Pet Portal

In keeping with our commitment to provide excellent patient care we have teamed up with ePetHealth to offer you online access to your pet's medical information.  

Please note that you will not be able to access your pet portal until your pet has had an appointment at our clinic. Here are a few additional benefits:

  • Pet Records: View your pet's medical information. Print out a "Pet ID Card" to carry with you when your pet is experiencing an emergency, traveling, boarding, or just taking training classes. Upload a photo of your pet for the ID Card.
  • Articles: View articles of common pet diseases.
  • Videos: Watch videos of common pet diseases, as well as instructional videos on how to care for your pet.
  • Breeds: Check out the different dog and cat breeds. Find out the history, personality, and other characteristics of each breed.
  • Interactive Animal: Learn about the different body systems of dogs and cats.
  • Clinic: Contact the clinic via ePetHealth, even after hours, for appointment requests, medication refill requests, or to ask a general question. We will be notified immediately of your request. Imagine how much time this can save you!
  • Alerts: Allows you to better manage your pet's important medication doses by setting up email alerts. These alerts will signal it is time for your pet's next dose and how many are remaining.
  • Survey: Fill out an online survey and let us know how we are doing!
  • Updater: Update any contact information as well as your pet's birthday, and we will be notified immediately of these changes.
  • Reminders: An email reminder will be sent to you 30 days prior to any upcoming vaccines and/or examinations due dates. Your pet's health and care is important to us, which is why we want your pet to stay current with examinations and preventative care.

Once your pet has had an appointment with us, an ePetHealth e-mail with first time login instructions will be sent to you, allowing you to access the above features. After receiving your e-mail, you can visit ePetHealth.com and set-up your profile
