Leading Veterinary Group with over 70 Vets in London Releases New YouTube Video

The Goddard Veterinary Group consists of over 70 vets in London, three dedicated veterinary hospitals and a wealth of other services to provide dedicated care for clients and their pets. Their new YouTube video showcases their practice and friendly staff. Goddard Veterinary Group started with just two practices in East London in 1952, fast forward 61 years to the release of their “Vets in London” YouTube video, they now boast 47 surgeries including three veterinary hospitals, as well as a pathology laboratory, a hydrotherapy unit, boarding kennels and cattery.

Regional Manager and Head Vet, Jeremy Stewart explains, “Here at the Goddard Veterinary Group, we’re very lucky. We’ve been a practice running for the last sixty years and we are a successful practice. That enables us to have the financial ability to reinvest and that is investing in the hospitals, in the branches, in the staff that we employ, enabling us to provide the best level of clinical care that we can for our patients.”

What started as a family run business in 1952 has expanded and grown over the years. The practice is still privately owned and is managed and staffed by a caring, hard-working and dedicated team. Julie Driscoll, the Head Receptionist at one of their practices says, “I like the fact that it’s a small family run business that although it’s grown as a whole, it still retains that individual feel.”

Their YouTube video showcases their Wanstead Veterinary Hospital, which was the first of three hospitals to be established by the Goddard Veterinary Group. Each hospital supports their local veterinary surgeries and they are open all year round, 24 hours a day. Jeremy Robinson, the Goddard Veterinary Group’s General Manager says, “Each surgery is fully equipped with surgical facilities and offers a personal, friendly yet professional service. Our network of branches is fully supported by our veterinary hospitals. These offer specialist referrals, as well as being open 24 hours a day.”

The referrals are available to all Goddard Veterinary Group practices and all other vets in London via a veterinary surgeon. They offer referrals in neurology, dermatology, ophthalmology and diagnostic imagining. Each of their referral disciplines have an RCVS or European Recognised Specialist. Tom Flynn, the Clinical Director says, “We have several Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons specialists and diplomats in a wide variety of disciplines and that gives us the ability to offer the highest level of expertise.” Goddard Veterinary Group also benefits from a veterinary physiotherapist, who is based at Stone Lion Hospital.

The Goddard Veterinary Group are dedicated to giving their clients and pets the highest level of care possible and so offer training courses to all of the vets that they employ. “As a vet at Goddard Veterinary Group, I feel it’s a great place to work. It gives me the opportunities to further my career. I’ve had numerous training courses and it means I can provide a high level of care to my clients and to my pets that I see.” says Ruth Gloster, a Branch Surgery Vet from their Putney practice.

Tom Flynn adds, “We recognise that each pet is a unique individual and a really important member of the family. Working with our vets in London, we can form the best plan possible to keep that pet as healthy as possible for as long as possible.”

Housing Market Crash and Rising Medical Costs, Is There A Connection?

As millions of American homeowners know, the housing market crash was fueled by inflated home values and bank loans that were high above the equity or actual value of “underwater” homes. According to Trisha Lotzer, JD., health-care attorney and CEO of Physis, Inc., a similar threat for banks, borrowers and owners of many of the nation’s medical, dental, optometry and veterinary practices must be averted.

Like residential real estate, medical practices may be marketed and sold by brokers. Brokers in the business of selling medical practices commonly charge 7-12% commission. The commission alone can add $80,000 to $2,000,000 to the purchase price, depending on the size of the facility–and drive up the bank note accordingly.

Like real estate agents, the job of the practice broker is to get the seller the highest selling price possible. Unlike real estate agents, however, brokers are often the only ones who value the practices they have for sale–giving them a built in incentive to inflate the value of practices and increase their commission. Ross Landreth, MBA, explains that the problem occurs when a practice is arbitrarily valued, purchased and financed at $1,500,000, but only has an actual fair market value (per USPAP approved valuation standards) of $850,000. This could mean that the practice does not cash-flow at $1,500,00 and that the new purchasers would have to raise the price of services in order to maintain profitability and pay back the bank note. This increase in the cost of health care does not increase the earnings of the practice owners or physicians but is passed along to patients and insurance providers.

Pet Owners Save a Trip to the Animal Clinic and Find Pet Meds Online

Pet owners find themselves as contented as their cats and dogs with more time in their afternoon as they save a trip to the vet. As more and more consumers turn to the online community to find what they need, pet lovers find all their petmeds needs on the web. No longer do they have to make an extra trip to the pet clinic or pet store to find Frontline, Heartgard, Sentinel or any other pet need because they can get it just as easily on the Internet, never leaving their house or the company of their pet. All pet medications are USDA/EPA approved and exactly what they’d expect to find in a vet’s office or pet store.

The Internet creates convenience for everyone, including owners of animals who may find it difficult to work their animal’s needs for pet meds in with their busy schedules. Why should pet owners have to travel to meet the health needs of their pets when the Internet provides every pet medication conveniently at the fingertips? Online pet stores are only as far away as the nearest computer. More and more pet owners realize that the convenience of online pet supply outlets can ease a schedule and provide more time in the day.

The health needs of pets can vary widely and get considerably expensive. With online petmeds, all forms of pet medicine and treatments are available in one location at prices that are considerably lower than a pet shop or vet clinic. The online store saves money by having less real estate and employee expenses to contend with. These savings can then be passed onto the pet owner through lower prices. Not only can pet lovers find everything they need for their pets easier, but the pet meds also tend to be less expensive.

Shipping costs have deterred some potential online shoppers, but many online stores get around this by offering reduced or free shipping. At Petmeds, for example, shipping on all orders over $39 is completely free, adding to the savings with reduced overhead.

About the Author:

Sam Sheppard is a long time pet owner and blogger who finds it hard to find time in his schedule to get all his pet meds for the animals he loves. With online petmeds, Sheppard finds more time not only for writing but for quality lap time for all his furry friends as well.

During these lectures, physicians will talk about persons who have experienced healing and freedom from long lasting, severe and chronic diseases in a miraculous way. Medical documents will be presented; the experts will explain the intricacies of a superior healing power that has been widely forgotten in modern medicine. The teachings of Bruno Groening (1906-1959), who became world famous due to extraordinary healings in the fifties, are taken as a basis for the lectures. Bruno Groening said time and again: “There is no incurable – God is the greatest physician”. He spoke about a higher power that he called the healing stream, life power or divine energy. This power is abundantly available for everyone. The knowledge about how to make use of this power is passed on free of charge in the worldwide non-profit, volunteer based organization of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.

The work of the MWF is supported by some well-known people in the United States, e.g. Dr. Christiane Northrup and Dr. Carl Simonton. Link to information online:
