It seems new apps for pets or their owners are launching more frequently than ever before. Our friends at K9 Magazine compiled a list of the 5 best apps for dog owners last year, but could one of those apps be about to lose their spot to the latest pet health app released by Bayer Animal Health?
As an owner of three dogs and a cat I’ve found myself switching healthcare routines to set them all on the same schedule for flea and worm treatments. Not only was it much easier knowing what was needed and when with everyone working to the same routine, but it also meant I received a lot less reminder texts from my vet.
Still I’ve found myself wondering over the last year if there was an easier way to remind myself. I use calendar notifications and apps for everything from shopping reminders to tracking my exercise, so why haven’t I ever looked to see if there was an app for my pets lives?
Maybe there never was one, or maybe I needed a nudge to investigate.
This week, I got that nudge.
The Pet Life app from Bayer launched and is designed to be your pet personal assistant. You begin by adding your pet’s profile before moving onto the more in-depth information so you can keep track of reminders for treatments, appointments and even your pet’s weight.
The move to using the app was pretty easy, it didn’t feel like it was going to be extra work to maintain and another ‘job for the list’ – although perhaps this is because I’m used to using apps for my own daily recordings – but it gave me peace of mind in truth knowing someone (or something) else was in charge of remembering what was needed and when to keep everyone happy and healthy.
It was also really easy to use and comes packed with useful resources and videos for extra tips along the way. Best of all, it’s free.
Take a look at the app in more detail for yourself, it could be the answer you’ve been looking for putting the reminders in the hands of someone (or something) else and fun back in yours.
