Pacific Northwest Veterinary Conference October 7-8 2016 Spokane, WA Debbie Boone, BS, CCS, CVPM & Wendy Hauser, DVM 4 hour Healthy Pet Plan Workshop PLUS Debbie and Wendy will be speaking on additional topics.
"The Veterinarian's Guide to Healthy Pet Plans: How to Design, Implement and Measure Your Way to Preventive Care Plan Success" was designed to “be a tool—a workbook—to give practices a platform on which to build their own personalized plans,” and that is exactly what it is. A modest book of only 90 pages, this spiral-bound manual outlines the reasons for and benefits of offering veterinary clients healthy pet plans and then provides a step-by-step process for the implementation of those plans into practice. The goal for each of the 10 chapters is clearly stated. The authors then describe how to achieve each goal by means of detailed questions, explanations, equations, and worksheets. Summary questions at the end of each chapter allow readers to personalize the objectives outlined in the chapter to their own unique practice situations. At the end of the book are 5 appendices that contain fill-in-the-blank worksheets, examples of marketing tools, and training modules to help veterinarians and practice managers implement healthy pet plans.
Although the price might appear to be a little steep for a soft-cover, spiral-bound manual, it is readily apparent that the authors have spent a large amount of thought and time in the preparation of this book. The wealth of information and detailed instructions contained in this book will be invaluable for any practice that is interested in developing personalized healthy pet plans, a process that may seem daunting to many veterinarians and practice managers. In my opinion, readers who diligently follow the steps outlined in this book, work through all of the worksheets, and honestly answer all of the questions will be able to successfully develop and implement personalized healthy pet plans in almost any veterinary practice.

"Still stuck trying to figure out how to put together a monthly pet wellness plan for your veterinary practice? I just read a really useful book by Debbie Boone(CVPM) and Dr. Wendy Hauser on it. Crazy as it seems, my favorite part was the Appendix! There are great sample forms, scripts and formulas there that show how to do things.
