Clinic Innovation Guide

Products and Services to Enhance Your Veterinary Business

There has been plenty of talk about pandemic pets, the new normal and COVID-19 protocol. And while the pandemic brought on added contact restrictions, a wave of new clients and added stress from external sources that permeate the clinic, the truth is that these challenges are not new for veterinary professionals. Months down the line, similar stressors will remain in many clinics and hospitals around the world; and in most cases the practice manager sees or feels the impact of any issue at some level.

But there is a silver lining. Veterinary medicine has seen rapid advances in leveraging technology in order to improve outcomes for patients. Now more than ever we are seeing processes become more efficient, communication improve and treatment options advance — even as clients raise expectations. Forward-thinking solutions continue to roll out each day, but now a new problem exists for practitioners and managers: How do you keep up?

We developed the second annual edition of the Clinic Innovation Guide with the hope of being a part of the solution. This issue was designed to offer quick, practical takeaways that can aid readers in improving their work life, clients’ satisfaction and bottom line. The product catalog was developed in order to connect industry with practitioners in a way that highlights the information you need to know.

And this year we introduced a new section titled “Vision Statements.” This series of essays was developed so thought leaders in the industry can explain the heart of their organization. It is our hope that these essays give professionals like you a better understanding of the companies you partner with every day. While this guide may just be a small part of the solution, we hope it offers value so you can take something away and feel better equipped to tackle the challenges of the day.
