Peotone Animal Hospital Unleashes New WebsiteGlobeNewswire
PEOTONE, Ill., July 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peotone veterinarians of the Peotone Animal Hospital announced that they have a new veterinary health website. The veterinarians say that the website provides easy, round-the-clock access to information pet owners can use to help their pets stay healthy. The website features a cache of articles about a wide range of pet health and wellness issues including how to avoid fleas, ticks and pet obesity, to spay and neuter dog surgery and dog dental care. The website also provides a secure Pet Portal, a Pet Selector feature, and several ways for families to interact with the pet hospital staff.
A veterinarianat the hospital said the new website provides several valuable services for pets and their owners. "The new website is actually an extension of our Peotone pet care services that people can access at home. Educational articles help people make informed decisions about their pets' health care, for example. The articles cover everything from vaccinations to diet and exercise, as well as fleas, ticks, cancer, diabetes, pet dental care and more. Pet owners can also check their pets' medical records from our website anytime."
The hospital staff went on to explain that the new website features several ways for pet owners to access information and interact with hospital staff. The Pet Portal provides secure access to veterinary records so pet owners can check their pets' vaccination and other health documents and send emails to the staff. People can also make appointments and download and fill out new patient forms from home via the website. According to the animal hospital, this allows the veterinarian and patients more time to get to know one another in the office instead of dealing with paperwork, all of which helps them provide more individualized care.
An additional feature is available for people interested in adopting a pet. The Pet Selector quiz asks people questions about their lifestyle so they can be matched with dog or cat breeds that will be well suited for their family. The Veterinary Topics also contains articles about how to choose a pet, how to find one from ethical sources, and how to prepare the home for a pet. The veterinarians say that all of these features help people make responsible choices that they can feel good about and will help new pets can enjoy a long, happy life.
According to the animal hospital, the website will continue to grow and add value for pet owners. "We've just started an interactive blog and will be adding a social media component too so that pet owners can communicate with us. We also have a listing on Yelp so that people can find us with their smart phones. It's an exciting time!"
