For 2015 we would like to focus on Pet Wellness! What do we mean by this? By focusing on pet wellness we will be using our diagnostic skills to help PREVENT problems instead of trying to solve difficult medical situations when they occur.
Preventative care is vital! Click here to learn more about how preventative care can extend your pet's life and save you money in the long run.
In order to do this we need your help! We will be using a Pet Wellness Report to gather individual information about your pet. This information will highlight areas where things are going well, and help us identify areas where we can make improvements through a risk assessment.
A risk assessment sounds scary but really it is just a tool to help us improve our care of your pet. Studies have shown that when risks identified early that you have more options to treat by catching problems early and with early detection we are able to provide better care at a lower cost to you.
We are now implementing this assessment with every annual exam for every patient in the form of a Pet Wellness Report. When you call to set up your annual exam you will be given a website and a unique code that will allow you to generate this report at home. When you come in for your exam, bring your report. This information will be invaluable in helping you and the doctor improve the quality of your pet’s life for years to come!
