Vets



WHY SAGE VETS? 
Every vet cares about pets; why else would they do what they do? Every vet considers their service ‘premium’ or ’high quality’; they are good people, and they always want to do the best they can. Why then do all vets seem to try and differentiate themselves from each other in this way on their websites, and if we are all the same, why would you choose Sage Vets?

Because at different times customers are disappointed by their vets, and it is fairly common for them to feel that their vets were uncaring, or lacking genuine empathy. Our experience tells us that the problem is that too many vets are delivering premium service - as defined by themselves, not by their customers.

Our goal is to solve the customer’s problem, which is not only  a sick pet - but also the associated anxiety and worry. Helping the pet is only the means to achieving this end goal (of a happy customer and a healthy pet). If we are preoccupied with the ‘medical puzzle’ of the pet’s ailment, we overlook the feelings of the client. Remember, feelings are driven by emotion and not logic. What is logical to a technically competent vet, might be upsetting to an anxious customer.  

At Sage Vets we have a great big bunch of vets and nurses who all keen to care for pets, and provide a top quality service, but what makes us different is that the service we want to deliver is the service that the customer wants for their pet, not the service that we want for their pet.

That means our job is not to do the cheapest thing we can think of, or - in contrast -  slavishly follow the protocols dictated to us at university regardless of cost. Our job is to provide each customer with enough information for them to make a choice that suits both them and their pet. Our job is to support them through tough decisions, to respect their values, and then to act in their interests.
