My name is Dorian and I am the Owner and Operator of My Vet Mentor Consulting. Two months ago I was a Hospital Administrator of a veterinary practice. More than that, I have been in the vet industry in a number of roles for the past 22 plus years. If you’d like to read more about our story, please click here.
Why are you receiving this email?
During my 20+ years in the veterinary management field, I received many emails…but not like the one here.
I would often read the email and then ask myself if the writer even bothered to try and get to know what what I had done at the practice for which I was currently working. I mean, the email is suggesting we do something, we actually started six months or a year ago.
There currently is one going around now that you’ve probably seen once or twice yourself. It goes something like this:
Looking at your website, we can tell you are in need of a new site. Have you considered a re-design? We can get your site to show up on the first page of Google and improve load-time and SEO, etc…
I was (and still am) amazed with this type of email, because I know the sender of the email never even took to the time to look at our site at all. They hadn’t run simple speed tests to see if what they were proposing was even something we needed, or would be good for us.
I know this because took pride in our SEO and load-times and always worked diligently on our site and updated it often. It was something I really enjoyed. So much so that I actually built other sites in my free time, and as such I took the time to compare our site with those we considered our competition. I knew where we were regarding SEO and load-times, and these emails were way off the mark. It caused me to either completely ignore the email (which I hope you don’t do now), or respond is a way that let them know I felt they should at least look at a site before they send out these emails.
Are you still reading?

We understand that Veterinary Management can seem overwhelming. There is a old saying that asks “How do you eat an elephant?” While the answer is a simple one, One bite at a time. It’s really not that easy.
Once you hear the answer, your next question is probably “Okay, where do I begin?” It’s easy to say ‘one bite at a time’, but in reality when you have something as large as an elephant, the challenge is where to even begin? This is where My Vet Mentor can help. We’ll help devise a plan of attack, so to speak.
