Have questions about being listed on VetLocator's Pet Professionals Directory? Read On!
VetLocator is unlike any other directory on the web. It was designed to be very fast and simple to use, providing pet owners with easy access to the services and information they are looking for. As a result, it is the fastest growing pet professional directory online today!
Q. How is VetLocator.com different than other
A. Glad you asked. VetLocator was created out
of frustration at what pet resources were available
to pet owner using the web. We designed VetLocator.com
to be different than other directories. You will find
when you use VetLocator.com, that it is extremely
user friendly for both pet owners and pet professionals..
Plus we offer ALL pet professionals a free listing
in our directory. As a result we are becoming the
fastest growing pet services directory on the web.
Q. Do you have to be a Veterinarian to be included
in the directory?
A. No, but you do need to be a pet professional.
Our site works this way: Our Vet Quick Search and
Advanced Search return ONLY Veterinarians that meet
the search criteria entered. To have your listing
show up in those searches, you must have a degree
as a veterinarian. Our 'Holistic and Alternative'
search returns both Veterinarians and other pet professionals
whose services fall under those categories. If the
pet professional holds a degree or a certification,
it is indicated in the directory listing, Chiropractors
would be listed under 'Holistic and Alternative' searches.
Other pet professionals including trainers, pet sitters,
and kennels are located under the 'Other Pet Professionals'
Q. I have not registered, yet I see a listing

Q. How do people find VetLocator.com?
A. Besides being found on search engines everywhere, VetLocator.com participates in
several advertising campaigns with results appearing on Google, MSN, Yahoo, AOL and many others.
We also have pet sites world wide linking to us to provide their members with our superior Pet Professionals
Q. I have more than 1 practice location. Do I
have to register for each location?
A. Yes, you will need to register each location
separately. The primary way to locate pet professionals
on VetLocator is by zip code so each location should
have a separate listing.
Q. How do I list more than one doctor for my practice?
A. When you register your practice, you will
see a section for other doctors or professionals who
work with your practice. You would click on that link
to fill out information for each additional pet professional.
We have limited 4 additional professionals per listing.
If you have more you would like to have displayed
with your listing, please contact us with your request.
Q. Is there really no charge for being in your
A. Yes there really is no charge for our free
listings. VetLocator has three types of listings in
its directory. Our free listing displays basic clinic
information including name, address and phone. Our
Silver listing displays more information about the
practice including specialties, location, phone and email.
It always appears before free listings.
Our Gold listing always appears before the other two
types of listings, and has all of the premium features
including enhanced reporting features, multiple images,
top of page listing and a separate banner ad that
appears in other locations within the website. To

categories, click HERE.
Q. My practice does not use the web much and we
only target customers in our neighborhood. Does
it still make sense to register?
A. The answer is yes, for many reasons. The
whole idea behind VetLocator is to allow pet owners
to find LOCAL pet professionals that fit their needs.
Even if your clinic or service does not do much with
the web, people looking for your service will be,
and your listing will have your address and phone
so they can contact you directly, and, if you've signed
up for an enhanced listing, they can easily see if
what you offer meets their needs.
Q. I see that some listings have testimonials
and they look great. How does that work?
A. Testimonials are a great addition to your
directory listing. This feature is included in our
premium directory listing package and is very easy
for both the pet owner and the clinic staff to use
when adding a new testimonial to their VetLocator.com
listing. To see what is included with each type of
directory listing on VetLocator.com, click HERE.
Q. I am not sure whether the services I provide
would be listed under Holistic and Alternative directory
or the Other Pet Professionals directory. What do
A. You do not need to worry about that. When
you sign up, our registration form guides you through
selecting which services you have available and we
have catagorized those to only come up under certain
searches. If you provide one of the services you can
indicate that and people looking for that service
can find you easily.
Q. Anything more I need to know?
A. We'd suggest signing up for at least one
of our newsletters, Vets-n-Pets-n-Stuff or Health
Tips For Pet Owners. They are both excellent and each
offers good information for pet owners. We are always
looking for contributing articles for the newsletters
and would be happy to supply you with our editorial
calendar for upcoming issues. For more information
