Digitail vs. Hippo


Digitail vs. Hippo Manager

Achieve more with fewer clicks and fewer integrations
with the all-in-one veterinary software built for your workflow


A design you will actually love ❤️

Unfortunately, all animal hospitals are experiencing staff turnover. That’s why we made it easy for new team members to be onboarded in no time.

Digitail was built to be easy to use even for someone who did not go through the training process.

Easy to understand, no need for manuals, and no more extra clicks.


All-in-one platform☝️

Copying/moving/syncing info from one tool to another should not be part of your daily tasks.

All the features you need are natively built in Digitail. No extra 3rd party tools or subscriptions required.

Pet portal, automated reminders, 2 way chat, telemedicine, online booking system, dedicated learning center, internal chat, and many more features to help you enhance the pet parent experience.


Advanced, aggregated reporting 📈

What’s your average visit time or what are your top performing services? Have you update markups according to cost increases? Have you ever wondered if new clients that are coming from Facebook spend more if clients that find you on Yelp? Track and understand your data, with real-time insights. We help you set KPIs and monitor them.

From financial and operational reports to client and medical reports, you can access everything from one place or get daily / weekly summaries via email.

“We’ve been using Digitail for about 18 months now, and it’s been a successful, smooth transition. There are several really neat features that our staff have been enjoying, mainly because they align with the modern workflow and communication preferences of both our team and clients.”

“First time in my career that I can say that I really love our PMS! How many vets get to say that? Huge shout out to the whole team at Digitail….Awesome platform, awesome support!”

“First and foremost, the software is so easy to use and very functional. One of the great things about it is being able to access it ANYWHERE. The pet-parent portal is also genius, and our clients are definitely fans! The chat function and diary updates are great for managing difficult cases. We also really like how the treatments are so easily approved and defined within a SOAP note and then anything approved will automatically pull into the invoice. It makes missing charges a thing of the past.”

“One of the challenges was choosing a software program that we can use on any device either at the clinic or at home. Being a mom, it was important to me to spend as much time as I could at home while still having access to my business.”

“Digitail bills itself as ‘modern veterinary software you wish you’d had sooner,’ which is exactly as straightforward as it sounds. It also happens to be true… It’s like upgrading from a PDA to an iPhone, it just works. It makes communications and management easy in a cloud-based system.”

“…Digitail is constantly stepping up to the plate, innovating, growing, and improving. Willing to adapt and change with the customer base. I wanted software that had the vet in mind – that wasn’t worried about large corporate agendas. Digitail was new on the block, but from the start, I was excited by Digitail’s potential. Three years later, I couldn’t be happier with my choice. I know there will always be innovation and growth shaped by their users, like me.”
