veterinary newsBlog About Parasites

It's the #1 topic that interests pet owners

Parasites can be deadly, and pet owners want their veterinarians to keep them informed. A recent study from the Companion Animal Parasite Council found that 90% of pet owners want their veterinarians to tell them about parasites in their area, but many veterinarians are leaving them in the dark: only one in five veterinarians surveyed actively track parasite prevalence and positive cases. Some veterinarians indicated they don’t track parasite prevalence in their area because they “don’t feel it’s necessary.” Pet owners, however, think otherwise.

Build trust and loyalty

And pet owners don’t just want to know about parasite problems during wellness checkups: the survey found 66% of pet owners want to know about local parasite issues “immediately.” This is potentially great news for veterinary hospitals. Notifying clients of parasite problems in their area can build trust and loyalty – not to mention the fact that it will get pet owners on the phone to schedule an appointment when they otherwise would not. Informing pet owners of the perils of parasite problems - especially through a well-written blog entry or a professional crafted veterinary infographic - can help establish your reputation as a reliable source for the information pet owners need. That means more clients visiting your veterinary hospital in the future, and more growth for your business.
