I think it’s safe to say many of us have taken to the internet to enter in our variety of aches and pains on a site like WebMD, right? We read what it has to say (hopefully it didn’t scare the bajeezus out of us) and then proceed from there, armed with knowledge when we contact the appropriate professional. But have you ever tried something like that for your pup?
Now with the DoggyDoc app, the doctor is IN. 24/7. On your iOS or Android device.
With DoggyDoc, you can enter in your pet’s specific information, choose from a list of possible issues, and make an informed decision from there.
I tried out the DoggyDoc iOS app for a paw issue Maddie is having and it went a little bit like this…
To start using DoggyDoc, you enter your dog’s breed. There were many to choose from! Next, you enter other details about your dog like its gender, age, whether it has been altered, and whether it’s current on its recommended vaccinations. DoggyDoc will remember these details for the next time you open the app, so if you’re looking up information for another dog, make sure you change the data.
Next, you indicate the area of your dog’s body where it’s experiencing a possible issue. You can choose either inner or outer symptoms. For Maddie, I clicked to find out about her right forepaw.
The next step gives you possible symptoms for the area of the dog’s body you clicked in the prior step. For Maddie I clicked on the symptoms of reddening of skin between paws, and paw swelling. If you have a question on what any of the symptoms might mean, a click on the “i” button next to the symptom brings up a more complete description of the symptom. Additionally, the bar on the bottom of the app makes it extremely easy to navigate back to prior information entered, or to proceed forward. [Read more…]
