2021 Christmas Gifts Your Veterinary Team Will Love Part 2

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

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

Last week I put a call out to our awesome Business Members and asked them for some gift ideas for your team (and yourself!). I received so many great ideas that I had to publish two blog posts.

In case you missed it, click HERE to read Part One: Christmas gift ideas your veterinary team will love!

Platinum CPD

Platinum CPD believes that a commitment to continuing education is essential in enhancing professional skills, knowledge & career satisfaction. 

Which is why the team at Platinum CPD is so excited by their offer for your veterinary team!

Give Your Staff the Gift of Education! Join their Platinum Practice Membership Program by 31st December and receive an 18-month subscription for the price of 12!

Individual Practice Subscription - $1500 for an 18-month subscription (Special rates available for Corporate Practices)

Imagine if one annual subscription could provide your entire veterinary professional staff (both veterinarians and veterinary nurses) with all the CPD points they require? Imagine if they could accumulate their CPD requirements from the comfort of their own home; with the added flexibility of engaging at a time that best suits their lifestyle! Imagine never having to worry about whether your staff members have accumulated sufficient points or not! Sound appealing?

The Platinum Practice Membership encompasses a variety of structured and unstructured continuing education, delivered in a number of different formats. From Webinars to Journal Clubs; “Hot Topic” Panel Discussions to Ask the Expert open discussion sessions, their membership caters for all veterinarians and veterinary nurses in small animal practice.

iM3 - The Global Name in Veterinary Dentistry

iM3 is a family owned veterinary dental company established in Sydney Australia over 28 years ago. In that time, iM3 has grown to become a leading veterinary dental company setting the standard in product innovation, industry firsts and continuing education.

They've come up with a great idea for a gift that your team would love - dental hand instruments that have been ergonimically designed to sit comfortably in your hand! Their new range of Ergo dental instruments feature an innovative handle design with soft silicon inserts to provide added grip and comfort during use. 

Correct fitting hand instruments save time, improve cutting ability, increase tactile sensitivity and overall control resulting in better ergonomics, comfort, technique and safety. If hand sizes differ greatly within the practice, the recommended solution is to buy two sets in different sizes. This is safe and ergonomically suitable for each user and the different lengths means they suit even the smallest of hands!
