0 Comments

If you have not yet purchased some kind of pet health insurance for your dog or cat, knowing the types of illnesses and injuries that are covered can be a large incentive to buy insurance for you pet before your pet becomes sick or hurt.

Most of the pet insurance companies I’ve researched consider pre-existing conditions to mean: any illness, sickness or condition which first occurred, or displayed signs and symptoms before the date your dog’s insurance policy becomes effective, or any illness or injury that happened before your policy comes into effect. For example, if your dog was diagnosed with diabetes before your pet insurance policy started, the diabetes is considered a pre-existing condition, and will not be covered under …

The digestive track is a complex system which combines biological and chemical reactions; it plays an important role in your overall health. When your digestive track is out of balance, your body does not absorb the nutrients efficiently which may result in nutritional deficiencies.

Some of the symptoms of an imbalanced digestive track are listed below:

Why Health Care Practices Should Consider Outsourcing Their Newsletter Marketing Programs

0 Comments

In an ideal world, health care practices would have the time, expertise and resources to create their own newsletter marketing programs. Unfortunately, the reality is quite often the opposite.
The reputation of your health care practice is as important as the health of your patients. And just as you wouldn’t advise your patients to compromise their health by self-medicating, I wouldn’t advise you to compromise your reputation by skimping on the quality of your newsletter. The same way that you would advise your patients to see an expert (you!) about whatever is bothering them, I would advise you to work with an expert on newsletter marketing as well.
Outsourcing your medical, dental or physical therapy newsletter benefits you and your practice in the following ways:
It saves time. Creating a professional newsletter takes time-something that you, as a health care practitioner, don’t have in abundance. On top of that, patients …
