What does it mean to be a true community animal hospital? Here at Leesville, we strive to do everything we can to be a helpful and giving part of our community, but what exactly does that mean?
What it Means to Be a True Community Animal Hospital
Many animal hospitals claim to care about their local community and yet their actions send out the opposite message.
Here at Leesville, we pride ourselves on being a member of such a great local community which is why we do everything we can to give back to and support our neighbors. What does this mean? How do we give back?
- We run awareness campaigns to ensure that our clients and local residents are aware of the need for preventative care.
- We also provide educational materials when there are local outbreaks that impact our animal community. The more information we can provide, the safer our neighborhood animals will be!
- We support local rescue organizations by running fundraisers throughout the year to support their rescue efforts.
- We take the time to help our clients understand the risks posed to their pets by common household items to ensure that their animals are safe at home.
- We encourage ongoing educational opportunities for every member of our staff to ensure that our local animal community receives the best care for their individual needs.
- We work with our clients to find the best treatment and care options for their pets based on their personal circumstances.
Why Isn’t Every Animal Hospital a Community Animal Hospital?
Unfortunately, like many human medical fields, not all professionals do what they do because of a love for animals.
For us here at Leesville, what drives us to give back to our community so much is because we know that by helping our neighbors to keep their pets safe and healthy, we are supporting the animals we love. Healthier animals mean happier people and that includes veterinarians too! We would much rather have fewer clients come through our door with preventable illnesses every year and rest easy knowing that our jobs make a difference!
