MY HEALTHY VET CAN OFFER MORE!

I think MyHealthyVet should offer links to our prep instructions for a variety of procedures - things like colonoscopy, IR procedures and I am sure many others that require some preplanning. If the vet was able to access this on the internet they would not need to come into the facility to get the instruction. This should be a pretty simple task and it could reduce the parking issues, man hours spent getting the instructions, the wasted paper+ cost of printing hundreds of these flyers. It would also make it available for the vets to be able to refer back to the instructions as they are performing these tasks which may reduce the number of canceled appointments due to inadequate preparation and patients being seen as noncompliant. Having it available on the internet may also help some be willing to view it if they can do it in the privacy of their own homes.
