AAHA launches public awareness campaign
Jul 01, 2005
All accredited practices will receive promotional materials that can be given to clients and local media.
The PSA features a senior Labrador Retriever and spotlights AAHA while educating viewers on senior pet healthcare.
Aja says 7,500 TV airings and 20,000 radio spots are expected to broadcast for the campaign.
"Our profession is small, having about 75,000 practitioners in the country," Aja says. "Considering that number, the association is even smaller, so we rely on individual veterinarians to tell clients what AAHA is about."
AAHA will be providing CDs for office staff with the promotional kits that that can be used for new hires and current staff to more accurately field client inquiries about the association.
Pfizer Animal Health provided an educational grant that funded part of the campaign.
