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 bloodwork?

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.

Word for Word

Here are January’s Facebook posts, tweets and copy for your practice website that you can use “word for word.” They focus on the importance of preventive healthcare to keep a pet’s kidneys and urinary tract in optimum shape!

When veterinary practices take advantage of the opportunities social media has to offer, it can improve the quality of care for patients. The American Animal Hospital in Randolph, NJ is a veterinary hospital that is maximizing their social media presence and reaping the rewards for patients, clients and staff, thanks to Partners for Healthy Pets.

“All of the Partners for Healthy Pets content is very user friendly for me--the Facebook posts, the tweets, the website copy. I copy and paste every Monday at 9 a.m.,” says Mary Confer, Reception Manager of American Animal Hospital in Randolph, NJ. Ms. Confer uses the Partners for Healthy Pets Monthly Practice Newsletter and the PHP Facebook page, Pet Wellness Pulse, for their practice’s Facebook page, Twitter account and monthly newsletter that is emailed to clients. When asked why she utilizes PHP resources, she says they save her time and the content “helps keep the pets healthy.”
