Just got the latest newsletter from Gifting Warriors and we are so excited to see participation from POCA clinics all over the place:

Most clinics are offering $5 to $10 PTSD treatments.  You may not see a lot of them, but I think momentum will build.

Thanks for supporting our POCA Organizational Member Gifting Warriors!

We’ve signed up for this as well.
Has anyone already had vets come in via this program yet?
Just trying to anticipate any logistical adjustments we might need to make to our clinic systems.

I contacted him, too.  Playing phone tag and still trying to figure out how to do this.

MM, you mentioned that you just sit them anywhere.  I am concerned about space.  I have 14 chairs and need all of them for my busy hours.  I might be able to squeeze two or three folding upright chairs into the treatment room but that seems harsh to me.  I don’t know of I can stomach the idea of my vets sitting in the cheap, uncomfortable seats while the “real” patients relax in my fancy used recliners.

My waiting room is too small to treat them.  How many end up coming per week?  Treating vets with reduced fee & nada is something I have wanted to do for some time now.

Any suggestions?
