We make it easy for you to save money
Saving money is probably the first reason you would consider joining the Veterinary Buyers Group. It’s difficult to compete against other practices who are much larger or part of a corporate group and negotiating your own deals with suppliers takes time you just don’t have.
When you join VBG, you have immediate access to deals and savings that will reduce your overheads and save you money. We are continuously looking for new partners who are keen to offer members better deals.
If you’re a one to two vet practice earning around $700,000 you can expect to save around $10,000 p.a. on your drug bill alone. If you’re a three or four vet practice earning around $1.2 million, you can expect to save $14,000 p.a. on your drug bill alone. Further savings can be made depending on how you take advantage of the deals on offer.
We make it easy for you to save
Being part of the Veterinary Buyers Group community makes it easy for you to save money by simplifying your accounting processes and allowing you to track your stock purchases and sales. You’ll also automatically receive your rebates and reports so none of your time is wasted following anything up. All you need to do is make use of our preferred partners when ordering, then sit back and enjoy your savings.
Practice Management Resources
As a VBG member you’ll have access to a constantly growing range of resources to help you manage your business more successfully. These resources range from a detailed Financial Spreadsheet to help you track and manage all of the Key Performance Indicators in your practice, to marketing and human resources management tools.
Regular email newsletters with special offers, tips and information to help you build a successful veterinary business.
Member’s Only Access
We offer a ‘Member’s Only’ section on the VBG website where all of the tools, resources and information to help you manage and grow your veterinary practice are stored. We know it can be tricky to keep track of everything on offer and sometimes it may not be the right time for you to implement that new marketing program, which is why we store all of our member resources in an easy to find ‘Member’s Only’ section.
Access to our Closed Facebook Group
VBG members all receive access to our members only, closed access Facebook Group where useful information is posted and you can connect with other VBG members to share your questions, concerns and successes.
We’re here for you
As a VBG member you are encouraged to contact us if you have any questions about managing your veterinary business. We’re not just here to help you save money, we also want to help make your life as a veterinary practice owner easier. If we don’t immediately have the answer to your question or the right resource to solve your problem, we’ll research and find it for you.
We understand that changes within the veterinary industry have created an extremely competitive and dynamic environment which requires managers and owners to be even more commercially aware than in the past. This can be tough to achieve on your own but easily attainable when you’re a part of a larger group.
We understand that the quality of care you offer your patients is incredibly important to you and maintaining your independence with regards to treatment options is an essential part of the service you offer.
We also understand that you want to be the one who receives the benefits from all the hard work you put into your veterinary practice.
VBG can offer you the best tools so you can continue offering your clients personal service and the best veterinary care while increasing your profits. You’re free to choose whether or not you use the products and services offered by the VBG Partners. If you feel another provider offers a product or service that is better for your patients and clients (either financially or medically), you’re free to use it. In fact, we’d like to hear about it as other members in our community may also be able to benefit.
That’s the power of being part of a community – saving money AND sharing knowledge and ideas.
Joining the Veterinary Buyers Group really is a no-brainer and if you’re an independent veterinary practice then you’ll definitely benefit from joining. We’re so convinced of this that we’re happy to offer you a 30 day FREE trial.
As a member you’ll have access to a range of marketing initiatives that have already been developed, trialled, tweaked and then implemented in veterinary practices. Once they have been proven successful, they are shared with the Veterinary Buyers Group community.
Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat – it’s almost impossible to keep up but a good presence on social media is now essential for a successful veterinary practice. As a VBG member you can take advantage of our social media resources including free banners for your Facebook Business Page as well as images and information you can post directly online.
eBooks are an excellent way to add value as well as educate your clients on important topics, however they can be time consuming and expensive to publish yourself. VBG has an ever expanding range of eBooks available to members that are professionally designed and written by Australian veterinarians and work brilliantly to communicate, educate and impress your clients. You’ll even receive tips and suggestions on how to best make use of these essential marketing tools.
Some of the topics include:
- Ear problems
- Weight Management
…and many more!
