Let us help YOU see more pets!

In the June monthly practice newsletter, as always, you'll find ready-to-use Facebook posts, tweets and copy for your practice website or newsletter. You can take them "word for word" and use them to educate your clients about the importance of yearly checkups for their pets.

Facebook users: In addition to these monthly topic posts, you can also join our Facebook page, Pet Wellness Pulse, for daily posts on a variety of topics.

This month, let's talk to clients about the importance of good nutrition in preventive pet healthcare.

Pet Nutrition

Many clients are overwhelmed and confused when it comes to choosing an appropriate food for their pet. They may get opinions from breeders, the internet, TV and superstore employees. But research repeatedly shows that clients value your opinion about their pet's nutrition the most.

Pet owners want to do what's right when it comes to preventive healthcare. And nutrition is no exception. Does the food they feed meet all of their pet's nutritional needs? It's time to check in with your clients and find out.

It's time to connect with all of your clients (especially those inactive clients you haven't seen in 13-18 months) to promote preventive care. All patients can benefit from a discussion with their owners about nutrition as part of their yearly checkup.

Use the "Word for Word" section below for Facebook posts, tweets and website/newsletter copy about nutrition. Encourage clients to schedule their pet's yearly checkup so you can discuss the importance of good nutrition for their pet's overall health.

When asked to describe the Partners for Healthy Pets website, Dr. Katie Roberts of Lone Mountain Veterinary Hospital says, "it's a goldmine for us." Dr. Roberts has been an associate veterinarian for over five years at the Carson City, NV practice and says preventive healthcare has been a priority for years. "For the past two years, our hearts have been in [developing] a wellness plan," says Roberts, "and I want to pioneer it."

Dr. Roberts thought the Partners for Healthy Pets website was a good way to get the process started. As she says, "it was so great to find." She has reviewed the team training videos and has plans for monthly staff training. Together, with practice owner Margie Quirk, LVT, they have their sights set on aligning the staff and clients on the importance of preventive healthcare. "We're always trying to educate clients. The more they know, the better the clients they are," says Dr. Roberts, "we believe so strongly about preventive medicine." Why put in so much effort? "It's better to catch things earlier because it improves the pet's quality of life and life span."
