In the fast-paced world of veterinary practice, effective communication with clients is vital. In the past, some veterinary practices were hesitant about adopting Two-Way Messaging, fearing potential challenges with managing client expectations, needs, and wants. However, with recent advancements and customization options, Two-Way Messaging has become a powerful tool that fosters a personal connection between veterinary practices and their clients in order to deliver fast, pertinent information about patients and ensuring pet owners prioritize their pets’ health. With PetDesk, this feature has proven to be a game-changer for partner practices, providing convenience, accessibility, and improved efficiency.

Connect with Your Veterinary Clients in a More Personal Way 

Two-Way Messaging allows veterinary practices and their clients to engage in real-time conversations through text messages. This direct and personal channel of communication has proven to be one of the most engaging ways to interact with clients. In fact, 33% of pet owners are now Millennials, more than any other generations, with an astounding 75% of them thinking text messages are helpful for reminders, payments, surveys and promotions and would rather text than talk on the phone. The ability to send and receive pictures as well as maintain complete message histories further enrich the client experience, making it easier to share updates about their pets and receive important information from the clinic.

Streamlined Uses and Key Benefits for Veterinary Clinics

The applications of Two-Way Messaging in clinics has been diverse, but the following are the most frequent uses and have been highly impactful:

  • Medication Refill Notifications: Clients receive timely alerts when their pet’s medication refill is ready, enhancing convenience and compliance.
  • Routine Lab Results Updates: Clients are informed promptly when their pet’s routine lab results come back normal, reassuring them about their pet’s health.
  • Personalized Pet Updates: Sending updates and pictures of pets directly from the clinic creates a heartwarming connection with clients.
  • Appointment Management: Acknowledging and rescheduling appointment cancellations is made easy through quick text exchanges.

Time and Cost Savings for Veterinary Clinics

Imagine replacing phone calls with text messages for routine information sharing. Two-Way Messaging offers a time-saving solution that boosts the efficiency of your front desk operations. With clients expressing a strong preference for texting businesses, embracing this communication trend can reduce call volume and enhance overall client satisfaction.

Key Functionality and Client-Centric Features of Two-Way Messaging

To address the concern of client texts during off-hours or emergencies, clinics can set their own close hours, enabling automatic responses during those times. This feature ensures clients receive acknowledgment even when the clinic is closed, providing reassurance and improved communication.

To streamline routine conversations, customizable message templates are available, allowing your front desk staff to respond efficiently to common inquiries. Whether it’s sharing test results or other routine information, templates make communication a breeze.

PetDesk’s commitment to user convenience is evident in the option to use the clinic’s existing phone number for text messaging. This seamless transition enhances client experience and fosters a stronger bond between the clinic and its clients.
