GUELPH, ON – September 27, 2017
Veterinary practices are about to get a powerful boost in their technology and online capabilities with a newly announced agreement between LifeLearn Animal Health and ALLYDVM.
ALLYDVM products are now available as part of LifeLearn’s veterinary practice ECOsystem, a comprehensive suite of custom digital solutions, products and services designed to help veterinary teams better educate and communicate with clients, and optimize their practice.

“Our goal is to help improve the overall health of veterinary practices by identifying or ‘diagnosing’ where their pain and symptoms are today, and then providing a range of powerful and connected treatment options,” said Randy Valpy, president and CEO of LifeLearn. “It’s easy to see why ALLYDVM solutions are the ideal complement to the LifeLearn ECOsystem.”

Scott Harper, CEO of ALLYDVM, shares Valpy’s enthusiasm for what the two industry leaders can achieve together. “Like LifeLearn, we’re focused on maximizing veterinary practices’ success by elevating their information and technology capabilities,” Harper said.
While LifeLearn provides custom website development, online marketing support and client education resources that include fully vetted professional articles for pet owner clients, ALLYDVM has developed software services for veterinary practices including its popular Retention Calendar, the industry’s most sophisticated client communications system, and a fully automated loyalty program distributed through the PetPage mobile app.

“ALLYDVM’s powerful in-house data management capabilities really differentiate these solutions because integration is stable, secure, and doesn’t rely on third parties,” said Mark Stephenson, chief veterinarian and chief corporate development officer for LifeLearn. “The practices we work with can optimize their profitability and productivity through client retention and compliance tools that are well-integrated with their existing PIMS.”
“This partnership is driving a whole new level of connecting our technologies and sharing our specialized veterinary content and expertise,” Stephenson added. “This will further strengthen practices’ ongoing ability to attract, communicate with, and educate their clients.”

ALLYDVM continues to work collaboratively with some of the largest and most sophisticated independent practices and corporate groups in the world. In fact, ALLYDVM Founder and COO, Jason Wernli, has spent years consulting directly with large veterinary clinics where he’s seen common gaps and opportunities. “This is why their feedback drives our development priorities, and our software is designed from their perspectives,” Wernli said.
A recent study ALLYDVM conducted for the American Animal Hospital Association’s Veterinary Management School showed that, on average, veterinary practices have 1,091 active patients with fewer than two reminders. ALLYDVM finds and converts those opportunities into real results through custom alerts and communications. “Even if a practice only adds one extra appointment each day,” Wernli explained, “that effort will result in dramatically better financial outcomes for the practice, and significantly greater health outcomes for its patients.”

“Improved client retention and client compliance are the best ways for most practices to grow,” Wernli said. “Our solutions are tailored to the unique needs of veterinary practices, and automatically support these efforts in a scalable and profitable way.”

According to Valpy, the LifeLearn ECOsystem supports veterinary practices with a team that truly understands how their businesses run and the technology solutions they need to be more profitable. “This ultimately empowers them to deliver the highest level of animal health care,” Valpy said.


ALLYDVM aspires to be the veterinarian’s ultimate ALLY. The company’s flexible software platform was developed in collaboration with top veterinary practices, and it includes a number of modules that serve a range of veterinary practice and corporate group needs. ALLYDVM is led by executives with deep expertise in the veterinary industry, and the company has won numerous preferred provider designations and awards, including the Harvard Business School MVP competition.
