Frequently Asked Questions

How does the site-wide search work?

Start typing in the search bar on any page to get results from the full library of Plumb’s content, from drug monographs and pet owner handouts to Dx & Tx (formerly Clinical Briefs) and algorithms. You can search by topic or keyword, including drug names, diseases, and clinical signs.

How do I find diagnostic and treatment information?

Dx & Tx (formerly Clinical Briefs), the clinical monographs in Plumb’s Pro, are searchable by disease or clinical sign (eg, wobbler syndrome, blindness) via the search bar. You can also browse the full library on the Dx & Tx landing page, which you can access through the top navigation bar, under Clinical Tools, or under Features in the iOS and Android app.

Where did the Clinical Briefs go?

Clinical Briefs got a new name! Now when you’re looking for diagnostic and treatment information, look for the Dx & Tx label. We’ll be rolling out this change in stages, so you might see the Clinical Briefs name here and there a bit longer. Know the content hasn’t changed—just the name.

Where do I find drug information?

Use the search bar to search by drug or trade name. You can select Drug Monographs from the top navigation bar or the Features page in the app to browse the library alphabetically. Simply click on the drug name to access the full monograph.

Is there an app?

Yes! Plumb’s Pro is now available in the Plumb’s app. It’s free for subscribers to download for iOS or Android. Just search for Plumb’s in your app store. Please note: If you’re accessing Plumb’s Pro without unique sign-in credentials (eg, via enterprise or large practice group accounts), you won’t be able to use the Plumb’s app, but you will continue to have access to the website via your mobile browser.

How does the drug interaction checker work?

Click on the Drug Interaction Checker in the menu at the top of the page or on the Features page in the mobile app. Enter a drug name in the tool and select a match from the drop-down list that appears. You can add as many drugs as needed to evaluate potential drug-to-drug interactions. Each drug pairing is assigned a relevant risk classification, so you can review your options and make informed decisions for your patients.

How do I print or email several pet owner handouts at once?

From the Pet Owner Handouts page in the web app, use the search bar to locate the handouts you would like to send. Click on the plus icon on each search result to select the handout. Then click Print All Handouts or Email All Handouts at the bottom of your screen to add your custom notes and share them as a single file.

If you’re using the mobile app, you can select multiple handouts using the Handout Options pages. To access, just tap on a handout title and then tap Add to list. You can then use the back button to return to search and locate the other handouts you need. Tap Print or Email from the Handout Options page to share with the pet owner.

I don’t remember how to spell my search term. Can I still find what I’m looking for?

Yes! You can just type the first or last few letters and Plumb’s will start populating results. For example, if you type “cef”, Plumb’s will show you drugs starting with that prefix. If you enter a few characters but don’t see what you’re looking for, continue typing to narrow your results further.

What is the support staff role?

Because support staff often play a key role in pet owner education and the patient discharge process, Plumb’s Pro includes a support staff role in multi-user plans that exclusively allows the user to search, print, and email pet owner handouts. Admins can enable this role in their group management settings, and it does not affect available full-access licenses.
