As modern society’s requirements for veterinary medical care and animal health continue to increase, the accurate management of animal identity information has become critical. To better meet this need, GlobalVetLink (GVL), a leader in veterinary software solutions, has taken the important step of integrating radio frequency identification (RFID) technology into its Compliance Assistant platform. This integration simplifies the collection and management of animal identification information, giving veterinarians and veterinary professionals a more efficient and accurate way to meet the challenges of their daily work.


Accurately identifying and tracking animals is the cornerstone of modern veterinary care. From disease control and prevention to regulatory compliance, accurate animal identity information plays a critical role in maintaining animal health and ensuring public safety. Traditional animal tracking methods often involve manual data entry and paper documentation, a process prone to errors and inefficiencies.

To solve the problem of accurate animal identification, GlobalVetLink developed the Compliance Assistant platform. This comprehensive platform has been carefully designed from a veterinary perspective to streamline the process of credential creation and recordkeeping while ensuring compliance with relevant interstate and international regulatory requirements.

The most important breakthrough of this platform is its compatibility with RFID readers, which is expected to revolutionize the way animal identification information is collected and managed. RFID technology uses data stored in radio frequency tags, which can be attached to animals, by transmitting this data via radio waves. This data can be easily captured and stored digitally, eliminating the need for manual data entry and paper documents. The potential of this integration is profound.

Let’s take a closer look at the RFID readers and writers that are compatible with the GVL Compliance Assistant platform:

ALLFLEX – AWR300 StickReader: ALLFLEX’s AWR300 StickReader is a powerful tool for collecting animal identification information. Its compatibility with the GVL platform ensures easy integration of animal information into digital records.

Datamars – SRS2 and XRS2 Stick Reader: Datamars’ SRS2 and XRS2 Stick Reader are known for their reliability and accuracy. These RFID readers can now be used to easily transfer animal identification information into the GVL Compliance Assistant platform.

Destron Fearing – Global Pocket Reader+: Destron Fearing’s Global Pocket Reader+ provides a versatile solution for the collection of animal identification information. Its compatibility with the GVL platform ensures veterinarians have access to the most advanced tools to manage animal health.

Shearwell Data – SDL440S Stick Reader: Shearwell Data’s SDL440S Stick Reader is another valuable tool compatible with the GVL Compliance Assistant platform. It allows veterinarians to easily capture animal identification information, improving the overall efficiency of their operations.

Enhanced Certificate Creation and Animal Health Management

An immediate benefit of this RFID integration is its impact on certificate creation. The GVL Compliance Assistant platform simplifies the process of generating Certificates of Veterinary Inspections (CVIs). By using animal identification information collected by RFID readers, the creation of these certificates becomes faster and more accurate.

RFID technology eliminates the possibility of data entry errors and ensures that information is up to date. This not only streamlines the workflow for veterinarians but also increases the accuracy of generated documentation. This is particularly critical in the context of regulatory compliance and disease tracing.

Summary and Outlook

The adoption of RFID technology in veterinary practice represents an important step in improving veterinary medical care. GlobalVetLink’s partnerships with leading RFID reader manufacturers ensure veterinarians have access to state-of-the-art tools to collect and manage animal identification information.

As Stacey Noe, Director of Product at GlobalVetLink, highlighted, “We have shown how the GlobalVetLink platform can leverage animal identification data collected through RFID readers, which is another way we can help our customers be more efficient in completing the regulatory tasks they need. We We are pleased to demonstrate this compatibility and help veterinarians further streamline their workflow.”

In short, integrating RFID technology into the GVL Compliance Assistant Platform is a major development in the field of veterinary medicine. By streamlining the collection and management of animal identification data, this innovation is expected to improve the efficiency, accuracy and animal health management of veterinary practices. This change will not only enable veterinarians to better meet regulatory requirements, but will also provide strong support for traceability and disease control in animal health.
