  • Q. How is different than other Vet directories?

    A. Glad you asked. VetLocator was created out of frustration at what pet resources were available to pet owner using the web. We designed to be different than other directories.

  • 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' search tab.

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.
