I use Sofie almost every day. The ability to look up dosages for medications is very convenient. “In just about every complicated case, there is usually something I want to look up in order to make sure I’m not missing any major differentials. In a busy practice, just taking a minute to look up differentials is a life saver for my patients.

Melanie VanicekVeterinarian

I have a house call practice, so I am on the road 90% of the time. To have a tool which I can take with me to access text books and journals between my calls is very valuable.

Jana KeltonVeterinarian

No more outdated texts or searching the shelves for the right text. As our practice grows, it will also eliminate the need to share resources between multiple doctors.

Paula BedfordVeterinarian

I found it very easy to use and liked the fact it cited multiple sources.
