Major new facilities at Grove Referrals

Major new facilities at Grove Referrals

26th October 2012

Grove Referrals is a busy second opinion practice accepting small animal referrals in orthopaedic, spinal surgery and ophthalmology from veterinary surgeons throughout East Anglia.

Phase I of the new development is now complete, with Phase II well underway and due for completion early next year. There is a large new preparation area which serves two state of the art operating theatres and digital x-ray. Eclipse Veterinary Software's very own, Charlie Brown, is seen here setting up the latest addition to the diagnostic image viewing equipment, suitably attired for his surroundings, of course.

Completion of phase II in mid-Feb 2013 will increase the kennels with dedicated dog, cat and isolation wards. A second preparation area will serve a minor operating theatre, dental room, imaging suite (digital x-ray, ultrasound and endoscopy) and CT with GE Brivo 385 16 slice scanner.

All modalities are able to be supported by the Eclipse PACS system which stores images and enables vets to retrieve them quickly and easily to any workstation.

Eclipse Mobile for iPad revealed

Eclipse Mobile for iPad revealed

11th October 2012

Eclipse Mobile, the iPad edition of our practice management system was launched in beta version today and will be available to all existing Eclipse customers for testing in the field.

New clients will be able to buy Eclipse Mobile systems next year, either as a full suite with locally-installed IT or as a hosted service via the web. Running on iPad 2 and the new iPad, as well as iPhones (3GS or later), Android smartphones (certain models only), Mobile's functionality will also be available to laptop users via a standard web browser.

Including all the essentials for the ambulatory vet, including client and animal histories, related documents and forms, lab test results, diagnostic imaging (view via OsiriX MD), and billing information, Eclipse Mobile should be a boon to those on the road. Lightweight and with a long battery life of approximately 10 hours, the iPad is an ideal companion.

"I'm really proud of our newest addition to the product line", said Jeanne Razzell, CEO of Eclipse Veterinary Software, "The way it handles things when you are out of range of a 3G connection means it is a genuinely useful all day/every day tool. No more driving back and forth to the practice just to find out where you should be/collect details. Just park up in a good mobile signal area, let the iPad sync up automatically and you are ready to go again!"

For more information or to arrange a demonstration, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the enquiry form (click on the Demo tab).

French Connection!

French Connection!

30th August 2012

In August, the Eclipse team met with Babette Schily from the Pau region in France to hear of the interest in Eclipse software from the equine community, which mirrors that in Newmarket.

Pau so British is a "Franglais" association in Pau, near the Pyrenees in France, an area with many connections to our own thoroughbred industry. Blessed with an excellent climate all year round, ideal for training, and with many facilities for the equine owner or breeder, Pau welcomes British visitors to the area for business, leisure and tourism.

The association was formed in October 2011 when it was decided, at the request of the Pau Hunt who wanted to celebrate their 170th anniversary, to organise a party during the International Horse Trials with a "Pau So British" theme.
Other clubs and associations rallied to the flag (Pau Race Course, Pau Golf Club, Pau Yacht Club, The Real Tennis Club, to mention just a few), the object being to make the most of the sporting and cultural events in Pau's calendar and to spotlight the town's historic and sporting connections with Britain.
If you are interested in equine facilities or just in visiting Pau, the best person to get in contact with is Babette Schily, the Business Development Advisor, Conseiller Développement Territorial CCIT Pau Béarn – Conseiller Filière Equine. email:
