Not Your Average Animal Hospital

In order to learn more about this one-of-a-kind business and its impressive online reputation, we took a few minutes to talk with Rhonda Ritter, Practice Manager/Technician at Safe Harbor Animal Hospital.

The first question we had for Rhonda was what sets Safe Harbor Animal Hospital apart from their competition in Michigan. Here’s her response:

“We explain the why. If you don’t help the clients understand why we do this, they won’t understand how necessary the follow-through is. We want to keep the animals in their homes. We also want to give the owners all of their options, so that they can make the best decision for their animal. We also do a lot of following up. We continue to provide care as best we can, even after the animal has left the hospital. All of our staff are Fear Free Veterinary certified, too!”

Rhonda went on to add:

“We have a lot of people that will come to us with difficult animals, and we are able to provide veterinary care to even the most difficult cases!”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Safe Harbor Animal Hospital and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Rhonda had to say:

“[Our mission is] to provide quality medical care in a unique, compassionate, friendly atmosphere. We understand that there are limits to what people can do, so we want to make sure that our clients know their options and help them in any way we can.”

“Occasionally, we ask for reviews. I can set programs and parameters to send a text message or email to ask for a review.”

When asked how Safe Harbor Animal Hospital has grown outside of building a powerful online reputation, Rhonda said:

“We love to draw in new clients, but we have to take care of the clients we have, too. They, in turn, will send us referrals. A lot of what we do right now is word of mouth. I do marketing through Demandforce and through email communication. I have hired someone to do marketing for us, and we’re going to be moving forward with some of that on a bigger platform. I’m trying to get people back to our website, so we’re working on updating that.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Rhonda’s expert advice for those business owners:

“My number one priority is to invest in your staff! You need internal collaboration, and you need to treat your employees well. We like each other and work well together! The clients feel that when they come in, and they never leave.”
