Tip #4: Keep your contact information updated

Make sure your contact information is up to date on your Vetcove Account & Settings page. The first and last name should be the name of the person who actively uses the account and does the ordering. The same goes for the email you have on file with us. The email should be the best address to get in touch with you.

Our Account Management team periodically reaches out with reminders. Making sure your contact information is up to date is important so that you receive any relevant reminders or communications about using Vetcove!

Also note that if more than one staff member uses Vetcove for any purpose, it's usually recommended that they each have their own login! You can set up additional logins with our Manage Users tool (permission levels are customizable, as well). This makes account recovery much easier in the event that the person who primarily uses your Vetcove account is no longer with the practice.
