Animal Health Digital (AHD), an animal health marketing and technology company, today announced the launch of the DVMdiets Network created for veterinary professionals.
The network will provide nutritional education for veterinary practices along with an online home delivery platform for their clients, including more than 70 brands of specialty and prescription diets.
“Our research indicates that while nutrition is discussed on more than 80 percent of veterinary clinic visits, less than half of veterinarians feel that their staff is adequately trained on companion animal diets,” says Daryl Schraad, president of AHD. “The growing number of specialty diets has made it challenging for veterinarians to stay properly informed, let alone stock all of the products that their clients need. DVMdiets helps ensure the veterinarian remains the go-to source for nutritional information, while allowing them to earn revenue and increase diet compliance.”
The new network features weekly live and on-demand seminars for member practices, which are sponsored and conducted by diet manufacturers and companion animal nutrition experts. The programs are designed to educate the veterinary practice staff and will focus on emerging trends, standardized nutritional guidelines and new products and categories, according to AHD.
“Our online home delivery platform features specialty and prescription diets as well as client reminders, automatic shipping schedules and the lowest delivery cost in the market,” Schraad says. “Many clients will receive free home delivery and the most they would pay is $4.95.”
The DVMdiets Network is being offered for free benefit to members of the online veterinarian purchasing organization GroupDVM.
