Handles stock ordering, stock takes, stock transfer and automatic order confirmation
Let’s face it, “Stock on Hand” is money tied up that is not in your Bank Account, and “Stock Not on Hand” are missed Sales Opportunities. Stock management for multi-branch clinics, as well as Large Animal and Equine Practices for per-vehicle stock management can reap huge rewards in terms of efficiency and increased cash flow. Our FREE* fully integrated Stocklink App will allow you to create Purchase Orders, Perform Stock Takes, and Update Automatic Orders generated from within VETLINKSQL’s seasonal min/max logic (which, by the way, can be updated based on previous years’ sales) . Search manually, scan barcodes using the in-built camera, or use a companion miniature Bluetooth laser barcode scanner to achieve perfect inventory.
Incredibly easy to use. Sync data from VETLINKSQL and then there is no further need for an internet connection as you walk around the clinic, the warehouse, or go off to check Vehicles out in the carpark! Simply search for items, or easier still, scan barcodes using the in-built camera or a miniature Bluetooth scanner and enter the quantity required. The screen will assist and show the product Class icon, current Stock on Hand, the appropriate month’s (seasonal) min/max estimate together with pricing and pack size and/or units. Simply enter or increment quantities required. Recurring scans will show last scanned entry so you may update requirements. Once finalised, syncing back will produce multiple Purchase Orders in VETLINKSQL for all Suppliers in one go. Any products without a designated supplier will go to a single Casual Purchase Order, where one is able to right-click items and transfer to an existing or new order. The latter is an advanced VETLINKSQL feature and can be useful for certain items where you may not have a favoured supplier, and may wish to “shop-around” for best pricing or stock availability each time.
The Stock Transfer function is designed to handle stock transfers between inventory “Stores”. Depending on how you have configured VETLINKSQL, it can be used to transfer stock between branch locations, intra-branch (if you have different inventory points within a branch), and between “stores” that are designated Vet and / or Sales Rep vehicles. Simply select a “From” and a “To” store, and start selecting products by searching and /or scanning using the built-in camera or a miniature Bluetooth scanner. Typical uses include scanning products from Head Office to branch clinics, from one branch clinic to another, from a clinic to a vehicle, and finally, between vehicles as Vets or Sale Reps exchange and / or swap inventory.
Tip: To make staff compliant, the process has to be simple. This is our recommendation. Place a Tablet such as an iPad on the wall where stock is taken out, or at the pharmacy window. Default the “From” store in the App to the Warehouse / Pharmacy (or equivalent), and then have the miniature barcode scanner handy. Users simply select their store, scan items they are taking out and then select “Transfer”. Done!
We expect that most Practices will use this App to manage stock levels. Performing a Stock-Take using this App is very simple, yet with sophisticated feature sets. Firstly, a Stock-Take “sheet” is generated within VETLINKSQL so the user or manager is able to decide if they are doing a full stock-take or a category or bin location only. Then, they just decide if one person alone is going to do a stock-take or a number of people are going to do it concurrently. This way the App can have locked cells and multiple simultaneous stock counting can be managed. Data display is also of significance and assists the user to manage accurate stock levels – which of course means that the Automatic Order function in VETLINKSQL can then be used with confidence. If you still decide not to fully trust your automatic orders, we have something else…read on…
Automatic Order Confirmation
Once an Automatic Order has been generated in VETLINKSQL using current stock-on-hand values and desired minimum trigger levels to achieve the seasonal maximum, the Order can be loaded into this App. You can then “walk the shelves”, scan items, and adjust the recommendation(s). The Order can then be transferred back to VETLINKSQL and then submitted electronically to our integrated wholesalers, awaiting automated importation of invoices to make the entire inventory management process seamless with automatic inventory and price updates.
Full Audit Trail
All stock transfer transaction logs are fully auditable and can be found under each product’s stock tab in VETLINKSQL. Management Reports are also available to track stock movement.
*We recommend an Apple iPad for running this App. Note that there is also an Android version available on Google Play and we highly recommended newer “name brand” portrait devices such as Samsung and LG. If in doubt please contact CFL for Android device recommendations as we cannot guarantee all makes and models to work perfectly.

