Our Membership Site Gives You Access To Webinars From Experts In All Fields Of Veterinary Practice

Dear Colleague, Do you realise a day of CPD costs between £300-£400?… and that’s without counting the lost revenue in the practice (~£300-400) when you’re away, plus the locum fee (~£250)! Fuel is also sky-rocketing in price — let me ask you, “How much did it cost you when you last filled up your car?” Add all this up, and a day of CPD will cost you around £1000, and you will need 5 such days to fulfil your obligation — a mind-blowing £5000 in total! I know from my own experiences how costly and stressful keeping up with your CPD can be… Running a small animal practice is a tiring job, and as a practicing Vet with over 20 years’ experience, I was sick of going to evening CPD meetings after a long day at the Surgery.

  • Most of the courses were 30 to 60 minutes away from my Practice. I’d arrive at the meeting, eat a few sandwiches and try to get something useful out of the lecture without falling asleep!
  • Then I’d chat to colleagues for about half an hour before doing the return journey and fall in to bed exhausted, only to be up early again the next morning.
  • I was STRUGGLING to do the 35 hours necessary for the practice standards and RESENTING the fact it would take me 3 hours total time (including travelling) to gain 1 hour’s CPD… In fact I was heartily SICK of it!

You know how it feels… So let me ask YOU a question…

“How great would it be if you could do all the CPD in the comfort of your own home?”

1 hour of CPD would take 1 hour to acquire

That dream is now a reality! You see, last year I decided to find a solution to all the travelling, time and expense I was expending on CPD hours… I research and studied new methods of internet communication — and discovered webinars… I really saw the potential in this method of communication — you could say my eyes literally opened!

Let me introduce you to The Webinar Vet

I’m sure you’re familiar with webinars, but let me just explain the format… A webinar is a lecture given over the internet by an expert presenter, using a Powerpoint presentation, so you’re not following an on-line course, but hearing a live interactive lecture, and participating via instant polls and surveys. The webinars are all given at a very practical level so that each vet can take away 2-3 things which they will do differently in their practice. It makes learning so much easier, and more fun!

  • No travelling to and from a venue and getting home late
  • No expenses for fuel, food or entertaining
  • No time wasted out of your Practice
  • No need for a Locum to cover your absence
  • No stress!

I presented the first webinar in early March 2010, on pruritus in dogs and cats, and since then we’ve given over 100 webinars featuring experts on varied subjects such as…

  • Diabetes
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Radiography
  • Corneal disease
  • Practice management
  • Interpretation of ECG

In fact, Since March 2010, I have probably attended nearly 100 hours CPD and I’m really enjoying it — all of this CPD makes me a better vet! The live webinar on a Thursday night takes all the stress out of learning making it a very pleasurable experience. Several hundreds have attended single webinars and our feedback from vets and nurses confirm they love the experience!

Here’s what vets have been saying about “The Webinar Vet”

Thank you for “The Webinar Vet”! A breath of fresh air. Having returned from my 360 mile round trip to a days CPD, complete with hotel bill, £80.00 for diesel, course fee, day off work, six points for very minor speeding offences (which went un-noticed at the time) £120.00 fines, not to mention the hike in insurance premium, I was ready for a couple of glasses of wine. Lucky I didn’t have them at the time! Every cloud has a silver lining, so along came the Webinar Vet, couldn’t have come at a better time for me.

  • Convenient — watch them live, or later if you need to do something else.
  • Cost effective — a year’s subscription for four vets in the practice came to less than my one fateful day. (Have your glass of wine, can’t get nicked in front of the computer!)
  • Variety — we’ve had medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, management, the list goes on.

Maybe not a complete substitute for those nice days away, and the need for hands on, but a very worthy addition. We have certainly clocked up a lot more CPD hours in our practice since it began. Many Thanks, hope it goes from strength to strength. John Stitt, Alexander Vet Centre, Barrow-in-Furness

The instant availability and access to the webinars make your life so much easier, and slotting one night a week into your busy schedule takes far less time than trying to juggle all the other commitments you have along with yet another journey to and from a CPD lecture!

Here’s what you get from membership of The Webinar Vet

Now, you’re probably wondering just how much we’re asking for such a comprehensive and up-to-date membership site… The table below shows the value of membership if you were to watch a live or recorded webinar once a week and listen to one CD recording monthly in your car (sent as part of membership) and read our monthly newsletter.

Hours Cost
Live Webinars 35 £1225
Monthly CD 12 £240
Newsletter 5 £60
Archived Webinars 15 £575
Total 67 £2100
  • 67 hours of CPD is nearly twice our requirement but can be accomplished in an effortless way compared with the old style of trekking to meetings on crowded roads with high levels of stress and wasted hours in the car.
  • Now even your wasted hours in the car can be more usefully used listening to one of our CD recordings.
  • £2100 is less than half the price of acquiring your CPD via a more traditional route.

I’m sure you’ll agree the figures above would suggest that £150 a month would be reasonable. However, the fee for joining our membership site will be a modest £147 plus VAT per month for an individual platinum membership. You can pay via credit card using our secure payment processor — just click below! [pricebox]

Monthly Membership — £147 per month
