Without proper veterinary software in place, streamlining your clinic may never become a reality. Why is this important? Veterinary clinics have the unique challenge of having to perform several different types of appointments a day, from dental cleanings to surgery to euthanasia. Plus, scheduling, reminding, and confirming appointments with clients can be very time-consuming. This can wear on veterinary staff VERY quickly – but with the help of the right veterinary software, they can get through the day in a breeze.

PetDesk’s comprehensive veterinary client communication software can automate specific tasks and give time back to your staff. It can even offer technological benefits to your clients that not only empower them when it comes to scheduling but also keep them on top of their pet’s health consistently. 

PetDesk’s veterinary software can help your clinic streamline appointment scheduling by offering the following:

A Veterinary Mobile App

With PetDesk’s veterinary mobile app, clients can manage their pet’s health in the palm of their hand, and clinics have a direct line to communicate and engage with their clients. Give time back to your staff by allowing clients to access their pet’s medical records and lab results, request appointments and medication refills, receive automated reminders about services their pets are due for, get notified when their pet is ready to be picked up, and purchase pet insurance all through the app.

Veterinary Appointment Requests

Reduce call volume and save staff time by allowing pet owners to request appointments in the time blocks your staff chooses via the PetDesk mobile app or your veterinary website. PetDesk works with your existing PIMS and organizes your daily appointments in one easy-to-use dashboard. Plus, we provide your team the flexibility to approve appointments, suggest alternative times, and even confirm daily appointments with just a few clicks.

A Real-time Online Veterinary Booking Tool
