MSD Animal Health (known as Merck Animal Health in the United States and Canada), has set up an online registration facility for its VetsDeliver parasite protection delivery service, direct from the vet to pet owner. VetsDeliver, a subscription-based parasite home delivery service, provides a monthly revenue for the practice, delivers direct to the clients’ homes and protects their pets from parasites. In response to the current COVID-19 situation and in support of social distancing guidelines, online registration allows clients to simply sign up from home, ensuring pets are protected from parasites.
Amanda Melvin, Marketing Manager for Companion Animals at MSD Animal Health comments: “We are all in unchartered territory and we appreciate the pressure veterinary teams are under to continue to care for their clients and local pet community. Many businesses are having to add new services to support online facilities and home delivery, and for vets there is also now a need to reduce footfall into practice while still generating income. Making sure effective parasite control is available will help improve compliance as temperatures rise and the risks to the health of our pets increase. It’s one less thing for you and your clients to worry about.”
VetsDeliver delivers parasite prescriptions direct from the vet to the pet owner’s home. Designed to allow veterinary practices to save clients’ time and improve compliance, VetsDeliver provides BRAVECTO’s 12 week flea and tick treatment with the wormer of the vet’s choice. The veterinary practice can now simply register the client for the service online or during the patient’s appointment via a portal provided by Easy Direct Debit (EDD). The first BRAVECTO and wormers are sent direct to the pet owner, with their normal post through their letterbox. Veterinary practices can register their interest on MSD Animal Health’s website.
Amanda comments: “Online registration for VetsDeliver allows practices to build on the trust pet owners already have with their veterinary practices at a time when they are under significant pressure. Practices can provide a convenient delivery service to their door at a time avoiding the need for the client to visit unnecessarily. It’s easy for vets to sign-up clients and by offering BRAVECTO we reduce the number of deliveries and packaging required compared to monthly treatments.”
MSD Animal Health is also supporting veterinary practices by giving them access to a wide range of free preventative health information online via the MSD Hub.
