Lintbells says Mobility Matters at London Vet Show



Lintbells is offering veterinary practices the opportunity to benefit from a Mobility Matters support pack that will provide the resources needed to set up nurse-led mobility clinics. The pack will be available from October for existing stockists, with an opportunity for all at London Vet Show to sign up for a pack while stocks last. Lintbells can be found on stand U50 at London Vet Show.

An estimated 15 per cent of canine cases presented at first opinion practices are musculoskeletal and cats are also commonly affected.* In many cases a multimodal approach delivers the best results for mobility cases

The Mobility Matters support materials will help practices communicate the issues to clients, both in the waiting area and consulting room and online. There are also resources to help behind the scenes with setting up the clinics, including a comprehensive guide.

Gemma Cunningham is Lintbells Product Marketing Executive and says mobility clinics can deliver real benefits for practices, “We’re keen to bring attention to nurse-led clinics, which are not just great for patients but great for business too. Measurable outcomes include client satisfaction, incremental sales and improved patient comfort or quality of life. We’ve taken into account existing barriers based on what veterinary teams have told us and created the pack to address those needs. Our Mobility Matters referral cards, which help vets signpost clients to the clinics are a brilliant example of how the pack can help teams work more effectively together.”

As well as being able to sign up for the packs, delegates at London Vet Show will be able to take part in a stand competition and find out what’s new. Lintbells can be found on Stand U50, or contact Lintbells on 01462 790886.
