‘Vets on Call’ YouTube Series Garners 550,000 Views

Posted: Dec. 6, 2012, 3:55 p.m. EST

The YouTube video series “Veterinarians on Call,” sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health, has recorded more than 550,000 views since its 2011 debut, the project’s production company reported today.

The latest episode in the 24-video series features Deanna Fuller, DVM, of Countryside Veterinary Clinic in Lowville, N.Y. In “Blood-feeding Fleas and Ticks a Risk to Pets and Humans,” Dr. Fuller and other Countryside veterinarians examine pets suffering from flea and tick infestations.

The lesson for viewers is that pet owners should work with their veterinarian to prevent infestations before they happen, according to the producer, Essex Television Group Inc. of Old Lyme, Conn.

 ‘Vets on Call’ Videos Attract Large Audience
Linda Randall, DVM, Dipl. ABVP, of Cloverleaf Animal Hospital in Westfield Center, Ohio, will appear in two videos in early 2013.
In another video, Fuller demonstrated how owners can look for potential health problems in their dog once a month. She also showed how to keep dogs at a healthy weight and brush their teeth.  

“These videos help the public see the important role vets play in ensuring the optimal health and wellness of pets and farm animals,” said Clint Lewis, president of U.S. operations for Madison, N.J.-based Pfizer Animal Health.

The company funds the series through its Commitment to Veterinarians program, which supports the veterinary industry through training and education, research and development, and philanthropy.

More than a dozen YouTube videos are in production.

Three videos posted this season featured veterinarians caring for horses. In “Small-town Pets Line up for Dr. Leone’s Traveling Animal Hospital,” mobile veterinarian Rick Leone, DVM, of Fowler, Colo., offered discounted spay/neuter surgeries and vaccines in a rural town.

The lesson: Eliminate unwanted pregnancies and reduce the number of stray pets that end up in shelters.
