The 'askPetMD' app is like WebMD for pets, but if WebMD also included opinions from real doctors. Rather than simply offering articles or answers through an algorithm, the 'askPetMD' app allows pet owners to ask specific medical questions about their unique pet, and a qualified veterinarian will respond with an answer within 24 hours.
The app is free to download, and the answers from real vets are free as well. Vets can answer questions about pets' ailments after learning information like the pet's breed, age, diet, weight, gender and medications. The app will also help users to locate a qualified vet nearby if necessary based on the vet's assessment.
Beyond the veterinary service, askPetMD has a vast library of interesting articles about pet health, including topics like behavior, illness, diet, general care, emergency tips and preventative care.
