This is what we’re all about.
The Vetitude is a website and social media brand created by Lauren Smith, DVM.
Here at The Vetitude, we know that dealing with pet owners can be difficult, emotionally draining, and sometimes completely frustrating. If only our two-legged clients were as easy to deal with as our four-legged patients our jobs would be so much more satisfying.
So how do we decrease the number of difficult clients we have to deal with? How do we turn the complainers, the guilters, the threateners, and the know-it-alls into cooperative and compliant pet parents? And how do we set boundaries with, and bounce back from, the people we can’t get through to?
That’s what we’re here to help you with. So come check us out and get the tools you need to make clients putty in your hands.
Talking to clients is hard. It’s even harder now that they can’t be in the clinic with their pet. Download this free handout to help keep your clients connected during curbside appointments.
