The Kittel Family Just Got Bigger!
Our clients may have noticed that Dr. Dan hasn't been seeing patients himself 6 days a week anymore these past few months. Since the arrival of their new baby girl in April, both Dr. Dan and Charleen have been enjoying some extra time at home with their children, especially over these summer months when their older children have been on vacation from school. We have been lucky to have relief veterinarians, Dr. Plagman and Dr. B, filling in for Dr. Dan, seeing his patients in his absence. Of course, the rest of the Kittel Family staff remains here, working hard day to day to provide the best care for our patients, regardless of the doctor seeing them.
This year, we upgraded our client communication system to Vetstreet, an online Pet Portal that allows our clients to do so much more than just schedule appointments online. Clients get their own online pet portal they can use to view their pet's basic medical records and vaccine due dates, request prescription refills, order food, schedule appointments and communicate with our staff all from their own computer or cell phone! We have been utilizing Vetstreet to send out reminder postcards/emails, appointment confirmations, client newsletters, and special offers to our clients. Text messaging is now available to remind clients about your pet's health care needs and to confirm upcoming appointments. Be sure to log in to your online pet portal to choose your preferences for how our staff can best communicate with you about your pet's health & medical needs. Please call the office if you have any questions about or problems with Vetstreet. We hope this service allows you to keep better track of your pet's medical records.
