R&Co has a well-earned reputation for vet marketing. 

Our team understands that your objectives are unique to your business, that’s why our veterinary marketing services are tailored to your needs. 

We’ll consider every aspect in detail – whether that’s a need to increase your presence when a competitor has opened on your patch, drive recruitment via positive PR stories or emphasise your USPs in a crowded market.

We’ll work with you to create a bespoke plan to talk to the audience you want to reach, using the marketing channels they will see you on.

Proactive and reactive public relations

We’ll create conversations by proactively sharing stories with the media about your veterinary business – case studies, investment in equipment and buildings, charity work and new appointments are all excellent ways of building valuable third-party endorsement. 

Where appropriate, we’ll also use our PR services to position you as thought leaders in your field. We’ll look at opportunities to provide commentary and insight for trending news topics on a regional, national and sector basis, always considering the sensitivities at play in the veterinary industry.
