Doctors Foster and Smith is the #1 catalog and online seller of pet supplies and pharmaceuticals in the industry. Doctors Foster and Smith is known for empowering pet owners by providing extensive veterinarian-supported advice, proprietary information and quality pet products, serving millions of pet owners from coast to coast. Dr. Race Foster and Dr. Marty Smith have become the nation’s foremost authorities on pet care and owner education, earning an unmatched reputation for the scope of their veterinary expertise on dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles, pond life, small animals and horses.
Based in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, Doctors Foster and Smith offers more than 16,000 items to shoppers online and in specialized catalogs. Dogs, Cats, Birds, Small Pets, Ferrets, Aquariums, Ponds & more! Along with colorful photography and product descriptions, each catalog contains articles that deal with everything from feline boredom and canine nutrition to algae prevention and exercise tips for birds.
It was 1983 when Dr. Marty Smith, Dr. Race Foster and Dr. Rory Foster — all trained and practicing veterinarians — ventured into the catalog business. Marty had been in business with Rory since 1980 operating five very successful Doctors Foster and Smith animal clinics in northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula when advances in veterinary science created vaccines that greatly improved the health prospects for dogs and cats. The vaccinations, however, were very expensive for kennel owners or those caring for multiple pets because most veterinarians insisted animals be brought to clinics for the inoculations — meaning pet owners had to purchase the vaccines at retail prices and pay for veterinary services at the same time. Marty, Rory and Race had the innovative idea to purchase the vaccinations in bulk and offer quality, discounted medications to multi-animal owners. The doctors also advised the owners about administering the vaccines on their own. This made the pharmaceuticals much more cost effective and local kennel owners responded avidly to the new service. Having recognized an emerging market need, the doctors poured through numerous trade journals and gathered mailing addresses for kennels and breeders across the nation. The trio then prepared the first Doctors Foster and Smith catalog, a 16-page digest that offered discounted vaccines and essential pet care tips, and sent the catalogs to 16,000 addresses. This was the start of the Doctors Foster and Smith catalog company, which now prints 58 million catalogs annually.
The doctors started distributing vaccines by mail from a 12-by-12-foot storeroom attached to one of their animal clinics. Family, friends and coworkers chipped in to fill orders. Rory, diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 1984, left day-to-day operations in the hands of Race and Marty. Instead, Rory spent his time creating the veterinary articles for the monthly catalogs until 1987, when he passed on due to complications from the disease. It was in the mid-80s that the company took off exponentially.
Supplying helpful information on animal care to pet owners was a cornerstone of the company’s success and remains a core value of Doctors Foster and Smith. The company is renowned for empowering pet owners by providing extensive veterinary advice, proprietary information and quality products. Further, Dr. Foster and Dr. Smith have become the nation’s foremost authorities on pet care and education, earning an unmatched reputation for the scope of their veterinary expertise on dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles, pond life, small animals, coral and equine. The Doctors Foster and Smith professional staff now includes a full range of veterinarians, pharmacists and aquatic specialists who have authored more the 3,000 articles and provide informative advice via the web and toll-free 800 numbers. The doctors have also co-authored books on pet health, care, and behavior; and have a special interest in consulting and working with professional dog and cat breeders, especially in the area of preventive animal health. As the catalog business grew, so did Doctors Foster and Smith.
In 1985, the company constructed a 16,000 square-foot facility specifically to handle incoming orders. As a result, the doctors had to hire more and more people from the Rhinelander region to take orders and get shipments out in a timely manner. After 30 years of business, almost 95 percent of the nearly 600-person workforce still consists of individuals born and raised in the Rhinelander region.
It was the 1990s when Doctors Foster and Smith experienced monumental growth, and the doctors decided to sell their animal clinics to focus fully on the catalog business. In 1991, 24-hour operator service was initiated to take calls seven days a week. A year later, Doctors Foster and Smith built the facility where they currently conduct business and it has grown to become a 293,000-square-foot operation with an 18,000-square-foot call center.
