Avoiding Cat-astrophy: How to Engage Cat Owners in Life-Long Care

About this event

Have you noticed a decline in cat veterinary visits at your clinic? If so, you’re not alone. While dog owners may seem to have no problem bringing their pets in for their annual and semi-annual visits, sometimes it can feel like you need to coax your cat owners to pursue more consistent appointments and lifelong care. But in the long run, this may not be so surprising. Pet owners have different needs and concerns that vary from species to species. When you understand how a cat owner’s mind works, and what they value and look for when it comes to their precious pet’s care, then you have the chance of gaining a client for life. This session will help you better understand how to communicate with cat owners. You will learn how to help them feel more comfortable and taken care of at your practice. And you will help them better understand the needs and reasons behind more regular visits for their furry friend’s overall preventative care.
