MWI Animal Health Completes Integration with Shepherd Veterinary Software

Integration enables veterinary clinics utilizing Shepherd’s practice information management software access to MWI’s AllyDVM industry-leading communications, retention and analytics tools

MWI Animal Health, a provider of state-of-the-art technology solutions and services for veterinary practices, and part of Cencora (formerly AmerisourceBergen), today announced that Shepherd Veterinary Software, which offers a veterinary practice information management software (PIMS), is now fully and seamlessly integrated with MWI’s AllyDVM client engagement platform. Shepherd users can now take advantage of AllyDVM’s expansive service offerings including robust client communications, retention and analytics tools.

AllyDVM's integration with Shepherd, the nation’s fastest-growing cloud-based PIMS, is a significant step forward in MWI Animal Health’s commitment to ensuring veterinary practices have continuous access to the platforms that underpin their day-to-day operations.

“At Shepherd, we integrate with veterinary solutions that truly benefit our users,” said Shepherd’s VP of Growth, Conor Guptill. “AllyDVM is a terrific tool for veterinary practices to have in their wheelhouse. With this integration, practices can operate more smoothly, their clients feel more connected to the practice and the veterinary team can easily manage their operations with Shepherd’s user-friendly PIMS.”

“This agreement with Shepherd further shows our dedication to today’s veterinary practices,” said Courtney Carter, Vice President and Head of AllyDVM, MWI Animal Health. “Users will have the most sophisticated suite of software services in the veterinary industry to support improving patient outcomes and practice growth, as well as client satisfaction and retention.”

AllyDVM’s suite of cloud-based veterinary software services pull and enhance practice data from PIMS like Shepherds. Practices utilizing Shepherd's PIMS can now benefit from AllyDVM’s tools including its sleek, redesigned PetPage® Patient Portal mobile app, which streamlines vet and client communications while automatically writing back appointment confirmations into their Shepherd PIMS. This eliminates the need for practice owners and staff to make tedious manual confirmations.

“The software solutions offered by AllyDVM represent some of the most tangible and easily adoptable ways we partner with veterinary practices to increase client retention, engagement and compliance,” said Julia Loew, Senior Vice President of Commercialization Services at MWI Animal Health. “Through our partnership with Shepherd, 450 practices across the country can now integrate their system with AllyDVM and utilize their own data to improve daily operations and profitability.”

MWI Animal Health is committed to working with PIMS such as Shepherd that support veterinary practices’ ability to own and control their own data. The companies have a shared commitment to prioritize data privacy and relieve some of the burdens veterinary practices face as they serve the needs of a new generation of pet owners.
