A few days ago I hinted at some changes comin’ ’round the bend (what is it with me quoting song lyrics today?). Welp, they’re here!
I have recently started working for a mobile vet named Dr. Matt Bendall.
I know, I know: I’ve been saying for a long time that I never wanted to return to the veterinary field. But let me tell you why I changed my mind:
First and foremost, I am extremely impressed by Dr. Bendall. We share very similar philosophies about nutrition, behavior, vaccinations, medication, and client relations–in other words, he’s exactly the kind of vet I love to work for. He spends an enormous amount of time with each client, discussing the issues that are important to them and making sure that their questions are answered and that he doesn’t leave until they are armed with information and resources. He is gentle, patient, and open minded. Honestly, I can’t say enough about him. Suffice it to say, he’s a total badass and I’d highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good small animal vet.
This job is only part time, which enables me to keep my pet sitting and behavior consulting business without being entirely dependent on it. It is, in other words, an excellent solution to the problem I’d mentioned a few blog posts ago. I’ll even have time to do mid-day pet sits! Overall, it is going to have very little impact on my pet sitting schedule, but alas, it will prevent me from performing certain jobs. Due to this job I have had to make a few changes to my Price List, so please click on the link to see if any of those changes will affect you. It will also affect a few of my out of service area clients as well, but I am planning to contact most of those people individually to discuss possible alternatives. If you haven’t heard from me but you have any questions, though, of course please feel free to send me an email.
So that’s pretty much what’s happening over here at FBTB. I do have one request: since I am having to reduce the types of jobs I can do, I’m on the hunt for another vet tech/pet sitter/bird knowledgeable individual I can tag team with. My colleague whom I had been collaborating with was offered a full time job as a vet tech at a great clinic, so I’m back to square one in the search for a colleague. If any of you meet or hire someone whom you think would fit the bill, please let me know! Thanks!
