How can we help you care for more pets?

When you sign up to the FREE 7 day trial of our virtual phone service, you will be allocated a unique phone number in a city of your choice. This is the number that we know your vet business by. You can choose to use this allocated phone number as your company number or if you are established and have your own number, simply call forward your existing phone number to your Virtual Headquarters number and we will be answering your calls. Regardless of whether you are based in a major Australian CBD (such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hobart, Adelaide or Perth), or located in a smaller town or rural area, we will ensure that your image as the best veterinary clinic in town is one that elicits professionalism and success. Some of our 7000+ clients may choose to have multiple numbers across many states of Australia, making it seem as if their small business is much larger than it really is. While our experience tells us that vets as a rule are more localized, the same concept applies if you have a number of clinics across a specific geography.

We understand that there can be many different types of requests to a veterinary practice, ranging from the most crucial emergencies, to routine calls about appointment scheduling, vaccinations and payment. We can respond to these in any way you choose – our veterinary answering service scripts are 100% customisable and all answering options are built around you. Whether you are a veterinary hospital or clinic, you simply need to give us some information about your specific services and staff and any precise instructions so that our telephone representatives can give pet-owners peace of mind. We can determine animal type, book appointments, for yearly exams, vaccinations and inform your clients about various medication. Our professional, informed and friendly veterinary answering service receptionists can screen calls based on urgency, making sure that your on call veterinarian isn’t needlessly disturbed. We can contact the right staff members in each individual situation such as emergency on call vet home visit dispatch, efficiently connecting clients to the help they need. After each call, the receptionist sends detailed notes from the conversation to you though email, SMS or both. Our receptionists will integrate seamlessly into your veterinary clinic’s workflow – making your life easier. Your employees won’t be slowed down by taking calls, and will have more time to care for the precious 4-legged friends, while you gain the benefit of a live answering service that will improve customer service.

A 24/7 service that every family pet wants to come and visit!

Animals play an important role in the lives of your clients. Veterinary office managers will appreciate having more time to work on the business instead of in it. We can imagine that it’s not uncommon for your clinic to be filled with many animals, some for regular check-ups and others with emergencies. As pet owners ourselves, we know they are also unpredictable. This means that your customers may need assistance outside of 9-5 regular business hours. If you are interested in maintaining a seamless and positive image all hours of the day, then why not consider our 24/7 after hour’s service? Virtual Headquarters is the leading veterinary answering service for veterinarians and we are committed to providing a reliable and professional telephone answering service 24x7, 365 days of the year. We know that when a client’s beloved pet is sick or injured, owners can be demanding, especially after hours. Let us reduce stress levels, so that both clients and pets are feeling valued and cared for. We let you focus on building a solid business foundation and providing a premium animal healthcare service while your live answering service will answer calls promptly and professionally after hours. Maximizing caller experience and improving workflow has never been so easy!
