Shepherd works the way you do
(because it was built by vets like you)
Traditional veterinary practice management software creates unnecessary complexity, friction, and burdens.
Shepherd streamlines vet practice management — giving you more time, more fulfilled teams, and more opportunity to provide the best care.
Administering treatments automatically adds them to an invoice—and attaches any discharge instructions.
Easy to use
With an intuitive (and, dare we say, beautiful) interface, you'll get the hang of Shepherd on day one—and love it every day after.
Shepherd is like having an additional team member (or 10) that help you provide the best care—so you can stop taking paperwork home each night.
Shepherd's not just beautiful—it's built to function the way you work and how you process patients through a visit.
Instantly track inventory with each product administration and effortlessly order new supplies.
Generate reports for everything—from accounting to vaccinations—to access the complete picture of your practice any time, anywhere.
Input patient information once and it autofills everywhere else it needs—including capturing all charges. If your medical record is accurate, your invoice is automatically accurate.
Small errors impact the bottom line
Studies show veterinary practices lose as much as $60,000 in revenue per year per full-time doctor due to missed charges for simple add-ons and procedures. That's money you earned—and it's getting lost.

With Shepherd, you automatically capture all charges. If it's on the medical record, it's on the invoice. Not a single item is missed—turning losses into savings.
What we believe
Because Shepherd was born of the belief that vets deserve joy, it was designed to work the way vets work—and built to make that work a little easier.

Because of the amount of time Shepherd saves me doing my medical records, I now have time to stop by and see my granddaughter on my way home from work.

The onboarding process for Shepherd was seamless. We have been 100% on paper for over 40 years, and Kate helped break up the overwhelming thought of transitioning into phases which helped ease everyone's mind. I can not recommend Shepherd enough to anyone in the veterinary industry.
