Pam Taylor CPA, Hospital Administrator, Taylor Veterinary Hospital (5 year user)
I looked at a lot of software before deciding to go with VetFM. I’d been very happy with our old software, but it was no longer supported and was falling behind in features we wanted, so it was time to switch. VetFM offered what I was looking for - great software under active development by passionate, responsive, experienced, professional database developers who love animals and are focused on delivering software that helps veterinary hospitals take care of the patients and the families who love them.

Judith McClure, DVM, Sandy Paws Animal Clinic
I am a sole small animal practitioner who opened a veterinary practice in southern California in 2010. I have worked on several windows based veterinary software programs while I worked as an emergency veterinarian at referral hospitals. Access to specialists medical records was often very important and a number of windows based programs crashed at inopportune times. I thought about this when I was choosing computers and software for my paperless practice. I chose to go with Mac computers because Macs can manage a large volume of information without crashing.
VetFM is the Mac based veterinary software program I chose because the program is very easy to understand and use. VetFM allows me to generate detailed medical records efficiently and it allows my accountant to generate the kind of reports that she and the bank loan administrators need. I recently had two experienced relief veterinarians in my practice and they both remarked on how easy it was to use VetFM with no previous exposure to the program.
VetFM support has been integral to the success of my practice. The support staff are available and very responsive to requests for help or clarification. After the initial training, very little support has been required. Purchasing this program is one of the best investments I have made in my hospital and the continuing support from VetFM reminds me of this every time I call them.
Erica Anderson, DVM, Uni Pet Clinic
My colleague and I spent several months researching and testing different veterinary software before deciding that VetFM would be the best fit for our small animal practice. We both love the stability of working with Macs, and the flexibility we have in using VetFM on our PCs as well - especially the option to link in from home! The interface is very user-friendly and intuitive: in fact now that we're familiar with the program we can get a new user comfortable with the system within a single afternoon! On the other hand, we've been using and training with VetFM for months, and occasionally the program still surprises us. There are so many features that have been missing in all the other software we've used, which VetFM has incorporated into the basic design. Most importantly, any time we have a question or a concern, no matter how wacky it may be, Eric and Susie are there to help and support us. We've never had to wait more than a day or two to get our problems resolved, and usually the turn-around time is just a few hours. As the owner and manager of a new hospital, the training time that Eric spent with us and the staff was invaluable. We will definitely be recommending VetFM to any new practice owners, or anyone who's dissatisfied with their current veterinary software, and we can't wait to see the new update!
Alan Hammer, DVM, North Coast Veterinary Specialist
VetFM is a user-friendly program as it is Mac computer based. Compared to other management programs, VetFM is the most flexible and able to adjust to each clinics needs. The staff are wonderful in working to enhance the program and are very enthusiastic. Support is great, not only with "crisis" situations but also in training, upgrades, and trouble-shooting. I recommended it to a colleague who was just starting out; unfortunately for her, she had already purchased another program. In conclusion, VetFM is a real gem that should be discovered by more veterinarians.
Linda Leadbetter, DVM. Leadbetter Small Animal Hospital
I have been using VetFM for several years now and can't say enough about the program and especially the support that I have received from both Eric
and Susie. They respond quickly to questions by phone or by e-mail and are always so pleasant and professional.
I had a prior program that I used for my Mac and lost the support for that program. I was lucky to be introduced to VetFM and have never regretted converting my old program to VetFM. Eric and Susie worked wonders in the turnover between the two programs and were and are there for me when I need them. Support is so important....
Yvonne Valenza, Receptionist, Companion Pet Hospital
I recently started working for a vet office as a receptionist, and I've really appreciated how easy VetFM is to use. I'm especially appreciative because this is my first job like this! Training through VetFM system makes the process easier to pick up and understand important tasks that receptionists need to take care of. It also seems to make communication between the receptionists and the vet techs/doctor about patient information pretty precise and avoids a lot of confusion. I also really love how VetFM's system can be virtually paperless! Everything from invoices, scheduling, and pet histories can be kept neat and organized in this great computerized system. I really like it!
Dr. Amy O'Malley, DVM, Warrenton Animal Clinic
VetFM is a great program that is very comprehensive, but easily accessible to all levels of computer users. In our mixed small and large animal rural veterinary clinic it has improved record keeping and also increased the professional appearance of our invoices. The compatibility of label makers, networked printers, and image uploading has also streamlined our clinic's flow. We would highly recommend VetFM for any clinic that is ready to take their practice to the next level!
