Electronic Vet’s web-based vaccination records generate USEF Perks partnership.

Electronic Vet is pleased to announce their partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation. With this new partnership, Electronic Vet will be a coveted member of the USEF Perks program, which is exclusive to USEF members. Together Electronic Vet and USEF share the same passion and focus on bettering the equine community by ensuring all horses are vaccinated on a fair and consistent basis, while providing a secure, safe, easy to use system.

The eVet certificate uses a secure, comprehensive, online database which alleviates the need for multiple paper copies of vaccination records and eliminates potential record damage or loss. The certificate keeps a running log of all the horse’s immunizations for the year (and years prior) in chronological order. For those horses unable to receive vaccinations due to unfavorable reactions, Electronic Vet has a solution. With their innovative mindset, a temperature log was created to ensure every horse is up to USEF standards. The entry process is very straightforward and easy for horse trainers and owners to keep a consistent record of their horse’s temperature.

Because the platform is web-based, users can access their accounts at any time from any device. The importance of a web-based system allows veterinarians and their technicians ease of use while in the field and tending to their clients, and trainers and horse owners the peace of mind that their records are secure and available when their horses arrive at the show. Certificates can be printed on paper, or viewed from the eVet website, and horse show competitors can provide any horse show office proof of vaccination history to comply with the new USEF rule, GR 845.

GR 845 states all horses entering the grounds of a Federation-licensed competition must be accompanied by documentation of Equine Influenza Virus and Equine Herpes Virus (Rhinopneumonitis) vaccinations within six months prior to entering the stables.

The rule change came about due to several high profile Equine Herpes (EHV) outbreaks in recent years that have involved the neuropathic strain of the virus (equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy-EHM). Some competitions have placed vaccination requirements on their competitors that go beyond most accepted medical opinions and raise concern that unnecessary requirements can potentially put a horse at risk. The intent of this rule is to ensure that all licensed competitions comply with the vaccination guidelines for Equine Influenza and Equine Herpes (Rhinopneumonitis) published by the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). These guidelines are reviewed by infectious disease experts regularly, and recommend vaccinating competition horses at six-month intervals for both equine influenza (flu) and rhinopneumonitis (EHV-1 and EHV-4).

The benefits of Electronic Vet go beyond the USEF rule change. The need for electronic medical records has been necessary in the horse industry for some time now. Barb Blasko, CEO and founder of Electronic Vet, saw the need for change and used her expertise and passion to create this platform for veterinarians, horse owners and trainers alike. With many top riders and trainers, such as Hope and Ned Glynn, Tamie Smith and Karl Cook, using eVet the masterminds behind Electronic Vet look forward to bringing the equine world more exciting and relevant products in the near future.

With Electronic Vet’s association and partnership with prestigious organizations such as HITS, Blenheim EquiSports and the Northern California Association of Equine Practitioners, Electronic Vet knows the addition of USEF is just the beginning for this small but mighty company.
