ABOUT

Vet to Vet started as a platform for private diagnostic providers to securely communicate pathology and radiology results to private practice veterinarians. Soon after we realized that brilliant veterinarians (you) could used the ultra-integrated V2V toolbox (cloud storage, file sharing, email, texting, video chat, word processing, spreadsheets, website building, etc.) to connect professionally and do business in countless ways we never could imagine. We have now come to view V2V as a largely open-source system for veterinarians that enables creativity and allows us to communicate medically and in business.

If your clinic does business with a V2V independent diagnostic provider then your clinic account is free. V2V does not sell advertising and sustains financially by collecting a nominal fee from providers who use the platform to help their businesses. We confirm the identity of all veterinarians registered on V2V and all veterinarians’ names are followed by DVM, VMD, or an international degree designation. Vet to Vet is wholly owned by a licensed veterinarian who practiced small animal medicine for 10 years and is now in private pathology practice.

FAQs

What's the difference between a V2V account and a simple email account?

Two main differences: 1) V2V gives you an integrated suite of apps which are connected to your computer and mobile devices. Everybody knows what email is, but not everyone knows about the bundle of apps that comes with a G suite. Most veterinarians practicing today have grown up working with an installation of Microsoft Office and an independent email account. But if you visit most universities or even your child's high school, you'll see that almost everything that can be done with Office can now be done with apps which are integrated with email and the cloud. This means you can start a document or spreadsheet at your clinic and leave your computer there. After you leave you can login with any device that has a browser and resume working on your document right where you left off. You can also work offline on a plane or train, and your changes are saved automatically when your device reconnects. In addition to email, word processing and spreadsheets, other applications in the bundle include video calling, text messaging, voicemail, calendar, and website building.

OK--what's the difference between a V2V account and a free gmail account?

V2V is privately administered (by a veterinarian) and gives you twice the cloud storage of a gmail account.

2) V2V is configured to connect you with other veterinarians. By confirming the identities of veterinarians and disallowing corporate advertising, V2V creates a professional space for collaboration. Users are encouraged to treat V2V as a largely open source platform in which you can create and share information and applications with other veterinarians. The list of professional resources shared on the site is currently small but growing steadily.

What do you mean V2V is "largely open-source"? Are there any restrictions? (and what's the difference between a V2V account and VIN?)

In addition to email, V2V gives you a toolbox full of apps which you can use to create and share. The only requirement is that you do not do anything illegal with your account. For example, you cannot post an electronic copy of copyrighted materials to V2V systemwide sharing. "As long as it's legal, go for it."


Can I just use my V2V account as a personal email and use the cloud storage to keep my personal files and photos?

Yes. "As long as it's legal, go for it."


My clinic does business with a V2V provider. How much does it cost for me to setup a clinic account?

It's free. Contact admin@dvm1.com.


I don't do business with a V2V provider but I would like a V2V account. How much will that cost?

$89 annually which includes a mandatory $10 donation to the ASPCA.


Can non-veterinarians get a V2V account?

Paraveterinary professionals such as RVTs are welcome to V2V but must be sponsored by a veterinarian. Please complete our registration form or email the required registration information to admin@dvm1.com. Complete the registration form using your name but indicate in the name of your sponsoring veterinarian in the comments or email.


Why doesn't V2V have a web domain that sounds something like Vet to Vet?

These domains were already taken by veteran-associated organizations. Currently dvm1.com does not display in your browser because domain mapping has not yet been added to our web page builder.


Does V2V sell any pet products or own a veterinary clinic?

No.


Does the owner of V2V have any pets?

You betcha--that's why he became a vet.
