Learn To Care About Your Pets with Harvey.

Learn To Care About Your Pets with Harvey is a storybook designed to give vets, veterinary nurses and other pet welfare professionals an opportunity to interact with young pet owners of the future.

The colourful, 20-page, A4 size children’s storybook follows Harvey through a typical day with his own vet in a busy practice.

Veterinary incentive

The book contains fun challenges, including word searches, colouring pages and spot the difference competitions, as well as an A3 pin the tail on Harvey poster with space to record veterinary contact details and dates to remember.

The authors say by holding the imagination and interest of children it will be a great help in maintaining pet health. They also say vets can use this incentive to ensure regular check-up visits and likely follow to other routine treatments.

Small investment

The authors suggest a cost price of £1 per storybook and a recommended retail price of £1.99.

They said: “For a small investment the storybooks can be used as a free gift to promote your practice/business, ideal for school or community projects and/or sell to support a local animal charity – and still get your money back.”
