Many of you are like me, you visit your Veterinarian more often than you are able to visit many family members!
We are blessed with a Vet who has allowed, and has patiently accepted many late night/weekend phone calls and frantic texts, often containing photos of allergy flare-ups, etc., etc. (Isn't it amazing that most of the time that we have to contact the Vet, it is a Friday night or other weekend day?)
Our vet has returned texts and phone calls when he was on vacation, on his day off and various other less-than-convenient times, and has never once acted as if I was imposing. If you have a Vet like that you are BLESSED!
Gifting your Veterinarian and their staff, can be expensive.
Our Veterinarian works with approx. 6 other doctors, a number of technicians, and a large front desk staff. Our Groomer is also affiliated with our vet, and there are a number of employees there as well.
How do you gift them all? Problem solved!
I thought of an easy, affordable and greatly appreciated way to thank your Vet and their staff on a budget!
I purchased a tin of popcorn from our local drug store and a beautiful Christmas cake from our local grocery store, (that is shaped as one series of beautiful CHOCOLATE Christmas trees dusted with powdered sugar!) I placed it all in a plastic gift bag from the Dollar Store and tied a cat toy (that Cody DOESN'T USE) around the top with ribbon to give it a festive feel! (One huge mistake, I had forgotten to take the price tag off of the cake, but oh well, it probably won't be noticed anyway!) The gift is delicious and large enough for all to share, our Vet puts it in their lunchroom where it can be enjoyed all day!
The gift on the bottom is a personal gift for our Vet himself. (That isn't a necessity for some, but for us it is, because in our world, our Vet is another cherished member of our "family".) We know our Vet quite well, and purchased a T-shirt featuring a player from one of his favorite sports teams.
So, if you haven't added your Veterinarian and their staff, to your list due to budgetary constraints, you can solve that problem with a little ingenuity and creativity!!!
Our Veterinarians give selflessly to all of US and our furbabies, that it is the LEAST we can do for THEM!!
