Handouts for Clients
Why reinvent the wheel when it comes to client education handouts? Veterinary Partner, part of the VIN Family, has many great resources . Need to explain ear mites that the veterinarian diagnosed on a new kitten visit? Print or send the client to Ear Mites FAQ. There are resources for cats, dogs, reptiles, birds, and more in Veterinary Partner. Some of the resources are useful to the team too. What documentation does an owner need for air travel? What about international travel? The Air Travel with Your Pets handout has links that are useful for the veterinary team too.

Explore and get to know Veterinary Partner! It is a trusted resource that you can use for client education, or send those clients that love to Dr. Google conditions that their pets are diagnosed with!
