Vetcove has now begun to integrate with select PIMS to help practices track and order inventory with ease, all in one location. By connecting your Vetport Pronghorn account to Vetcove, you will be able to:

  • Manage Lists – shop your PIMS lists directly on Vetcove

  • View Quantities – view your quantity on hand and reorder points

  • Sync Purchase Orders – purchase orders will automatically be synced

At this time, the integration only supports Vetport Pronghorn, not Vetport Legacy.

Step 1: Connecting with Vetport

To connect your Vetport account with Vetcove, head to the header bar and click on Orders > Inventory > and select "PIMS Integration". On this Connect page, you will see the option to select Vetport. Please click on the box for Vetport and scroll down to view your linking instructions:

  1. Log into Vetport using your clinic's unique Vetport login URL (for example

  2. Once in Vetport, click on Marketplace on the left side

  3. Scroll down to Vetcove and click on the green "FREE" button

  4. You'll then be taken to a page showing Description, How to Install?, and Configuration Details tabs across the top. Click on the Configuration Details tab

  5. Locate your practice within the list and click on Integrate

  6. You'll then be prompted with a window asking you to "Authorize Vetport with Vetcove?" Click on "Continue as (name)"

  7. You'll then see a green box pop up in the top right corner with a success message

Congratulations! Your Vetport account should now be connected to Vetcove!

Step 2: Connect Vetport Items to Vetcove Items

Once you are successfully connected with Vetport on Vetcove, you will see the following message:

Please click on Manage Connection to continue to initial setup process. You will now see two additional options at the top of your Vetcove PIMS Integration page: Lists and Products.

To ensure that your PIMS lists and product quantities are pulled into Vetcove, and to be able to shop items from your Vetport lists, you will need to link your Vetport products to Vetcove products. This will only need to be done one time around, but can be updated at any point.

Simply click on the Products tab at the top of your page, and click into each item that does not show a green check mark. You may also select the filter for unlinked items from the menu on the left side of this page to view all items that still need to be linked:

When you click on a given item, you will be prompted to search and then select the Vetcove item/s in the left column that you wish to link to the Vetport item listed at the top of the window. Keep in mind that a given Vetcove item can only be linked to a single Vetport item:

Unit of Measurement

When linking items, you will often also have the ability to select a unit of measurement. Selecting a unit of measurement will help ensure the quantities for each item in a given purchase order are translated properly from Vetcove to your PIMS for receiving.

In the example below, you will see that you have the option to select whether you would like the item, Convenia Injectable: 10ml, to be received in your PIMS as 1 vial or as 10mL. If you receive and track the item in your PIMS per vial, you would select vial – if you receive and track the item in your PIMS per mL, you would select mL:

You may edit and update item unit of measurements at any time. Please note that if you do not select a unit of measurement, the default unit for that item listing on Vetcove will be selected. If you do not see your preferred unit of measurement listed as an option, please reach out to the Vetcove support team via the live chat in the lower right corner and we would be happy to assist!

Hiding Items

You may also hide any unlinked items within you PIMS integration that you would not like to appear in your lists.

To hide an unlinked Item, click on the Actions button, located to the right of each item, and select "Hide this Item." This will hide the item from view and move it to a Hidden Items folder, located on the lefthand side of the page. This will prevent the item from showing up in your Critical Shortage Lists, as well.

From within the Hidden Items folder, you may move a hidden item back into view with the rest of your items. Simply click on the Action button, and select "Show this item."

Step 3: Shop on Vetcove through your Vetport Lists

Once all relevant Vetport items have been linked to their corresponding Vetcove items, you may view and shop items straight from the Lists page based on reorder points. To shop an item that is included in a Vetport list (Ex. Critical Shortages list) just click on the Show _ Items button.

The item listings will then drop down in the familiar Vetcove shopping format. Using the purchase quantity suggested (based on the optimal quantity entered on Vetport for that item) you may then add items to your vendor carts straight from here, just as normal!

Step 4: Shop and Place Orders as Normal

Now, when you place an order on Vetcove it will automatically be sent as a PO to Vetport! Do keep in mind that your Vetport inventory will automatically be synced to Vetcove roughly every 6 hours; however, you may always trigger a manual sync from either the Lists or Products tabs on the Vetcove PIMS page to bring in the latest inventory counts before shopping.
