Our History

GlobalVetLink, L.C. (GVL®) was founded and headquartered in Ames, Iowa in 1999 by Kevin Maher. His vision was to replace an antiquated paper-based animal health regulatory process with an official, secure digital software system that would be accessible realtime online.

In 2001, we became the first web-based software system in Florida to provide veterinarians, animal health authorities and animal owners with the legal documentation to transport animals both interstate and intra-state.

Since 2001, we’ve been providing online applications to enable veterinarians and animal health practitioners, state authorities, diagnostic laboratories and other animal health officials to build, access, and monitor animal movement records with ease and efficiency.

The first digital software applications available through GVL were companion and food animal Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (CVIs), known as health certificates or eCVIs, which are a secure alternative to USDA APHIS 7001 forms, as well as Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) certificates, often referred to as Coggins.

Today, all U.S. states and territories accept GVL health certificates as official animal documentation. GVL’s product portfolio expands beyond EIA certificates and CVIs to include veterinary prescriptions, Veterinary Feed Directives (VFDs), Extended Equine CVIs (EECVIs, six-month equine health certificates, For Sale pet documents, and veterinary diagnostic results aggregation and analysis tools.

We are the nation’s leader in digital animal records with millions of animals transported within the U.S. using GVL certificates. GVL users continue to improve their business processes, enhancing animal traceability, ensuring regulatory compliance and contributing to animal wellness and safety.

GVL products and services are accessible through any device with access to a web browser, or through participating practice management software vendors. GVL continues to explore new opportunities to partner with industry leaders to provide innovative digital solutions for animal health.
