Let’s Get The Word Out

Communcations materials you can use to help Clients understand the importance of preventive healthcare.

Pet Dental Month

February is Pet Dental Health Month – the perfect time to remind your clients about the real health benefits of regular dental care. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease before age three. The annual checkup is the perfect opportunity to talk about the importance of oral health with your clients – too often, clients see bad breath as a nuisance rather than as a sign of very real health problems.

How Dr. Deana McReynolds used the Feline-Friendly Practice Tools to reduce bites and scratches at her practice.

Broadway Veterinary Hospital, Seattle, WA

Dr. Deana McReynolds wanted to attract cat owners to her practice – so Broadway Veterinary Hospital (BVH) and Laser Surgery Center in Seattle, Washington became a cat friendly practice (CFP). “We were the first CFP-certified hospital in Seattle and one of the first in the nation,” she says. “Our staff is skilled in cat-friendly handling techniques and we provide a welcoming, low-stress environment for our feline patients.”

Cat owners have responded favorably to the BVH team’s expertise and empathetic manner with cats. “Clients get it,” Dr. McReynolds says. “We get a lot of positive feedback. Cat owners really appreciate the way we work with their animals and how different our approach is from what they’ve experienced in the past.”
