With ten years of veterinary practice and six years of writing a popular pet blog on a daily basis, Dr. Vogelsang understands the pet community. Her speaking style mirrors her blog: if it’s not fun, it’s not interesting. If you’re looking for a speaker with 5,000 Power Point slides full of text, keep moving along. Dr. Vogelsang covers a wide range of topics including:
- Quick and Dirty Veterinary Social Media: shortcuts to getting a social media program off the ground
- Top 3 Social Media Channels for Veterinarians: You don’t need to join every single social media site on the planet, nor should you. Here’s the ones that count.
- Don’t Burn Out, Run Away: how international volunteering can remind you why you love this field
- How to talk to clients on social media: If you’re talking to potential clients on Facebook the same way you do in the exam room, you’re missing the point of social media. Learn what the pet community is looking for when they log on and how to engage that group to drive new clients off the computer and into your clinic.
- How to Be a Good Death Fairy: It’s rarely talked about, but counseling owners about the process of death is one of the most important and meaningful services you can provide. As a home euthanasia provider, Dr. Vogelsang will outline what to offer, how to talk to clients about death, and how to ease some of the pain of this process for our wonderful clients.
