We did a survey of veterinarians and practice managers that attended two large veterinary conferences earlier this year. The questions had to do with telephone and texting capabilities for their practices. We then compared them to actual consumer preferences (i.e. what their clients want) and found some pretty big surprises.
I recently returned from a week in the mountains of Colorado at a “dude ranch” called Lost Valley. Actually the preferred term for places like this is “guest ranch” and my family has been going there for years. It’s in the middle of the Pike National Forest about 90 minutes SW of Denver and there’s pretty much no cellular service and extremely limited internet. It’s a great place to go and unwind and spend time with family. One of the things that is really special about Lost Valley is their horseback riding program. They have a remuda of almost 150 horses and provide guided horseback rides for a variety of skill levels. Whether it’s your first time riding a horse or you are an advanced rider, guests receive personalized attention and instruction from qualified wranglers.