The call center has long been the lifeblood of Doctors Foster and Smith, a way to personally connect with much of the customer base. Over the years, Doctors Foster and Smith have worked diligently to develop and maintain a reputation for providing world-class customer service currently handled by 230 phone representatives. Each representative spends as much as four minutes with a customer to enter just one order, and frequently answers pet care concerns from callers. To help representatives provide correct information, call center employees receive extensive training to assist in locating detailed information on pet issues from a large in-house library. On average, those people working as representatives receive about 14 days of training so they can properly guide animal lovers. Great pet care advice has always aided growth. Because customers trust the company, they return again and again to avail themselves of services .Orders are tracked through an incredible, state-of-the-art system that includes the processing, packaging and shipping of orders. Today a customer is guaranteed that product will be shipped within 12 hours of the order being placed, partially due to the fact that 95 percent of items are in stock at any given moment.
Reliable advice is not the only thing that retains customers. Quality products, too, have been a hallmark of Doctors Foster and Smith. The company is the leading retailer in almost a dozen categories covering everything from dog and cat furniture and bird feeders to small animal pet foods, aquariums environments, pond supplies, nutritional supplements and pet prescriptions. Each year, Dr. Foster and Dr. Smith personally review more than 2,500 new products, selecting only those of the highest quality that enhance pet health and well-being. The company also canvasses its loyal customer base each month, inquiring about customer opinions on and desire for 10 to 20 new products, thus keeping product offerings fresh. When a product simply does not exist, the doctors develop Doctors Foster and Smith-branded items that are veterinarian-formulated and recommended. It was 1993 when the first such branded products, pet vitamins and nutritional supplements, were launched with great success. As the product selection grew, the Doctors Foster and Smith brand became synonymous with superior quality and excellent value. Today, the doctors’ products include pet food, dog beds and cat furniture; as well as pet treats and joint care supplements that the doctors are both very proud to have created.
The next monumental moment for Doctors Foster and Smith occurred in 1998 when the company took its catalog on to the World Wide Web. Simultaneously, our website was launched along with an information & education site. Again relying on the fact that the company is operated by two licensed veterinarians, both websites were filled with helpful articles that Internet users could call upon at all hours of the day or night. And as could be predicted, the company experienced great growth due to the increased popularity of online shopping. In fact, the information & education site is even accessed by some universities as a research resource for students and faculty.
Measured growth and sensible business decisions are what Dr. Smith and Dr. Foster attribute to success. They focus on the wants and needs of customers. When it comes to making customers happy, the steps are simple: Help customers make informed decisions, give them what they want in the form of quality products, provide a huge selection, offer goods at a sensible price, and make the customer happy at all costs. The doctors also have an enlightened view of business management that can be boiled down to two words: Be nice. Be nice to employees and empower them to make decisions. Let them know that it’s all right to make mistakes, as long as growth comes from the errors, and never lay blame. And with growth comes advancement, which explains why so many of the Doctors Foster and Smith staff have been with the company for many years — in some instances cases rising from clerical staff to overseeing in-house departments.
As part of its measured growth and response to supplying what customers seek, Doctors Foster and Smith has increased its product offerings over the years by acquiring other companies. In 2001, Pet Warehouse and their live fish & Coral division were purchased and moved Doctors Foster and Smith into the aquarium business. In 2002, bird supply cataloger Hornbeck’s was acquired, along with another live aquatic merchant. The following year Flying Fish Express was bought, making Doctors Foster and Smith one of the primary suppliers of aquatic animals in the country.
In-house growth has also been occurring organically. A fully-licensed pharmacy was created in 2003 that is now authorized to distribute pharmaceuticals in all 50 states. Additionally, a cutting-edge aquaculture coral facility was established to provide the growing coral enthusiast market with live coral not harvested from endangered reefs. And in 2007, the company expanded its product offerings to include a comprehensive line of horse supplies and equine equipment, and the nation’s foremost catalog serving ferret owners. Dr. Smith and Dr. Foster, as well as the entire staff at Doctors Foster and Smith, take great pride in having helped generations of companion animals live healthier, happier lives by providing expert advice and affordable supplies to their owners, ensuring that each animal receives the best possible care. While nobody can wholly predict the future success and growth of any business, the track record at Doctor Foster and Smith is such that it is bound to remain a favorite amongst animal lovers. And it’s a safe bet that the company’s values and principles, as an organization founded by veterinarians, will always remain at the core.
