Hartz launches HUGProfessional.com to assist vets in educating pet parents about flea and tick prevention
January 26, 2012
Veterinarians deal with flea infestations every day and it can be a sensitive subject to discuss with dog owners. Whether it's a question of home cleanliness, discipline in using preventative products or treating the surrounding environment, there are countless factors that go into parasite prevention. Hartz, one of the leading manufacturers of flea and tick products, has launched a website called HugProfessional.com, which will allow veterinarians to explore the wide range of items that are available to today's pet parents and can find the perfect solution to meet a patient's budget, age, life style and many other factors.
HUGProfessional.com is yet another example of Hartz's dedication to the pet care industry and the hard workers that strive to improve animal wellness. In addition to the new website's expansive resources, Hartz makes an effort all around the country to improve the standard of care of veterinarians. The company is a sponsor of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and a regular contributor at key pet conferences and conventions around the country.
One of the most important aspects of a veterinarian's role in treating parasites is breaking through the cloud of misinformation that pet parents receive from the internet and elsewhere. According to a recent study by the American Animal Hospital Association, pet owners trust the word of a veterinarian over other sources, so it's vital that vets understand the many natural and holistic trends out there so they can weigh them against more effective, traditional treatments.
Most importantly, having HUGProfessional.com at a vet's fingertips will allow him to design a treatment plan that's catered to the unique needs of the pet. By having product use guidelines, safety procedures and a variety of educational tools at a veterinarian's disposal, parasite prevention can be presented in a clear and helpful manner to convince the pet owner to get on the right path.
HUGProfessional.com is just one of the many examples of Hartz's dedication to pets, their owners and the pet care industry as a whole. Hopefully, veterinarians will begin to use this valuable resource to encourage their patients to adopt new standards of flea and tick prevention and improve overall animal wellness.
