Homecare Instructions in Spanish

Module 3 of the Spanish for Veterinary Professionals courses focuses not only on reinforcing everything you’ve learned so far, but the next step after a diagnosis has been made. We go over prescriptions and homecare instructions in Spanish. This part is hard even in English as people may feel overwhelmed, worried about the diagnosis or what it means for their companion; how much it might cost, how to give the medications. It’s always a good idea to have instructions in writing, but to be able to reinforce the written instructions by going over it in Spanish is going to be gold.

This is one of the reasons we provide classes to veterinary professionals – the whole team can be involved in the communication with your Spanish-speaking clients. You’ll learn and reinforce vocabulary like spoonfuls, to give with food, keep the bandage dry, call us if the pet is not eating, etc., etc. The best part is, since the courses are designed to be relevant to you and your practice, you get to practice the instructions using your own words. 

At this point in the modules, you can practice everything from when the client first walks in the door: introductions, getting the history, going through the diagnostics and diagnoses and then finally the homecare instructions. If you have any questions along the way, our teachers are more than happy to provide context and examples. By this time, you’ll have made a great bond with your teacher and your classmates (if you have them) and all of this will be fun. 

We keep the classes relevant, interesting and fun to maximize that hour. We create a safe space for you to be able to try, to make mistakes and to learn the best way possible. Contact us if you would like to take the classes.

Hasta luego,
