Tips on Client-Friendly Communication for Improving Pet Obesity Prevention and Management

by Jason Coe, DVM, PhD

Course Description: Research suggests gathering a comprehensive history, which includes understanding a client’s readiness to make change, is a fundamental first step in developing an effective weight-management plan with a client. By understanding our client’s perspective, including the obstacles they perceive exist in relation to managing their pet’s weight, we as veterinary professionals become better positioned to adjust and explain the value of our weight-management plan in a way that holds relevance for that individual client. Drawing on recent research, this session will explore several communication strategies to engage clients in developing a tailored weight management plan for their animal.
