UVIS Access

UVIS (Universal Veterinary Information System) is the system serving as the Hospital Information System (HIS) for the VMTH and the Lab Information Management system (LIM) for the VMDL.  If you have access to this system, your account is separate and distinct from other accounts you may use (including your PawPrint).
