Free webinar—Paying for veterinary care: New ways to solve a pervasive problem
A free CE webinar presented by Vetsymposium and sponsored by VitusVet.
In virtually every recent pet owner survey, cost is cited as a major roadblock to seeking veterinary care. It may seem an unpleasant task, but when a client can’t pay, you need to know what to say. If you’re a veterinary team member who talks with clients about payment options for treatment and services, then this webinar is for you.
VitusVet founder Dr. Mark Olcott covers the latest AVMA and VHMA data on the rising cost of pet care and what your clients expect to pay. In addition to outlining the ins and outs of existing payment solutions, he will introduce some newer tools that are gaining popularity.
Plus, attendees will learn:
- Generational differences in pet care spending
- Generational preferences for payment options and experiences
- Adoption trends for pet insurance and wellness plans
- How existing payment tools in the veterinary industry differ
- Examples of practices that are addressing affordability and boosting revenue
