Why is Dr Sutton suggesting you get any of your food and recurrent meds from an online pharmacy? She is doing this to SAVE YOU MONEY!

Dr Sutton pays her Tequesta Vet Clinic staff very well. These top notch nurses don't need to be moving around inventory and big bags of pet food when they should be attending to patient care. Of course we will still stock a full pharmacy and stock the smaller smaller bags and cans of pet food, but Vets First Choice gets amazing pricing by buying in bulk. Dr Sutton doesn't need to pay her staff to sort patients' recurrent meds and foods.

Dr Sutton went to medical school to practice medicine, NOT TO SELL PET FOOD!!! She doesn't enjoy selling pet food nor taking her nursing staff away from patient care, sorting bags of food and taking up office space. We need to carry small bags prescription foods to see if pets like the food, but when a pet is on a prescription diet long-term, she wants you to get it through this online store and keep us out of it. 

Most of the Royal Canin foods get 15% off AND free delivery when a client is on "auto-ship". Auto-ship only requires you commit to buying one more time during the next year and can be canceled at any time. Of course, you can also get Purina prescription diets and Science prescription diets on this online store. Vets first choice will call you ten days before shipping to make sure you still want it. You get to determine how frequently it will be shipped. Again, this can be cancelled at any time. And it is delivered to your front door. Please help Dr Sutton utilize her amazing nurses taking care of patients. We at Tequesta Vet Clinic don't like selling pet food! The greatest benefit for the Royal Canin fans: you will save money!

Vets First Choice has FIFTEEN pharmacists and a large pharmacy staff. Auto ship medications are shipped FREE to your home. Other orders are shipped free if over $49. They are located in Nebraska and most orders arrive in 3 to 5 days. You no longer need to remember to stop by the clinic before you run out of meds. Additionally, Vets First Choice offers frequent rebates and coupons. We can pre-approve a prescription right in our hospital with an "E prescription" that you can fill at your leisure. You will get an email, click on the link and you will be on your way. Easy. This option is superior to 1-800-pet-meds in many ways. Perhaps the most important is that this is a fully authorized veterinary pharmacy. Many of the products purchased through 1-800-pet-meds won't be guaranteed by the manufacturer if the product is diverted to 1-800-pet-meds.

The typical veterinary clinic has thousands of dollars worth of product on it's pharmacy shelf. Dr Sutton has an extensive pharmacy, but Vets First Choice carries 5,000 prescriptions products. Yes, FIVE THOUSAND! The main reasons any veterinary hospital marks up product is to account for medications that may expire on the shelf and to pay hospital staff to count pills and make labels and stock pill vials and such. Staff time is a big part of it. We receive meds and foods into the hospital daily then sort them so the first to expire is in front of the shelf, and we monitor for expiration of products. A large veterinary pharmacy such as Vets First Choice has much lower loss due to product expiration. That means YOU SAVE MONEY. We save time. You then have more money to pay for veterinary services. Or, you could use that money to take your loved ones out to dinner.

Of course we will continue to maintain a full pharmacy at Tequesta Vet Clinic, but this offers our clients the convenience of home delivery, better pricing on many meds and foods and great customer service. Vets First Choice has a reputation for exceeding client expectations. If you are not handy with the internet, it's no big deal. They are more than happy to take phone orders. If you spend part of the year up north the shipping address can be easily changed with a phone call or email.

We at Tequesta Vet Clinic are your partners in pet health. Help Dr Sutton utilize her spectacular nursing staff for patient care rather than having them schlepp big bags of pet food around the clinic. You'll save some money while you're at it.

SUMMER DENTAL SPECIAL!

~~As my practice grows I regret that during season I sometimes don't get to spend as much time with my clients as I like.  I don't like to rush when chatting about a pet's health, and I love the social aspect of interacting with my clients once the exam is over.  Many of my clients are also my dear friends.  The seasonal component of south Florida is tricky for small business!  I need to keep my nurses employed during the slower months.  How can I nudge my year-round clients to have their annual wellness care during the statistically slowest months in south Florida vet clinics?
I will discount dental packages 10% for the months June through September.  That's a savings of $29 to $49! This offers financial incentive to locals to schedule wellness care during the summertime.  I hope to keep our business flow steady for the sake of my amazing nursing staff.  (They need to feed their kids year round!)  And, it will give me more time to spend with each patient.

FREE MICROCHIPS!

~~I want all of my patients to have a microchip, and I’m willing to do it for free. Yep, I pay for the chip and my staff registers it at no cost to our clients.  If a pet is lost, a chip provides the best chance for reuniting the pet with the family.  A client recently told me that one of my free microchips saved his cat.  His indoor cat snuck outside and was gone for 6 weeks.  He was reunited with the family because of the free microchip I implanted.
As my current patients come in for exams or annual check-ups I will scan and implant a chip if needed -- with owner’s consent of course.  Folks do get to pay the regular $55 exam fee (which is pretty much the cost of a chip) and I will examine the pet from nose to toes.
This is a gift to my current and new clients.  The other clinic in Tequesta charges $68 for a microchip.  Our patients get a microchip for free.  If someone goes to another clinic and just wants to come for a chip and continue going to that vet, they can ask their own vet if they will give them a free chip. This is a gift to Tequesta Vet Clinic patients only.  I’d love for all the area clinics to chip patients for free.  Who knows…  I’m hoping I will start a trend, making this a common veterinary practice at other clinics.  Spread the word!
