Welcome to Shepherd!
Hello! We’re so excited to have you on board (and onboard, for that matter), and are keen to help get you and your practice up and running as quickly and easily as possible.
We know switching software comes with tons of challenges, but know that we’re here for you every step of the way—and that includes after we launch.
Shepherd was born out of frustration with existing veterinary software. We’ve combined stellar design with a robust feature set all with saving you (and everyone else in your practice) time and money.
We’re a team with several decades' worth of experience in the veterinary world, so we know what works for practices and what doesn't. If you ever need any help with anything, don’t hesitate to reach out.
