“Sofie has been an invaluable resource to me in the clinic. During emergency situations or busy high-volume days, there is no scrambling through textbooks looking for reference information – I already have all the information I need at my fingertips within seconds from multiple trustworthy resources. It has made me a more efficient veterinarian and improved both my quality of life and practice.”
Dr. Taylor Moore, Oceanside Veterinary Hospital
“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 lifesaver for my patients.”
Dr. Melanie Vanicek, Kerrville Veterinary Clinic

“No more outdated texts or searching the shelves for the right text.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.”
– Dr. Paula Bedford, Maple Ridge Veterinary Hospital
