Tammy Vreelan and Robyn Geis, veterinary technicians at Sayrebrook Veterinary put this loveable dog Hammi in a TRASH CAN!!!! Why wasn't Animal Control called? Why were they able to keep their jobs???
Hammi is in a trash can because the sides prevent Hammi from lying down. Hammi suffers from megaesophagus and just finished dinner. Remaining upright until all the food ‘goes down the pipe’ so to speak is the remedy for this condition. Megaesophagus can be diagnosed by your veterinary (as it was by the great crew at Sayrebrook Veterinary), but it took the enterprising minds of these techs to think of using a trash can/ laundry hamper as a surefire method of keeping Hammi upright. ( Oh, and don’t worry…this can is NEVER used for trash.)
What you are reading above is a recent post placed on Facebook. The post captivates your attention, teaches you a little bit about veterinary medicine, introduced you personally to the fine team at Sayrebrook Veterinary and educates you about their kindness and ingenuity…but it does it in a friendly, colloquial manner. Of the many things you will hear or read about today, you will remember the picture, Hammi, the techs, and Sayrebrook Veterinary. As of July 21, 2012 this message has reached 500 individuals who are very likely to talk about Sayrebrook. Best of all it cost nothing, publicly distinguishes Sayrebrook’s team members, and is fun to produce
Brenda Tassava, Brie Messier and Phillip Barnes are three veterinary professionals who have mastered how to produce Social Media pieces like this and beyond. They do it on a daily basis for their practices and have tripled their reach or better. Their hospitals are at the very top of information searches and their business’ growth is up…all the while reducing their advertising budget…in Brenda’s case by as much as 20 thousand dollars a year!
These three, along with Halow Consulting, have put together a workshop for our veterinary peers aimed at getting even the most reluctant veterinary practice managers and owners understanding Social Media and using it specifically to increase traffic to their website and through their door. This lecture’s objectives can be prioritized accordingly:
1. Make it user friendly
2. Make sure the attendees walk out knowing what their next step is and how to do it.
3. Make it interesting and make it fun.
