For years, the Denver Area Veterinary Medical Society (now CVMA Chapter 6 | Denver Area) has published the Healthy New Pet Guide to connect some 40,000 new pet adopters with member veterinarians who provide them a free veterinary exam following adoption. As of 2018, CVMA has revamped the booklet and combined it with the Return for Care program.
Return for Care is a program developed by CVMA and CATalyst Council. It is the next generation of client acquisition programs and helps support happy, healthy pets in forever homes. Like its predecessors, the Healthy New Pet Guide and the Free Exam Booklet, Return for Care is a chance to connect with new clients and to serve your community at the same time. In this new iteration, there are a few key changes.
