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:
- 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.
- Quick and Dirty Veterinary Social Media: shortcuts to getting a social media program off the ground
- Burn Out, Tune In: What happened to our profession? Why are so many vets frustrated, burned out, and ready to throw in the towel? Vets are trained to put others first at just about every turn, but this is the absolute wrong approach.
- Beating Dr. Google at his own game: I know you’re smart. You know you’re smart. Even your clients know you’re smart. So how come they won’t listen to you, but they’ll take advice from an internet “expert?” It’s not about facts, it’s about trust. We can get it back.
