After you've connected your supplier accounts to Vetcove, searching for products and comparing options across vendors is easy! To search for a product, log in to your Vetcove account and use the search bar at the top of the page to find the product you are looking for.
You can search by product or brand name, manufacturer, active ingredient, manufacturer ID, or even a supplier's SKU number! As an example, here's a search for Enrofloxacin.
Just type some words in the search bar, and hit Enter on your keyboard (or click the "Search" button). Vetcove will return all results from all vendors that Vetcove supports.
Pro Tips to help make searching for items on Vetcove more efficient!
We offer custom shopping lists so you never need to search for items again. You have the ability on every listing to add to your custom list. This is a great tool to use for any brand-specific items like Suture or needle/syringe combos! You can learn more about creating Shopping Lists here. We can also import previously made lists from select vendors - just message us in the Live Chat!
Vetcove also provides a real-time Previous Purchase list for you with the last 2 years of purchase history! To access, click on Shopping at the top of your account then Previous Purchases.
You can also auto-filter search results by Previously Purchased by using the toggle filter on the top left of the search page. This will automatically filter all search results to only display items you've bought in the past from your connected vendors.
You can also Favorite an item or Hide an item. Favoriting will ensure this item listing appears at the top of your search and hiding it will put it at the bottom of the search. Just click the Details button on the listing to view these options.
You'll see a list of products that looks something like this:
On the example search results page above, you'll notice the following information:
In the center part of the page, you'll see all products that match your search, complete with a description and an image.
In the right-hand column, you'll see all of the vendors that carry this exact product, along with your own clinic's pricing from each vendor, and additional stock and promotion information. Icon keys are listed below and will show relevant information when you hover over them!
In the left-hand column, you'll notice various filters that help you narrow your search to find what you're looking for. You can use the check-boxes to control which suppliers, manufacturers, and price ranges you'd like to display.
