How is it possible that we launched the Internal Medicine For Pet Parents website one year ago? Where did the time go?
This last year has been full of learning and growth for us.
We've worked hard to create weekly articles on our blog and to get the diseases section set up.
Our amazing guest authors included:
Our most popular article this year was about pet food and the link to heart disease. It's a subject many people are still talking about and we wanted to make sure we shared information from a nutrition specialist.
We launched the Internal Medicine For Pet Parents Series with the Pet Health Journals. Pet owners have raved about them and we even had one pet parent purchase 25 of the One Month Pet Health Journals for their veterinary clinic to hand out to other pet owners. How awesome is that??
The Pet Health Journal: A 6 Month Journal For Medications, Exams, & Healthy Living was officially published this week!
We're so excited to share this work book with you and hope you get a chance to see it in person. If you live near Ashley or Yvonne, you've probably seen the proof copies because we've been carrying them around everywhere with us the last few weeks!!!
If you'd like a journal of your very own, visit Amazon and grab a copy today! We'll be setting up with additional online retailers in the next week or so, so keep a look out for the Pet Health Journal at your favorite retailer.
We are also making the Pet Health Journal available for wholesale to veterinary clinics and hospitals, so if you think your veterinarian might want to carry it have them send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get them set up.
We want to give a big thank you to everyone who helped get the Pet Health Journal finished.
We hope this journal helps pets and their families live a happier, healthier life together.
We're so excited to start 2019 with big plans for the year. Thank you for joining us since we launched in August. We hope the information we're providing is helping you and your family live happier, healthier lives.
What we accomplished in 2018
2018 was a learning year for IMFPP. We launched the website in August and since then have been working hard at creating weekly blog posts as well as creating the disease pages.
Our weekly blog post has been a place of pride for us. We're working hard to ensure it is released every Thursday morning and has the highest quality information. We've had some amazing contributing authors and plan to keep bringing you the best we can.
Currently the pages that have the most information are the urinary, endocrine, liver, hematology, and immunology. These pages are not 100% complete, but most of the basics are there. As we continue to grow, these pages will continue to be fleshed out.
We're excited to have grown our newsletter list to over 100 subscribers! Everyone on our list got a copy of our Weekly Treatment Tracker and we've heard great feedback on it. Thank you so much to everyone that's joined us so far. If you'd like to join here's the link: Subscribe Now!
In the background we've been working on the nitty-gritty details to set up our business for the growth we have planned in the future.
Plans for 2019
This article will focus on the people you'd meet at a basic visit to your primary veterinarian. I'll cover specialists in a different post, click here to read that article.
Let's start at the beginning:
You've arrived at your veterinary office with your pet and you're both greeted by a front staff member who checks you in. The next stop is in an exam room where a staff member takes a history related to why your pet is at the vet and obtains vitals including weight, temperature, heart rate, and respiration rate. The veterinarian will do a physical exam and speak to you about what the plan is for the visit.
A veterinary technician will do the tasks recommended by the veterinarian and return your pet to you. If medications are prescribed by the veterinarian, the vet tech fills the prescription and discussed the medications with you. If you have questions, the vet tech can help get you answers. Check out the article about good things to bring with you to every appointment by clicking the link here.
Then, it's time to leave and either the veterinarian or technician escorts you to the receptionist. The receptionist will process the payment for your visit and help schedule any follow up visits.
