I am trying to web scrape from

https://portal.securevetsource.com/PetOwner.html#vetfinder

 

However the URL seems be uncanged after entering city or zip code. Any suggessions?

Try giving the download tool a URL like this:

https://portal.securevetsource.com/api/practice/vetfinder/?searchString=&zip=46556&radius=50

That produced data for me.

 

Here is how I found that URL:

1) I used chrome and navigated to the site.

2) I hit F12 to open the developer tools.

3) I entered a zip code and hit search.

4) I went back to the developer tools, clicked on the network tab, and then clicked on the sixth entry that started with ?searchstring.

5) It shows the headers on the right side with the URL that I pasted above. 

 

It can get much more complicated than this, but the developer tools in chrome will be your friend.
