Hi judy, I was looking ar the iConsult for iPad app, but i cant find it. Is it something that is in the works and not up and running just yet? Cheers

Hi Kay, the iConsult for iPad is definitely up and running but I think their website is currently being updated. You can click on the link on the 'Veterinary Applications' image above to see some information in the Veterinary Branding Catalogue. You can also contact Jess at Veterinary Branding with any questions 07 55984300 or order@vetbranding.com.au. If you've got an iPad Jess can also set you up with a free trial which is probably the best way to check it out for yourself :)
