Share handouts or forms

With the patient history, there will be two VetCheck buttons:

  • VetCheck NEW
  • VetCheck Download

Handouts are provided for teams to help educate their customers and to deliver high quality care at every interaction. They can be shared before as a booking confirmation, during a customer visit or over the phone. They can also be customised based on a personal conversation you may have had with the customer.

Digital forms allow clients to complete on their mobile device prior to their vet visit, reducing bottlenecks at reception during admission and reducing the paperwork.


When the VetCheck NEW button in the patient history of Ciderhouse is clicked, a VetCheck log in modal will open within a web browser.

You will be prompted to login or confirm your login details.

You will then be presented with the VetCheck Plugin dashboard.

  • All handouts – here you will be able to search and share a handout, discharge instructions, home care videos, pre treatment sheet and more

Once you have selected your handout and form, click SINGLE-SHARE. The client details will pre-populate within the share modal for you to click "share". Check the client details are correct before sharing.

The VetCheck communication can be personalised individually for the client via the share modal.

These details are permanent additions to the communications and will remain part of the patient record on top of the handout or form below.

Something's not working

We've gathered a list of the most common questions:

I just signed up online. What next? Great! We will be in contact with you to organise a logo for your VetCheck communications as well as details for where you wish your customer emails to be downloaded to. It may take 24 hours before your logo can be viewed.
How can I add my practice logo to the digital handouts/forms? Currently, we manage the logo uploads. If you wish for the logo to be changed, please email us at [email protected]
How can I increase the client completion rate of our practice forms? The average completion rate of digital forms is around 57%. To increase this rate, always let the client know that a form is coming by email, share the forms 3-7 days before the procedure, and review the incomplete form list daily and send a reminder.
The handout or form did not appear within the patient history. Only handouts and forms that are shared from the patient history will be saved to that patient history. You must click on the VetCheck DOWNLOAD button within the patient record to view these communications.
The customer says they never received their practice communication. Occasionally, email messages are mistakenly delivered to the Junk Email folder instead of the inbox. It's always a good idea to advise the pet owner to check their Junk Email folder if they haven't received your communication within a few minutes and make sure your client's email address is up to date within your practice management system.
Can I suggest topics for client handouts or request forms? We welcome feedback and suggestions to enhance the VetCheck system. Please email us at [email protected] .
Can I print the client handouts and forms? The handouts and forms have been optimized for use on digital devices such as tablets and smartphones. You can use your devices standard print options to try and print these resources however they have not be set up for this usage.
