Veterinary prescription diets offer such a huge benefit for patients and increase the quality of care they receive. I mean how many times have we thought, I wish there was a human version of satiety support or mobility support! How cool is it there are diets out there that literally dissolve urinary crystals? Or help manage kidney disease? But, from a management perspective, the diets can be a challenging thing to manage for several reasons:

  1. They are bulky, heavy, and require a lot of storage space
  2. They are expensive to purchase, and do not have a large profit margin
  3. Clients get cranky when you do not have their food in stock
  4. It is a challenge to get staff to send the correct diet out the door

They don’t necessarily need to be a challenge though! We can do several things to manage them more appropriately so they work for us not against us.

That is why I created the Inventory Manager’s Unofficial Guide to Prescription Diets. It is a {FREEBIE!} and includes 10 pages full of information to help you create a diet management program for your hospital. There are several articles that may help provide more of a background to things I talk about in the guide.

If you have any questions or are curious about some of the reports I use, feel free to email me, and I would be more than happy to help you out!
