It seems impossible for a veterinary clinic to be obsolete, but your practice may still be the least likely option if it’s falling behind more modern clinics. You owe it to your clients and to their pets to give them the care they deserve.
It doesn’t take much to get ahead of other veterinary clinics. You need to consider the following:
Your current location might not work if you want to get more clients. You want a place that is accessible enough to old and new clients. When moving to a bigger clinic, don’t forget to use Positive Impressions, LLC veterinary address labels with the new address when sending out cards. The products they can buy on your clinic should also use the same address to avoid confusion. It’s easy to cover the old address with new address labels, so spend some time on doing that.
Offer Additional Services
If pet owners can take their pet to a vet who can also provide them with the grooming items they need, why would they still go to your clinic and then a separate pet care shop? Offering a one-stop shop is a strategic move, and you’ll also attract clients who are just looking for pet care items. Knowing you have a clinic in the same location might turn them into loyal clients.
Pet owners don’t have the whole day to spend in your clinic. Hire extra help if you need someone to assist you in checking up pets. Another person, or a couple of people, can man the shop while you focus on your practice. In every area that may cause a bottleneck, you should have someone ready to assist.
Vet clinics are not made equally. You’ll stand out if you know what pets and clients need, and offer convenience.
