Small Business Saturday is on November 28th, which is a time to take a moment to pause and think about your community. Like the Mom and Pop coffee shop around the corner, the beauty salon down the road, the bakery with your favorite bread and pastries, the restaurant where your family has “the usual” booth, and the little shops that are your go-to’s for gifts. This includes your locally-owned veterinary clinic with the team that you trust with your pet’s health and wellness.
There are many ways that you can support your locally-owned veterinary clinic right now so that they can continue to provide the best quality care for your pet.
WRITE A REVIEW
Write a positive online review for your locally-owned veterinary clinic. If you are unsure where to go to leave your review, email the clinic and ask! They will most likely send you the direct links. Otherwise, most clinics are on Google and Facebook.
SOCIAL MEDIA LOVE
Do you follow your locally-owned veterinary clinic on social media? If not, now is the time to start following their pages! Then we encourage you to like, comment, and share your veterinary clinic’s posts. If you think a relative or friend would be interested in reading a post or blog, be sure to tag that friend or send them the link!
CONTINUE TO USE FOR VETERINARY CARE
When your pet needs veterinary care, use your locally-owned veterinary clinic’s telemedicine or curbside services.
PURCHASE PRESCRIPTIONS THROUGH THE CLINIC
Purchase your pet’s medications, preventatives and similar supplies through your family veterinarian. Many locally-owned veterinary clinics have online stores and offer curbside pick-up. Check with your veterinary clinic’s website before going to a big-box retailer for pet medications.
