Congratulations Wash House Winner

Brodie Animal Hospital, Austin Texas

Checking in with owner Mike Werner, DVM…

How do you feel grooming/bathing will help your practice?

Aside from the additional revenue, a groomer can immediately find any dermal or ear issues that may need medical attention.

How often do you talk about grooming/bathing with your clients?

I get at least 1 to 2 questions per day; the groomers can answer those questions.

How often do you recommend grooming/bathing?

Depending on the breed, every 6 to 8 weeks, more often with select breeds with medical issues.

How did you find out about John Paul Pet?

I had heard of the pet products, but am more familiar with the Paul Mitchell products, having used them myself.

How do you feel about retail?

To accomplish a retail business in a clinic it must be taken out of the veterinarian’s hands and given to the manager. The veterinarian needs to let go of the control of this piece of the business.

What effect does AAHA have on your practice, and how long have you been a member?

The American Animal Hospital Association drives you to be the very best you can be and instills this into your team members; it’s an attitude. I was the head of the AAHA Student Association in 1977, and have worked with AAHA accredited clinics ever since.
