Put the dvm360 iPad app to work for you! Use the content available on the Client Education tab to help you and your team walk through important preventive care topics with your clients, right there in the exam room.

So on top of monthly app issues, the dvm360 toolkits, the monthly print publications from your favorite magazines—dvm360, Veterinary Economics, Veterinary Medicine and Firstline (check them out under the Publications tab)—you now have your very own communication tool in your dvm360 app library. Some of the topics include:

Bite prevention 101, a little bit of education can go a long way when preventing dog bites. Help pet owners learn to recognize the signs their dogs are uncomfortable, things to keep in mind when pets and children interact, how to greet a puppy and more.

Otitis 101, which includes a step-by-step guide to cleaning a dog's ears, what pet owners can do for their dogs' itchy, sore ears, and three burning questions about ear and skin disorders.
