Animana Release Highlights: Version 7.3

This version of Animana contains several bug fixes, security improvements, and behind-the-scenes enhancements. It also includes the following changes:

Patient file improvements

A new look action button row

To improve usability and accessibility, we have given the patient file action buttons a new look, and have made all the buttons the same colour, making actions faster and easier.

Estimates have moved!

Due to the popularity of “estimates”, we have moved the action from the drop-down to it’s own action button – so you’ll now find it as the last button on the action button row.

Enhanced patient file filter customisations

In the last release of Animana, we introduced redesigned filters in the patient file, and in this release, we’re happy to improve these further with the option to show or hide the second (or third) filter row.

Just click the expand/collapse icon on the right side.

When visiting a different patient file, Animana will remember the last state (collapsed or uncollapsed), so your view will stay as you left it unless you change device or clear your browser cookies.

Custom Protocols in the patient file

The appearance of custom protocols in the patient file has been improved, so that it more closely represents how it’s defined in settings > general settings > custom protocols.

Group names are now shown with sub-information correctly shown within that section, and text formatting has been improved.

For more information about custom protocols and how to define groups, see our help hub article How do I create a new basic custom protocol? or for tips to use custom protocols to easily identify important pet information at a glance, see the related tip on the Animana Tips and Tricks page.

Refreshed Invoice Details report

The Invoice details report (Extra > Reports > Invoice Details (Excel Export)) has been improved, with a new look and feel and new sorting options for most of the columns.


We hope you enjoy working with the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this version of IDEXX Animana. If you have any questions about any of the changes listed above, don’t hesitate to check the Animana help hub or get in touch with Animana Customer Support
