Here you’ll find ready-to-use Facebook posts, tweets and practice website/newsletter content, all created with you in mind! You can take the ready-to-use content and use it...word for word! Let us help you motivate your clients to schedule their pet’s yearly checkups.

Healthy Heart

You are the expert when it comes to keeping a patient’s heart healthy. During a patient’s physical exam, auscultation can catch murmurs or arrhythmias. You have the medical knowledge to diagnose not only cardiac disease, but also to successfully manage it for years with regular patient monitoring.

Which patients are due for their yearly checkup? Check your files then contact all of your clients you haven’t seen in over a year. You want to remind them to schedule their pet’s annual exam because a yearly checkup guarantees these pets are getting the highest quality of care.

Word for Word

Here are July’s Facebook posts, tweets and copy for your practice website that you can copy “word for word.” They’re designed to motivate your clients to schedule their pet’s yearly checkup with you.

Success Story
“Partners for Healthy Pets has a good way to get you started,” says Dr. Kayann Stables, veterinary consultant to two companion animal practices in southern California. “The website gives you lots of ideas,” she says. She uses information from the Partners for Healthy Pets website to generate weekly pet health tips published in a local magazine and to make into signs to help educate clients.

Dr. Stables also helps the practices with their social media presence. She has found that the Partners for Healthy Pets website is especially valuable for monthly Facebook posts that are centered around one topic. For example, Dr. Stables utilized the Partners for Healthy Pets dental preventive care content to promote dental month in February. The number of dental prophylaxes performed increased from 2014, and she thinks Facebook contributed to this upturn.

Dr. Stables has seen firsthand how important Facebook is to a practice. “It’s a good way to communicate, to increase awareness to new and existing clients. It’s your sign on your door,” she says.
