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 digital animal health regulatory software system that would be accessible real-time via the Internet. In 2001, GVL became the first web-based system in the State of Florida to provide veterinarians, animal health authorities and animal owners with the legal documentation to transport animals both interstate and intra-state.
Since 2001, GVL has been providing on-line applications to enable practitioners, state authorities, diagnostic laboratories and other health officials to build, access, and monitor animal movement records with ease and efficiency. Companion and Food Animal Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), now known as HealthLINK®, and Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) Certificates, available through EquusLINK, were the first digital software applications available. Today, all 50 states and 3 U.S. territories accept GVL certificates as official animal documentation. GlobalVetLINK’s product portfolio expands beyond EIA and eCVI certificates offering GoPass® Electronic Equine Passports, For Sale Electronic Pet Certificates and FeedLINK® Electronic Veterinary Feed Directive System (eVFDs).
GlobalVetLINK has become the national leader in electronic animal records with over 173 million animals transported within the U.S. using GVL’s digital certificates. Through the use of electronic certificates, clients of GVL continue to improve their business processes, thereby enhancing animal traceability and regulatory compliance.
GlobalVetLINK is dedicated to enable animal health practitioners to utilize “best practices” to quickly and accurately create professional health documents. GVL products and services are accessible directly 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 innovators to provide innovative digital solutions for animal health.