The demand for veterinarians to learn how to properly perform equine dentistry continues to increase. 29 vets endured 5 massive days under the guidance of 9 tutors at Equine Veterinary & Dental Services (EVDS), Grafton, NSW for their annual Level 1 – Essentials of Equine Dentistry Workshop.
Demand for the course was high with 8 vets missing out because the course filled so early.
Not wanting to let anyone down, Dr Oliver Liyou has added a second Level 1 Essentials workshop to the 2017 calendar to service the increasing demand of owners wanting quality dental care for their horses. Dates are 4-8 July 2017 and will again be at EVDS.
The workshop delivers a great mix of lectures, dry labs, cadaver pracs, tutorials, demonstrations and live horses.
This proven combination and sequence of lectures and pracs allows your knowledge and confidence to grow over the five days, and this reinforced knowledge and new skills WILL stay with you.
The last 2 days are entirely on live horses where you are GUARANTEED to use different sedation protocols, systematically examine 6-14 live horse mouths, perform nerve blocks, extract wolf teeth, do performance floats using hand tools and power floats, perform “bit seats”, complete dental charts, demonstrate, communicate and explain pathology to the owners – who will appreciate your efforts and attendance at the workshop.
For those vets who have already done an Intro course and are ready to increase their knowledge and practical skills further in equine dentistry, Level 2 Intermediate Equine Dentistry is being held June 19-22 2017. Dr Oliver Liyou and Dr Shannon Lee will enlighten and inspire your confidence and enthusiasm to help you take the step towards total mastery and fulfilment from doing equine dentistry properly. This four day workshop will be smaller and more personalised than the Level 1 Essentials, allowing participants to really hone in on specific things that they’re wanting to learn.
There will be lectures, tutorials, cadaver pracs and live horse cases (needing extractions etc).
For registrants at the Level 2, Oliver will be offering mentoring to prepare them for sitting their Membership Exams in 2018 with the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science. This support will be in the way of providing papers to study along with study sessions every 2 months.
This additional support is invaluable but there is no extra charge! http://evds.net.au/workshops/level-2-equine-dentistry-workshop

Even more good news too – EVDS will host a Level 3 – Advanced Equine Dentistry and Surgery Workshop in 2018, with an International Speaker to head up the teaching experience. Stay tuned.

Your anaesthetic machine should be maintained annually. A leaking machine can not only pollute the environment, but also increase your operating costs. Just because your patients manage to stay asleep does not mean your machine is safe. In fact, your staff could be breathing in anaesthetic gas all day long & they wouldn’t even know. Your patients & staff deserve a safe & secure environment.
At the time of service, our technicians will use an anaesthetic agent monitor called a Riken Analyser (picture right). The Riken is used to measure the output of the vaporiser & the readings will be documented on a report certificate. These readings are an important indication of the vaporizer output at the time of inspection. Our technician will also perform a leak & pressure test of your complete system & advise you if any components do not comply which will need to be replaced. Anyone not using a Riken Analyser during your routine service is misleading you & not providing a proper service. Calibration of vaporizers is impossible to perform “on-site” as it must be done in a controlled environment. Anyone who tells you otherwise, is misleading you.
The vaporiser is a very important component of your machine. It is important to ensure that the appropriate percentage of anaesthetic agent is being delivered. A malfunctioning vaporizer can be the cause of incorrect depth of anaesthesia and may also be the reason you “lose” a patient.
Most vaporizers on the market are considered “in spec.” if the output is within +- 15% of the dial setting. If the output is not within spec, we will recommend exchanging your vaporizer with a freshly calibrated one. Vaporisers do need to be rebuilt & re-calibrated. Depending on the type & brand of vaporiser you have, this can be anywhere from 2 years to 10 years. VetQuip can assist you with advising as to which type you have & when it will be due for rebuild.
There are several different types & brands of Vaporisers on the market available to Veterinary Practices, with the majority needing a Key Filler to fill with Anaesthetic agent. However, there are some older Pour Fill Vaporisers around which should be avoided for safety reasons. As a Pour Fill Vaporiser requires the staff member to pour Anaesthetic agent into the filler in an open environment, the risk of breathing in vapours is extremely high. Although it is not illegal to use this type of Vaporiser, it is extremely unsafe & you should stay well clear of these outdated Vaporisers.
Having a good quality efficient Rotameter is also an important item on your Anaesthetic machine. It measures the rate of flow of oxygen used for Anaesthetics. Oxygen Therapy flow meters are not a substitute for Rotameters as they are not accurate enough. They can be out of spec by as much as 20%. A Rotameter is designed for Anaesthetics with fine adjustment detail as it is a precise measuring device. If you have a therapy flow meter on your machine, VetQuip can convert it to a Precision Rotameter.
The oxygen flush valve is used to bypass the vaporizer and delivers oxygen only to the common gas outlet. The O2 flush valve should deliver a flow rate of around 40lpm or higher depending on the quality of the flush valve & its supply line. Poor quality flush valves are a common cause of leaks as they use inferior Schroder Valves. If you have a low volume flush valve on your machine, VetQuip can convert it to a high volume unit.
Is your Anaesthetic Machine Safe?
Your Anaesthetic machine should be serviced every 12 months. Manufacturer recommendations & OH&S Standards require yearly Leak & Output checks & Safety Inspections. VetQuip offers on site Anaesthetic Service, Repairs, Inspections and a Vaporiser Exchange Program.
If your current Service Provider is not doing the following, they are not doing the job correctly.
- Vaporiser Calibration Check- Leak & Output (Riken Analyser)
- Calibration/Certification Certificate (Piece of mind your machine is SAFE)
- Full Leak & Pressure Test of Anaesthetic machine & Vaporiser
- Full Evaluation of System
- Parts replacement as required (cost of parts additional)
- Written Report
Your Anaesthetic machine is one of the most important pieces of equipment you can invest in. It actually generates income for your practice. If you invest in good quality equipment & maintain it correctly it will last for years to come & easily pay for itself with less downtime, happier staff & better patient outcomes.
