As veterinarians know, seconds matter in a critical pet care situation. Fortunately, Dr. Taylor Moore of Oceanside Veterinary Hospital only needed seconds to access Sofie when a pup’s life hung in the balance.
“I had the program open at work yesterday when I got a call about a possible bee sting patient coming in. After my year away from practice, I wanted to double check my doses for diphenhydramine and dex SP, so I searched for bee sting treatment, found what I needed in about 10 seconds, and was ready and reviewed on the topic within about 30-60 seconds.
When the pup arrived, it was not just a typical bee sting patient – he was in anaphylactic shock and dying. Thanks to my quick Sofie review, I was ready to spring into action and treat the pup with everything he needed and didn’t forget any details in the stress of the moment! It was such a testament to the software you guys have created and how much it can improve quality of care as well as quality of life for the vets who will use it. There was no scrambling through Plumb’s, pulling emergency drug sheets, etc. after he arrived – I already had all the reference information I needed at my fingertips. The pup is home and doing great today.”
