Help Keep Your Pet Healthy with VitusVet
VitusVet, created by Mark Olcott, DVM and Kalpesh Raval, is a free mobile app that allows users to view their pets’ complete medical records at any time.
The app, which launched this past May, is currently the only method that makes it possible for veterinary offices to share their patients’ entire medical record history with their valuable clients when they need it the most – during an emergency. It is also the only app of its kind that includes a pet owner-facing solution, which allows the user to invite friends, family, kennels, dog walkers, pet sitters, and others to view their pet’s history and offers a search option to find the closest veterinary emergency clinic – crucial when primary care veterinary offices might be closed or during travel.
VitusVet also allows pet owners to upload their own notes, take photos, and schedule appointments with their veterinarians, in addition to the comprehensive medical history and the “Find an ER” function. Pet owners are also able set medication and vaccination reminders and share that info with others, so everyone receives the same information for care. Additionally, the app provides record sharing between multiple veterinarians – this is vital, as many pet owners mistakenly assume an emergency clinic recommended by their primary care veterinarian will already have their pet’s record on file.
