Strongsville Veterinarians Use Social Media to Promote Pet Wellness Care

STRONGSVILLE, OH--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2011) - The team of veterinarians at Crossroads Animal Hospital in Strongsville, Ohio is using the latest in social media networking opportunities to interact with pet owners and provide information on pet wellness care. The practice now communicates through Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ in addition to their regular newsletter and blog posts. Pet owners and pet lovers alike are urged to use the information provided to become better informed on helping their pets live long and active lives, or to send questions and comments directly to the veterinarians. The veterinary hospital believes that better informed pet owners have healthier pets.

Crossroads Animal Hospital primarily uses its Facebook page to inform, educate, and entertain pet owners. The pet hospital's social media outlet is building a strong audience as pet enthusiasts are "Liking" it, visiting it and talking about what they are reading on the page. Recent Facebook posts from the practice's doctors have included a video on pets who save lives, a link to a list of recalls for pet food products, an article about pet booster seats, and a link to a "Loop the Lake Dog Walk" to encourage exercise for pet owners and pets during the winter months.

Strongsville veterinarian, Dr. Jeff Peacock is celebrating his 33rd year of service and hopes to continue building relationships by taking advantage of new communication opportunities as they become available. Commenting on this latest trend in providing information Dr. Jeff Peacock said, "Pet owners may be busier now, but they're just as interested as they have always been in learning about how to take great care of their pets. My associates and I are happy to take this extra step in providing information on pet wellness care in a way that's easily accessible. We want pet owners to know that we're here to help them provide the best care possible so they can truly enjoy all of the benefits of animal companionship."
