Pets Best Insurance Invites Facebook Friends to “Ask a Vet” Their Pet Health Questions
Posted on May 18, 2011 under Industry News
Pets Best Insurance welcomes pet owners to ask its resident vet any pet health questions they have– regardless of whether their pets are insured by the company.
BOISE, ID, May 18, 2011 — Pets Best Insurance believes that knowledge is power–especially when it comes to our pets’ health care. While the pet insurance company always recommends taking a pet in for veterinary evaluation at the first sign of illness, it has also created a means for pet owners to ask a licensed veterinarian general pet health and behavioral questions on its Facebook page.
Dr. Fiona Caldwell, of Idaho Veterinary Hospital in Nampa, Idaho responds to the questions on film each week. The clips are then posted to the Pets Best Insurance Facebook wall, http://www.facebook.com/PetsBestInsurance and the Pets Best Insurance website.
When prompted by the Pets Best Insurance Facebook moderator, “friends” are welcomed to post their questions directly on the company’s Facebook wall. They can then expect their questions to be answered by the vet weekly.
“Sometimes pets do things that seem bizarre to us that are completely normal for them,” President and Founder of Pets Best Insurance, Dr. Jack Stephens said. “There’s reassurance in hearing that something your pet is doing is nothing to worry about.”
If Dr. Caldwell feels she needs more information about any specific question she receives, she will suggest the owner “talk with their veterinarian.” After all, nothing replaces a good physical exam and periodic diagnostic screening of your pet for good health and early detection of disease.
