Our 8-week on-line Missing Animal Response course is ideal for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and most critical of all, the front office staff members at veterinary clinics.
Most pet owners will not only notify their own veterinarian when their pet is lost, but they will go down to that vet’s office (and other area vet clinics) to leave a flyer of their lost pet. In most cases, vet staff members simply take that flyer and pin it to their office cork board. But if instead that office staff were trained in the 8-week, online MAR course, they’d know how to educate and coach the pet owner in how and where to search for their pet. It would benefit veterinarians to have their office staff trained in Missing Animal Response because their assistance in helping to recover a missing pet will generate appreciation from the public, plus if their “client” is lost and then found, they will retain and not lose that client. In addition, veterinarians are ideal candidates to be a local community resource to rent out digital wildlife cameras and driveway alarms, tools that the public need to recover both missing cats and missing dogs. Veterinarians are an IDEAL source for renting these pieces of equipment out, along with offering lost pet consultations, since many animal shelters are not progressive enough to offer this service, they don’t have the funding to purchase the equipment, and they are typically not business minded as veterinarians are.
The bottom line is that just like offering nail clipping services to generate additional revenue, there is major space for veterinarians to meet the needs of dog and cat owners through offering lost pet recovery services through their practice!
