How HTP can benefit your business & why collaborative care is so important for your team and the success of your clients!

I absolutely love working with other pet professionals to make this industry a better place!

 

As a CVT with 10 years+ experience in different areas of the pet industry, I have quite a diverse background in experience:

 

  • Boarding kennel & hobby farm

  • Veterinary clinics

  • Local animal shelter

  • Retail (Farm & Pet)

  • No-Kill Animal Sanctuary

  • Animal welfare & cruelty investigations

  • Presentations

 

It's no question that pet owners are struggling. And we all want to help. Care to join me on a mission?!

 

We as professionals must bridge the gap from prospective pet owner, to lifelong pet owner. Too often, pet owners are not given the education and resources they need to be successful.

 

Most people would love to turn to their veterinary team and other pet industry professionals for answers, however:

For the majority of this profession, staff are short, hours are less than usual, and burnout in this industry is all too real.

 

Consequently: families suffer, owners are confused and overwhelmed, dog bites happen, animals are neglected, pets are re-surrendered, and so-forth.

 

I'm dedicated to helping, and empowering pet owners (as well as pet professionals, like YOU!) to make better decisions in order to improve the health and well-being of dogs, cats, and their families.

 

Interested in adding another member to your organization's care team?

I'm here to offer support in any way that I can. Whether you're an established pet professional. a human care provider, child educator, or an up-and-coming entrepreneur... We can develop a way to work together and make this industry a better place for all! Here are some of the professionals I work with:

  • Ever wished there was a better solution to on-going anal gland problems and hot spots?

  • Are you looking to build your referral network?

  • Have you been looking to ensure pet adoptions from your facility are more successful and that they remain in their furr-ever homes?!
