Host a costume contest and bring in the veterinary clients

To get clients into our hospital, we host a pet costume contest at Halloween. To enter the contest, clients must bring pets into the clinic to have their picture taken. While in the hospital, receptionists can check whether the pet is up to date on vaccinations and flea and heartworm preventive. Then we offer a prize for the best costume at the end of a given time period.
