Frequently Asked Questions

Will you share or sell my client and patient data?
No. VIN’s pledge to you: Your data is yours. We will never sell your data or use it for marketing. You control the use of your data — to help you, your practice, and your patients, or to help advance veterinary medical knowledge.
How often will you sync my data?
Depending on the internet speed at your practice, we can sync your data as frequently as hourly, or nightly if needed. Updated data will display in your VetTools program shortly after your data has synced.
Is there a contract to use VetTools?
No contract. Start any time, end any time.
What is the installation process like?
After a brief setup appointment with you or a trusted staff member, it typically takes us 1-2 weeks to import and map your data. If you have a large database, we may ask you to copy it and send it to us on a hard drive provided by us. Once your data is imported and mapped, we will contact you to schedule a live online training session with you and your team members. After this, your VetTools service will be live!
Do you offer additional training?
Yes, we offer weekly open training sessions, typically mid-day. Anyone is welcome to attend, but if you can’t make it, we are happy to arrange additional private training sessions as needed for your practice.
I have not heard about you guys until recently, how long have you been around?
