Read about the highest-earning vets on TikTok.
Veterinary practitioners could earn just under €1,500 per TikTok post.
Money.co.uk commissioned a study to determine how much TikTok vets could earn per clip on the video-focused social networking platform.
Dr Hunter Finn (@dr.hunterfinn) tops the list after going viral last year for sharing his pet health advice with the world.
Dr Finn’s most commonly viewed advice includes:
- Staying away from particular products such as (some) jerky treats, which have been linked to urinary tract disease
- Being careful with bones – although these treats may last a long time, they can break teeth, cause perforations and gastrointestinal upsets if swallowed. This is the same for rawhides, which can also be difficult for our pets to swallow and digest.
Second, on the list is Jessica Thomspon (@theswiftiekittens). According to the study, she could earn around €1,272 per TikTok post.
Most of her videos showcase a combination of various surgical veterinary procedures.
Following in third is Dr Adam Christman (@dr.adamchristman52), who could earn around €449 for each clip on the video-sharing platform.
Dr Christman mostly shares advice relating to pet health tips, along with product dos and don’ts for your pets.
Dr Christman’s most commonly viewed advice includes:
The best place to massage your dog:
- Place your two index fingers on the outside of their shoulders (deltoid muscles);
- Massage in a circular motion while gently pressing your thumbs into their chest muscles (pectoralis muscles) and massaging in a circular motion.
Three tips for better dog parenting:
- Elevate dishes – which can help minimise aerophagia, bloat and prevent food spillages
- Dog ramps – as dogs get older, they may need a bit more assistance, regardless of the size of the dog
- Towel dry and avoid the shaking by gently holding their snout as you dry them off (not applicable to brachycephalic dogs such as Pugs and French Bulldogs).
Highest-earning vets on TikTok
In fourth place is Dr Shawna Huston (@dogtor_huston), with the potential to earn €294/video, while Dr Matt McGlasson (@dr.mattmcglasson), according to the data, could pocket €272/video.
The sixth TokToking vet on the list is Catherine Henstridge (@cat_the_vet), who could bank €197/video, while Dr Angelo Martin Vargas’ (@docgelotv) payment per video is in the region of €135.
Dr Trent Shrader (@drtrentshrader) could earn €133/video, while Dr Andrew Jones, who posts using the @veterinarysecrets handle, could bring in €109.
Rounding off the top 10 is Dr Lindsay Butzer (@dr_lindsaybutzer), who could earn roughly €79 per TikTok video.
Dr Lindsay Butzer not only shares the cutest dog breeds but also advises viewers on how to take care of pets with particular conditions while answering the most asked questions.
Dr Butzer’s most recent advice includes:
- Car sickness: Firstly, with the festive season fast approaching, your dogs may be required to go on long car drives. For car sickness, there are anti-nausea medications available for them to take. (Seek your vet’s advice for the appropriate one for your dogs)
- Don’t feed them human food: These often contain ingredients that are highly toxic for pets. A few examples include chocolate, macadamia nuts, grapes, onions, and garlic. Processed food also contains ingredients that are very harmful when consumed.
Salman Haqqi, a pet insurance expert at money.co.uk, said:
“Being a pet owner can have its daunting moments, especially when it comes to their health and safety. And with pet ownership increasing during the pandemic, there are likely many of us who have welcomed a furry family member into our homes.
“TikTok videos can be a great place to start research on how to look after your pet. However, it is imperative that you seek your vet’s professional advice before changing their day-to-day routine, food or exercise regime.”
