Mella Pet Care, an ecosystem of health monitoring solutions for veterinarians and pet parents, recently announced a key partnership integration with Vetspire, a leading practice management system (PiMS). Using their existing workflows, veterinarians can integrate Vetspire and other PiMS with the Mella Pet Care Desktop App to instantly collect vital signs from Mella devices.

The Mella desktop app helps veterinary practices simplify their workflows, reduce errors, and improve efficiency. Through its user-friendly interface, the Mella desktop app can automatically pull patient records, vital sign history and other critical data — removing the need for manual data entry. The veterinarian’s computer doesn’t even need to be in the same room as the Mella hardware.

Mella currently offers four devices measuring axillary body temperature, BMI, and other essential health data in dogs and cats. Along with Vetspire, other PiMS integrating with the Mella app include Covetrus, ezyVet, Digitail, Rhapsody, Shepherd, NaVetor, and DaySmart, enabling thousands of practices to spend more time on patient care.

“Vetspire is a cloud-based veterinary software that makes the veterinarian’s journey easier, allowing care teams to modernize their workflow,” said Cath Colton-Rhoads, senior director of product at Vetspire. “Thanks to our integration with Mella, medical staff will spend less time writing notes and more time with our beloved pets”.

“We understand the current frustration that veterinary practices face when dealing with multiple hardware and software platforms that don’t communicate with their existing PiMS,” said Anya Babbitt, CEO of Mella. “This new seamless integration allows practices to focus on what they do best — provide exceptional care to their furry patients.”

In a 2023, researchers at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UWL) found that treating dogs and cats with underarm thermometers like the Mella Pro “significantly” decreases procedure and handling time compared to conventional rectal thermometers — reducing animal stress and improving owner satisfaction.
