What You Need to Set Your Veterinary Practice Apart
The veterinary industry is poised to boom! At the end of 2017, research showed that approximately 57% of all US households owned a pet, with dogs leading the way. This is up exponentially from years past. And what's more, people will do just about anything for their beloved pets—they are after all family.
Given the staggering statistics when it comes to pet ownership, it's no wonder that veterinary practices are popping up more and more throughout the country. While this is great news for the people that own pets, it means more competition for vets. So the questions thus stand: what are you doing to stand out? How is your practice differentiating itself from the others? One of the things you absolutely need to have is the latest cutting edge technology when it comes to animal care. Below are just a few of the must-have tools for any vet practice that wants to remain competitive.
A Software System, to Help Manage Your Practice. Let's start with the basics…it's time to get updated and that means ensuring that your records, customer interactions, patient data, inventory orders and just about everything else are managed via a centralized software system—in the end, this will save you a great deal of time and money.
Laparoscopic Equipment. Long done on human patients, laparoscopic surgeries are now becoming more and more popular on animals as well. Of course, owners are going to want the least invasive procedures for their pets, therefore it's important to have the right equipment on hand.
Ultrasound. Increasingly, vets are turning to ultrasound technology for their imaging needs; not only is it more comprehensive than an x-ray, but it can be used to help diagnose various diseases which may afflict a pet.
The landscape as far as the veterinary field is concerned is wide open; that said, it is imperative to stay on top of your game. At First Union, we work with vet practices as well as the manufacturers/suppliers of veterinary equipment to ensure that they have the funding needed for whatever project and/or growth opportunity they are pursuing.
