How GAO RFID Meets the Challenges of Veterinary Clinics

Adopting the software and hardware to run your business effectively is critical. Having the transparency of knowing where your inventory, documentation, equipment and medication are located saves time and money. Integrating our RFID readers, tags and peripherals with your veterinary office will give you more time to run your business. Your focus should be on helping injured livestock and pets, not running around trying to locate files and equipment. GAO RFID solutions can help your veterinary office streamline the most important processes.

Inventory Management

Controlling inventory is critical to the successful functioning of any veterinary office. The GAO RFID Asset Tracking System can assist veterinarians with following inventory management protocols:

  1. Product ordering
  2. Product receipt
  3. Charging out inventory
  4. Tracking medication usage
  5. Batch/Lot and expiration date tracking
  6. Stock levels for medication
  7. Cost and pricing of inventory ordering
  8. Accounts receivable tracking of ordered goods
  9. RFID readers can eliminate staff errors when it comes to documentation

Get immediate access to on-hand levels for when items need to be dispensed and re-ordered.

Equipment Management     

Autoclaves & sterilizers, endoscopes, equine equipment, infusion pumps, microscopes, syringe pumps and a wide array of veterinary equipment used in surgeries and examinations can be viewed instantly on your office computer ensuring they are in working order once they are tagged with RFID Tags. The GAO RFID solution for Veterinary Clinics can automate the equipment tracking and maintenance schedule monitoring process. Fully functioning equipment provides accurate diagnostic results.                        

Animal Tracking

Pet owners and farmers who breed agricultural animals for food benefit from tagging animals with Animal RFID Tags. The Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) was formed in 1988 to safeguard animals raised for food. A Techtomic Inc. survey of 201 U.S. retail and foodservice meat professionals revealed, “Approximately 75% of U.S. retail and food service meat professionals surveyed would prefer to purchase beef produced from cattle with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) ear tags, which can be used to identify their herd of origin.” This is very important for determining food safety in the possible outbreak of infection or disease in cattle and other farm animals, before they are slaughtered and processed for food.

Document Management

GAO RFID glass tags are compliant with ISO standards, ISO 11784 is the standard used for DEFRA’s PetLog and for Pet passport identifying animals for travel to different countries. RFID tags can be used in combination with a DEFRA Passport Control Sheet that includes a passport number linked to a specific chip in an individual animal.
