How to: Access and Navigate the Customer Portal Using the Gingr for Pet Parents Mobile App
Clients can download the free mobile app by searching for "Gingr for Pet Parents" in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

If you are a client with access to the customer portal at more than one pet-care facility, you will have the ability to use the mobile app for each one as long as you have the unique invite code from each business.
After the invite code has been entered successfully, you will be immediately taken to the portal's login page where you can sign in using the email address or phone number that you have on file with the facility. If you do not already have a customer portal account, you can create one from this page by choosing the "Sign Up" button.
