Introducing QualiCura 2.0
AniCura’s quality program, QualiCura, was established in 2015 and updated in 2021 to consist of 14 instead of 9 focus areas with both medical and organizational quality standards. The adjustments align well with Mars Veterinary Health and the upgraded program was rolled out in AniCura Netherlands in 2021.
Over the past few decades veterinary care has evolved significantly with more advanced diagnostics and treatment procedures. In parallel the pet population has increased and with that the expectations of pet owners.
Together with AniCura’s preferred diagnostic supplier, AniCura performed analyses of pre-anesthetic testing and invested in in-house laboratory equipment. These initiatives can help improve patient safety.
Habits and Practices Investigated: Anesthesia and Analgesia
Risks Associated with anesthesia and analgesia are well-recognized and reported in the AniCura Patient Safety Improvement System (APSIS). AniCura Sweden therefore hired a diplomate in Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia, Mathieu Raillard, to map these procedures.
AniCura Denmark Launched Vaccination Guidelines for Dogs and Cats
Veterinary quality is a high priority for AniCura and having a committee of experienced colleagues who keep track of the latest research and recommendations is a huge benefit for AniCura Denmark’s Associates.
Preventive Health Care programs like AniPlan help pet owners budget for their pet’s needs. AniPlan is one of AniCura’s main focuses in preventive care and it has grown consistently, with 40% more pets on plans in the past year.
AniCura’s digital veterinary services as the AniCura app continue to grow, strengthening our digital-physical presence. The app increases the wellbeing of our pets, providing easier access to veterinary care and serving as a flexible workplace for our Associates.
Nutrition Engagement - through measuring of body condition score
As veterinary care becomes more specialized and complex, it is increasingly difficult to keep track of the full cycle of care. Therefore, preventive care is an integral part of AniCura’s strategy, both to prevent illness in the first place and also to prevent relapse after treatment.
AniCura Sweden Supports Underprivileged Pet Owners’ Pets
Underprivileged people, such as the homeless, cannot always prioritize veterinary care for their pets. Faktumdagen* (“Faktum day”) is a yearly event sponsored by AniCura Västra Djursjukhuset, which offers free care and treatment for these pets.
AniCura Denmark collaborating with Aalborg Zoo and Service Dogs Association
Zoos in Denmark handle several important tasks, such as insemination programs, breeding collaborations, nature conservation and research at a very high level. AniCura is happy to help.
The Service Dogs Association (STH) is a non-profit association that aims to help people with mobility impairments. AniCura Denmark wants to support this, entering into collaboration with STH, to ensure the best treatment for service dogs.
