How many times in a day do you see patients whose medical conditions could have been treated more successfully, or even avoided, if you’d been able to evaluate the pet or start treatment earlier? How many times do you encounter people who think that their pets only need to be seen by a veterinarian for illness or injury?
There’s a growing problem in the U.S., and pets are paying the price. Even with signs of economic recovery, people are tightening their purse strings to cut costs. Preventive care may be the first thing cut, since there doesn’t appear to be an urgent need.
How do you overcome this to make clients understand that preventive care is cheap compared to the cost of treating preventable conditions? You know that good preventive care will not only save clients money in the long run, but also prolong their pet’s life. But how can you communicate that to them?
Partners for Healthy Pets offers an online certificate program that can help improve your communication about preventive care, while also boosting your awareness and understanding of best-practice preventive care guidelines. Knowing how to provide preventive healthcare in conjunction with yearly visits is the focus of the Preventive Healthcare Certificate Program. Upon completion of this10-module program, you’ll be able to improve the overall quality of preventive healthcare you provide to your patients. Specific courses in the program range from preventive guideline implementation to social media tips and communication skills. We’ll focus on specific courses in future blog posts here during the remaining months of the year.
Whether you’re a veterinarian, practice manager, pre-vet or veterinary student, veterinary technician, or veterinary assistant, this certificate program provides the tools and resources you need to improve the level of preventive care in your practice.
