[date , i.e., July 30, 2014, city, state] – {Your news lead goes here. Make sure it is a few short sentences that make up a paragraph that tells what the news is. This is not a feature article; get to the point. If someone only publishes that first paragraph, does it tell the whole story? For example:]

Smith Veterinary Services is happy to announce the addition of John Jones, DVM, DACVS, to our practice. Dr. Jones is a board certified surgeon who will expand our surgical and lameness services to clients in the Parkside, Pennsylvania, area.

[Next add more information about Dr. Jones and your practice; do not use long sentences or paragraphs, and do not exceed one page]

[End the press release with a paragraph that lets people know how they can get in touch with you for more information, including your address, phone, email, website and social media.]

[If you send this press release to news media, add an additional paragraph at the bottom that says photos are available by contacting a specific person with email and phone, and let media outlets know that Dr. Jones is available for interviews by contacting a specific person with email and phone.]
