Hi. Welcome to Shepherd.

We're glad you're here!

Why Shepherd?

Our founder Cindy Barnes, DVM designed Shepherd from the ground up for one purpose: to bring vets joy. In the midst of euthanasias, dewormings, and pulling unspeakable things from everywhere imaginable (and sometimes unimaginable), the last thing you want is software that’s working against you.

So, we designed Shepherd to bring you joy by saving your:

  • Time: eliminate redundant tasks like discharge instructions, reminders, and invoices—it’s all done with one click

  • Money: add a treatment to the record and it’ll be in your invoice; no more missed charges

  • Sanity: make accurate records and invoices right the first time—and if you need help, we’ve been there and are happy to chat

Take Shepherd for A Spin

We'd recommend using our checklist that takes you through Shepherd's core functionality. You'll go through everything from scheduling a patient to checking a client out with a completed invoice.

This checklist will automatically show up if you're logging into your Shepherd demo account, as well. And don't worry if you need to break up your training. It'll stay in Shepherd until you've completed everything.


Explore the Help Center

If you want to take a look articles we've written for specific features within the different sections of Shepherd, we’d encourage you to explore them.

Each section has its own series of articles, interactive walkthroughs, and videos that show you the ropes of Shepherd. It's all designed to be as bite-sized as possible.

You can always access our help center at help.shepherd.vet.
