Hill’s Pet Nutrition has announced the launch of its ‘K.I.S.S 4 Vets’ initiative which aims to help and support vet healthcare teams (VHCTs) ease back into the ‘new normal’, during “Covid-19 and beyond”.
K.I.S.S (Knowledge, Information, Support and Sharing) is a newly created team of nutritional experts developed by Hill’s to bring the vet community together to make “vets lives easier as they welcome more patients back to clinic”.
The four team-centric areas of K.I.S.S have been designed to help clinics “harness their full potential” across all areas of nutrition and wellbeing and will offer: In-Practice Training, The Hill’s Nutritional Ambassador Programme, On-Demand Education and Hill’s Webinars.
A variety of tailored training sessions will also help give clinicians the knowledge and tools to broach nutrition, often found to be one of the toughest topics to approach with pet parents, old or new.
Michael Unsworth, vet affairs manager, UK and Republic of Ireland, at Hill’s said: “Vets and their teams face multiple challenges on the pet nutrition front, whether it be the plethora of ‘self-appointed experts’ out there, trying to encourage loyalty from their clients, or the long-lasting effects of Covid, all of which are yet to play out over the long haul.
“The K.I.S.S. initiative will provide clinics access to a dedicated team of passionate nutritional experts, ensuring vets have the right support and knowledge base – and one less thing to worry about as they strive to improve pets’ lives on a daily basis.”
