Three Awesome Home Remedies For Unwell Pets

Last year, Americans spent a record-breaking $55.7 billion on their pets, and by the end of this year, it looks like they’ll spend nearly $60 billion. About $14.37 of this spending — approximately 26% — was for pet health solutions, like emergency vet care and routine checkups at veterinary care centers. Another $13.14 billion — about 24% — was spent on medicine for animals.

While every pet owner wants their four-legged-friends to get the best care and attention when they’re even the littlest bit unwell, they usually wind up paying exorbitant fees, and taking away the time that vets and veterinary technicians could be spending with more seriously ill or injured animals.

Luckily, there are several great home remedies you can offer your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well. Here’s a few types of homemade medicine for animals that can help your pets get well again.

Sports Waters Can Help Animals Recover From a Bout of Vomiting or Diarrhea.

Those flavorless electrolyte-replacing liquids aren’t only medicine for athletes, they’re also medicine for animals, too. They can help animals rehydrate after an illness just as they can help athletes rehydrate. In fact, they might just be what your doggy needs after a bout of diarrhea or vomiting. You may want to contact your vet about the appropriate dosages before giving them any, though.

Lemon Can Fend Off Fleas.

Instead of getting that overpriced, over-the-counter medicine for animals that promises to ward off fleas, but only seems to just make your dog sticky and smelly, why not get a lemon for a fraction of the price? Fleas hate citrus, so if you put a small amount of fresh lemon juice on your pet’s fur, they won’t even bother biting.

Chamomile Tea Can Relieve Irritated Skin.

Dog or cat has a rash? Chamomile tea is a great medicine for animals with irritated skin. All you have to do is brew some tea, put it in a spray bottle, and spray it on the irritated part of the pet’s skin.

Keep in mind that all this homemade medicine for animals is only for minor problems. If you suspect that something might be seriously wrong — something beyond a stomachache — you need to take your pet to a vet, who will be able to give him or her the prescriptive strength drugs he or she needs.

Three Easy Internet Marketing Tips for Vets

Ways to increase business in a veterinary hospital

These days it can be overwhelming to think about new advertising strategies for your clinic. There are a plethora of things that can be done in the ways of local advertising with signs, events, and so on. Additionally, the internet offers a number of really easy ways to get your message out to your clients and potential clients. If you aren’t sure where to start, here are three easy vet internet marketing ideas to get you started.

A Professional Website
This is not the easiest thing on this list, but it is the most important. The start to any internet marketing campaign is having a good website that is easy to use, attractive, and has information on it that will be of use to your clients. If you’re stuck, look up some professional website design tips and tricks to get you started.

Email
This might seem like an odd tip — people stopped actually opening emails in like 2004, right? After they lost their novelty and started to become eerily similar to the amount of paper junk mail that people receive at their homes. The thing is, for whatever reason people actually do open their emails, and the return on investment for email marketing is a pretty surprising $40 per one dollar spent.

Social Media
Another one of the best veterinary marketing ideas that you might not be taking advantage of is social media. It seems like every person and business entity in the world is on one or more social media site these days like Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. Find a couple of sites that are going to work for your clinic and stick with them. Make sure you update things frequently and engage with your followers on a regular basis. You’ll have a lot of competition and it can be easy to get forgotten by your followers if you don’t make an effort.

Improve Your Vet Marketing With One Easy Step

When it comes to your veterinary marketing strategies, you probably already know that you need to use the internet to your advantage, and the basis for that is having a professional website. Once you have one, there is a pretty easy way to boost its appeal and help supplement your internet marketing tactics.

Why You Need a Blog
One of the most effective (and fun) veterinary marketing secrets is to have an active blog, and yes, it needs to be active. More than half of businesses that have an active blog have acquired a customer because of it. Having a blog will also be good for your SEO and help you rank more highly in search engine results — which is what you want since 80% of people between the ages of 18 and 34 use search engines like Bing, Yahoo!, and Google to find a vet.

What You Can Do With It
If you’re wondering just what you can do with a blog, the short answer is: a lot. You can offer your own opinion on news in the vet or the animal world and establish or assert yourself as an authority on these subjects. Offer tips and advice for pet care related things like how to clip your pet’s nails or why it’s so important to prevent heartworms. All of these things are also good things to use share and promote on the social media sites your clinic has a presence on (and yes, your vet clinic needs to have a social media presence).

What’s important here is making sure that you get into a good habit of updating your blog frequently. Blogging is one of those things that can slip through the cracks if you don’t stay on top of it, so schedule a time each week to focus on creating new and interesting content — or ask one of your particularly creative staff members to do it for you.
