Healthcare Guidelines

Let us help YOU see more pets!

In the January monthly practice newsletter, our focus is on kidney and urinary tract health. You’ll find Facebook posts, tweets and copy for your practice website or newsletter that encourage pet owners to start the new year off right by taking better care of themselves and their pets!

How many of your clients know that 75% of their pet’s kidney function must be lost before there is a substantial increase in their blood work?

How many of your clients understand that kidney (renal) failure is not the same as the inability to make urine? Most pets with renal failure make large volumes of urine to try to remove the waste products that are building up in their blood. This apparent contradiction between the large volume of urine produced and loss of kidney function is often confusing and misleading for pet owners.

Use the social media and website content in the next section to educate your clients about the benefit of preventive healthcare when it comes to kidney and urinary tract health.

Kidney and Urinary Tract

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.

Campaign In Action: A New Year’s Gift For Your Veterinary Practice

The New Year kicks off with a better bargain than a post-holiday sale — a ready-to-go toolkit that provides an easy way to implement forward booking into veterinary practices nationwide.

Veterinary Medical Association Executives (VMAE) has collaborated with us on a forward booking program that can have a significant impact on the health of patients and practices. Forward booking simply means scheduling all patients’ next appointments before they leave the practice, regardless of the reason for their current visit. This includes medical progress exams and preventive healthcare exams.
Forward Booking
You and your veterinary healthcare team can access a free, straightforward, step-by-step program to start forward booking in your practice. We provide you with a suite of resources to train your entire practice team to develop the skills necessary to be successful. We also offer materials to actively promote forward booking in your practice with “Don’t forget to Book My Appointment” buttons and professionally designed downloadable posters.
