Pathway Vet Alliance, a U.S. veterinary management group serving pets and owners, has acquired Vetspire, an artificial intelligence veterinary medical record and practice management platform, the company announced Tuesday. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“In addition to Vetspire’s excellent practice management platform and medical records system, one of the things that made this acquisition an attractive opportunity was their vision to create an experience that allows veterinarians to focus on what they love – providing care for pets and people who love them,” said Stephen Hadley, CEO of Pathway Vet Alliance. “Both of our companies share this philosophy and maintain a commitment to evolve the industry for the better.”

“I grew up in veterinary medicine. I lived with my mother in Chicago and watched her start her own veterinary practice. She would stop seeing patients around six o’clock at night but still would not come home until several hours later after she finished writing up her notes. Veterinarians are so overworked,” added Sam Ginn, Vetspire founder and CEO. “Vetspire was founded with the belief that software could help veterinarians be more efficient and effective and ultimately make their lives a little better.”
