  • Pet owners give less than half of the veterinary recommended ectoparasite treatments each year


    Spring is the time of year when many cat and dog owners think about ectoparasite treatments and some may even ‘stock up’ with what they believe is a sufficient supply to cover their pet during the perceived risk period. In fact, the Simplyhealth Professionals team has been highlighting a study showing that most pet owners tend to treat for only four to six months a year.*
    Those on a practice pet health plan have parasite control included in their plan making adherence to their vet’s recommendation

  • Why do some veterinary practices have no issues with recruitment?
    Two pretty much identical jobs: same area of the country, similar role responsibilities, similar remuneration, similar business size and structures. Yet, one ad receives 4 quality applicants and the other receives none. Why?

    Both veterinary practices have clear plans for the future and are investing in their current teams and business to ensure provision of a quality service for clients. Both practices could be a great place to work. However, one of these practices has a reputation as a good employer, the other has none.
