In the November monthly practice newsletter, our focus is on the importance of yearly checkups for your patients. You’ll find Facebook posts, tweets and copy for your practice website or newsletter that highlight why yearly checkups are a necessary part of a pet’s care.

Recently, both feline and canine populations have experienced an increase in preventable diseases such as diabetes, periodontal and heartworm disease. In fact, the American Heartworm Society estimates that 45% of dogs in the U.S. are not protected against heartworm! Unfortunately, the truth is many of your clients may not see the value in preventive healthcare.

Use the social media and website content in the next section to educate your clients about the importance of yearly, comprehensive checkups. Your veterinary practice team members are the only ones who can obtain a detailed history, perform a thorough physical exam, and discuss the best ways to keep patients well.

Yearly Checkups

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 November’s Facebook posts, tweets and copy for your practice website that you can use “word for word”. They focus on the importance of yearly checkups and are designed to encourage your clients to schedule their pet’s annual exam with you.
