Partners for Healthy Pets Provides Veterinary Practices a Free, Proven Program to Bring Lapsed Patients Back

Partners for Healthy Pets

Free, Targeted Email Campaign that Connects Veterinary Practices with Patients They Have Not Seen in 14 Months or More

Yardley, PA (August 18, 2015) – With a mission of ensuring that pets receive the preventive healthcare they deserve through regular visits to the veterinarian, Partners for Healthy Pets (PHP) is providing veterinary practices with an opportunity to participate in a free program that offers proven success in bringing clients back who have not been in for over 14 months.  

PHP and a leading provider of integrated veterinary marketing solutions, Vetstreet, recently conducted a 90-day pilot of the free program with 400 veterinary practices nationwide. Through targeted emails, the initial program reconnected practices with over 16,800 past due patients; 80% of which had not been in for a checkup in over 16 months.

“The overwhelming success of the pilot program has affirmed the value of this initiative for veterinary practices and for PHP’s mission of ensuring pet wellness through regular preventive care,” explained Chair of PHP and CEO of the American Veterinary Medical Association  (AVMA), Dr. Ron DeHaven. “This program can lead to renewed veterinary and client relationships, ultimately benefitting the veterinarian, the pet owner and most importantly, the pet,” DeHaven continued.   

Veterinarians who choose to participate in this free program will have personalized email reminders sent, designed to encourage and motivate clients who have not visited their veterinarian in over 14 months to schedule a checkup. An optional $25 discount on services can be included in the email if clients make an appointment within a month of receiving the email promotion.

 “With many years of helping veterinarians communicate with pet owners, we were excited to be selected by PHP to implement this exciting initiative.  Bringing pets in for preventive healthcare checkups is in line with our commitment to educating pet owners about the best ways to keep their pets healthy and happy,” stated Vice President of Sales at Vetstreet, Jim Hansbauer

For a limited time, enrollment is open for the free program to help practices bring back their clients.  Veterinary practices that are interested in participating can do so by visiting or by contacting Vetstreet at 888.799.8387.
