Don’t Fret Pet

Posted: 18 September 2018 at 11:35 am

Lintbells has launched a new initiative for practices that will support efforts to keep pets calm both in the practice and at home. The YuCALM ‘Don’t Fret Pet’ campaign started in July, practices will be able to benefit from practice support materials including posters, display materials and an educational guide to help clients recognise when they need support.

There is some evidence to suggest that the stress of visiting a vet – felt by the client and the pet – is a major barrier to clients seeking treatment, which can result in sick pets being presented for treatment much later. By creating a more positive, lower stress experience, there is the opportunity to improve not just the relationship with the pet and its owner, but also pet health too.
