Petly is our pet patient portal. We offer it to you for free for each of your pets. It is a super nice service that you have access to 24/7.
Petly is easy to access. It requires a user name and a password. Your username is assigned when you give us your email. Yep that is right, it is your email address. The password is super simple too, you get an email saying here is your information to your Petly account within 24 hours of coming to see us. We also do our best to send our invites prior to your first visit. So always check your email prior to your visit to look for the invitation to Petly.
Does your doctor’s office offer a patient portal for you? Most human doctors have been offering patient portals for a few years now. So you might already be familiar with them.
Our Petly is pretty cool. You can have multiple pets under your name so you only have one account, one username and only one password. That really helps to keep it simple. Next you can upload a photo of your pet. It remindes me of a medical scrapbook. On the left hand side you can upload the photo of your pet and put a caption under their photo. Next to the photo lists your pets breed, the town you live in, your pet’s birthday (yes we send your pet birthday ecards!!!), and their most recent weight.
All of this is very helpful information. If you are tracking your pets’ weight with us you can see it at a glance. If you can’t remember when their birthday is…it is right here for you! This information can be changed very easily on our end of things if we ever need to make a correction please let us know.
If you have more than one pet there is tab that is to the left of the photo that says, “more pets” and you click on it to see your other pets information.
Under the photo section there are two columns. In the left column you will find “Pet Info”, this has topics that are trending in www.PetHealthNetwork.com . You can click on them and read the latest news OR you can go to what I like to call “Our Veterinary Doctor Google”. We have a search engine right here for you to look up information about your pet, about a friends pet, about your grand-puppy or grand-kitten. I love this feature because these are topics that are current and relevant as to what is going on right now in the pet healthcare industry. Also and more importantly the articles are written by veterinary health care professionals. Instead of just posting a subject on Facebook or Googling a topic and getting tons and tons of information back that can be stressful and overwhelming and even sometimes only antidotal. You can get helpful information with our search engine and just maybe be able to sleep at night or discover it is an emergency and you need to get to a 24 hours specialty care veterinary facility.
Next to this is right column is “A pet’s life” and that Pinable (yes we are on Pinterest too so please follow us there). It is again a current topic about a pet and maybe their specific health situation or sometimes it is a story about a general situation that can affect many of us and our pets. The key here is the article was written by a reputable and trusted veterinary healthcare professional.
On the right hand side of your pets medical scrap book, starting at the top of the page, their health. I have a dog named Porter so it says “Porter’s health”. This is where I look for his current vaccine information. It has scroll arrow to look for more information. It has a small square with a beaker and what looks like a lab report. You guessed it…it is where we send your pet’s lab information. If you came in for one of our advanced fecal screenings or bloodwork, that window would have a number in it of the items that are waiting for you to view. How cool is that?!?!
Understand small square is another small square asking “What’s next”. It will have something in like call for an appointment, what you pet is due for and when they are due, and more action type items.
Under that is “Now on Facebook” – yes we have a Facebook page. Please take a moment to like our page and follow us. We put fun photos, videos of us answering questions, lost and found, etc. It is really a must see it to believe it type of page that we are very active on.
Next to this are three blue post-it note looking boxes. They are all action items. Request and appointment – go ahead click on it. Give it a try!!!
Under that is Order a prescription. This will have previous prescriptions listed on it. So again feel free to click on it and take a look.
Under that one is Vaccination Records. This is super handy because you can print it out show it to a groomer or boarding facility and it proof your pet is up to date on vaccinations. It really is key to knowing where this is and how you can use. So again please click on it and take a look around.
Under all of this is our contact information, again a link to our Facebook page, a link to email us, a link to our website, and most importantly a link to Google+ so you Google+ review.
I really hope you take the time to check out your pets patient portal and tool around on it. Have fun…send us an email and let us know what you think about it.
