2021 Christmas Gifts Your Veterinary Team Will Love Part 1

Choosing the right Christmas gifts for your team can be a challenge - especially after the last year we've all experienced!

With only four weeks until Christmas, it's time to start writing that list and getting organised.

So to help you out, I put a call out to our awesome Business Members and asked them for some gift ideas for your team (and yourself!) and this is what they suggested....

Equine Veterinary & Dental Services (EVDS)

EVDS is an equine only veterinary practice & leading Australian training centre for equine vets and they can't WAIT to get back into running their Equine Dental Workshops next year.

Vetprac bring innovative educational opportunities to the professional community, building confidence and competence. They've already released a number of workshops and online courses for 2022 which are filling fast and you can find them all by clicking HERE to visit our online veterinary CPD calendar and adding VetPrac in the search bar.

The VetPrac team know the importance of CPD and understand how frustrating it's been as travel restrictions have stopped so many training opportunities over the last two years so they have TWO awesome suggestions for Christmas gifts for your team.

1. A VetPrac gift card. These gift cards can be purchased for the following set amounts: $500  |  $1000  |  $2000  |  $3000  |  $3500  |  $4000

2.  Giddyup and save $200 with VetPrac's ticket to Equine Enlightenment in 2022. Bundle all 3 equine courses and save $200

The 3 courses are: 1. Equine Neurology in Practice with Dr Elizabeth Tee (Online), 19 January - 2 February 2022; 2. Equine Practical Anaesthesia and Pain Management with Dr Joanne Rainger (Online), 3 February - 10 March 2022; 3. Introduction to Equine Reproduction Workshop with Dr David Pascoe and Dr João Prado, 2 - 3 April 2022, Oakey QLD

Waggy Dog Marketing  

Waggy Dog provide marketing solutions for busy veterinarians. Who has time to manage social media, create new content & set up promotions? They do!

Which is exactly why their suggestion for a Christmas gift for your team is such a great one. They know how busy you've all been and no matter how important you believe marketing and client education is for your veterinary practice - there are only so many hours in a day.

Waggy Dog want to help you out by offering 20% off for the first month for their social media services. They normally charge $200 per month but will discount your first month to $160

Their monthly social media services include:

  1. Branded pet health and safety posts (artwork & written content)
  2. Branded seasonal and promotional infographics
  3. UNLIMITED clinic supplied photos and patient stories
  4. Seven day monitoring and response to client comments, messages and reviews
  5. Monthly performance report
  6. Posted directly to Facebook and Instagram

Click HERE to find out more about their Social Media Services, including some samples.

You're not locked into any contracts so over the busy holiday season, why not give yourself and your team a break and let Waggy Dog handle your social media?
