Lintbells has launched its new and improved Mobility Matters initiative to vet practices. It provides a framework for introducing nurse–led mobility clinics, offering training and useful resources to practices to assist in the multi-modal management of dogs with stiff joints. This year it has also been extended to include cats.
The Lintbells Mobility Matters initiative provides materials that help improve communication and client understanding of their pet’s condition. There is a helpful guide on how to set up a mobility focused nurse-led clinic, as well as a step by step guide in a flip chart format that will help RVNs recommend dietary supplements or modifications, including weight reduction if appropriate and ways to modify exercise, as well as explain how to introduce environmental modifications.
To help launch the clinic, Lintbells Veterinary Business Development Executives can provide lunch and learn sessions. Practices can also become approved Mobility Matters practices with certified CPD for the whole team to ensure that the process of recommendation and referral to the clinic occurs seamlessly and involves everyone in the practice.
YuMOVE Brand Manager Gemma Cunningham says the feedback about the pack is that it helps vets and vet nurses explain mobility problems to owners in a simple but structured way to improve buy-in to a multimodal approach.
Practices that want to register an interest in the initiative can contact their local Lintbells Veterinary Business Development Executive or for further information visit www.lintbellsvet.com.
