Into the “Smart Phone” Age!
We’re taking the leap into the age of the smart phone. Today’s pet owners are busy, mobile people, and we’re adding services to make that life-style a little easier on you and your pet.
First off, we’re pleased to be adding VetSource, our very own “on-line pharmacy”. Our concerns with other on-line pharmacies have been numerous, as so many of them have been investigated, charged, and prosecuted for breaking pharmacy law in many states. Our first concern is patient safety, and we aren’t willing to give up on that! VetSource is going to allow us to watch over the medications being dispensed for your pet, and that helps us help you!
We’re also adding a service called E-Pet Health. Through E-Pet Health, you can access certain parts of your pets information through a pet portal you establish. To do this, we have to have your e-mail address, so if we don’t have it, call us! Better yet, e-mail US at email@example.com! We’ll get your file updated with the e-mail address, and then you can log on to create your very own pet portal.
Once you have the pet portal, you can check vaccine status, when your pet last had lab work performed, what medications have been prescribed, etc. You can request prescription refills or an appointment time. You can even receive vaccine reminders via text message or e-mail, if you’d like!
We’re getting some wrinkles ironed out, but should have all of this up and running by Monday, May 18! Woohoo!
