Veterinary punch card

We have many clients who bring their pets in regularly for either a nail trim or an anal gland expression, so we made a punch card for these services. Pet owners can buy five nail trims or anal gland expressions and get the sixth one free with the card. Since we charge $15 for a nail trim and $25 for an anal gland expression appointment, the owners save some money with the freebie and appreciate us for the perk.
