A number of factors are leading to fewer veterinarian visits, putting the health of our nation’s pets at increasing risk. The newly published AAHA-AVMA Canine and Feline Preventive Healthcare Guidelines provide a unique opportunity to educate and encourage pet owners to take essential steps toward helping to ensure the health and well-being of their pets. Now you can learn about the guidelines and successful strategies to easily and effectively leverage the AAHA-AVMA Guidelines for the optimal health of pets.

  • Implement the Preventive Healthcare Guidelines in your practice
  • Educate clients about preventive healthcare for their pets
  • Make feline preventive care visits less stressful for cats and their owners
