Industry update: New online search tool for pet owners released
Pet owners searching for the perfect veterinarian need look no further than the AVMA's new website: MyVeterinarian.com. The site provides pet owners with detailed information about veterinary practices across the country.
Pet owners head to MyVeterinarian.com type and type in their zip code—if they're looking for a veterinarian in a specific geographic area—and a list pops up with everything they need to know: The veterinary clinic's name, address, phone number, and business hours. The site even includes medical services provided, the species of animals served, and the names of the veterinarians on staff. Practices can choose to include a link to their website and a map to show the exact location of the clinic.
Pet owners can also search the site for specific health and pet-care related topics, such as what clinics might offer dermatologic or behavior services, or where boarding and training are available. A link on the site to the AVMA's Animal Health page provides access to valuable information related to general pet care, emergency and first aid resources, and many other pet-related topics. Access to all of the information on MyVeterinarian.com is free—click here to check it out.
