Danger Chocolate Resources To Share With Veterinary Clients Over Easter

Easter is a great time to connect with and educate your veterinary clients...

Over the years I've collected some great resources to share on social media that will help you connect, educate and inform your clients.

Safety First!

You may be surprised at how many of your clients are still not aware of the dangers of chocolate to their pets. There is going to be lots of chocolate around over the next few days and let’s face it, for many the chocolate fiesta has already started!

I've shared a number of the posts below on the Vetanswers Facebook Page and they've been incredibly popular. It could be a good idea to schedule these a couple of days apart and during different times over the next week or so to try and get the message seen by as many of your followers as possible.
