Introduction to PATHPORT

At the Veterinary Pathology Group (VPG) we’re committed to making animal testing and diagnosis accessible to all and as easy as possible. As a result, we launched PATHPORT, an online portal which allows the veterinary community to have instant access to all their VPG submissions including test information and patient results.

What is PATHPORT?

PATHPORT is a sophisticated but very simple to use website, which enables you to view prices, order tests, request extra tests, submit samples and view order status. You will be able to see current and past test results for individual patients in a clear modern layout.

Why use PATHPORT?

PATHPORT makes the testing process easy and everything you need is in one place. The portal allows you to create new submissions easily and to view test results as soon as they are reported. It also provides detailed price information for VPG services, gives you all the requirements needed for each test including sample type and protocols. You are also able to easily and quickly view and compare past test results for your patients.

Results feature highlighting and graphical presentation so you can easily determine whether a result is in the normal range or higher/lower than expected. You can receive your results via email or directly into patient records via VETENVOY, but they will also simultaneously appear on PATHPORT.

EASILAB is a highly competitively priced service designed specifically for everyday cases in cost conscious first opinion practices. EASILAB is designed to be delivered online exclusively through PATHPORT and includes screening profiles for dogs and cats which include a full veterinary haematologist reviewed CBC, renal screening, urinalysis with full sediment examination and culture, blood film examination by a veterinary haematologist, ear cytology and culture.

How to use it?

Every VPG practice has a single account to gain access to PATHPORT, which can be accessed here. Please contact us if you need to know the email address your account is linked to.

Instructional videos on how to use PATHPORT can be found on our website. These videos explain how to access the portal along with easy to follow instructions explaining how to add new tests. Our dedicated support team are also able to help with any other PATHPORT queries.

For more information on PATHPORT please get in touch, the contact details for each of our laboratories can be found here.
