What a Veterinary Team Wants

9/8 | 11:30 AM 

We're used to having to run fast just to keep up with customer expectations but what about the expectations of our team? They're rising too. In this session, we take the time to look at things from the perspective of our teams and seek to achieve empathy. This then forms the starting point for our efforts to design improved experiences for them.

New Solutions for the Pet Obesity Pandemic

9/7 | 12:45 PM 

You know how to deliver that all-important spay/neuter talk. Think about it, isn’t that the time we should be making nutritional recommendations? With spay and neuter surgeries increasing the risk of obesity, don’t we need to be telling clients how we are going to solve that problem? Let’s leave out the politics, end the pet obesity pandemic, and add nutrition solutions to your practice.

Workshop

Paying for Care: Getting Clients to Say "Yes"

9/6 | 10:00 AM 

This talk will review the latest data on the rising cost of pet care as well as new findings around trends in consumers’ “willingness to pay” for veterinary care and how offering payment alternatives can make a huge difference. Every practice offers payment options of one kind or another but very few pet owners use them—what can you do to increase “yes”?
