. Use landscape mode
  2. Make sure feet are in the frame
  3. If possible, get a few seconds of the gait in slow motion (here are links to: SloPro in the App Store and Google Play, free but requires $3.99 purchase for email function)
  4. Have pet walk on surface with good footing, not a slippery floor
  5. Video pet walking, not running, toward, away, and across from you
  6. Kneel down to pet’s level
  7. Turn on the lights! It’s hard to see a black dog in a dark room.
  8. Keep the video less than 2 minutes
