Earlier this year, I wrote a story about a cool new program that in essence is like a personal assistant to your pets. My Pets On Time keeps will keep track of veterinary, grooming and other appoints along with medical records and also issues reminders so you don’t forget. Check out the video in the story (see lower left) for a quick look at what the program will do.
If you’ve wanted to test out this helpful new pet product, here’s your chance. My Pets on Time is getting closer to launching and is raising funds for its development through an Indiegogo fundraiser. Some of the cool options you get for donating to this product in development is free use of the program for a year or forever. The amount of free usage depends on your donation.
There are quite a few programs out there that already let us micro-schedule our lives. In many cases, you could just list your pet too. However, this program will also be set up for you to provided limited access of information for your pet’s care providers. If you have a dog walker or groomer, they can see what they need to see from vaccination records to allergies. A veterinarian may have access to pretty much everything – if you want. (See original story.)
In our two kitty household, it’s pretty easy to keep tabs on things. But when we had a senior pet in the house, it would have been nice to have a better way to keep tabs on medications and to log changes in behavior etc. It also would have come in handy to have more access to our own veterinary records when we spent Christmas Day at the emergency vet.
If you have multiple pets, especially those going to groomers, agility, the vet and more, this is really quite awesome. We’re also working on some food issues with one pet and it’s nice to have a spot to keep track of what she is eating and how she reacts. You can log on by computer or smart phone access your account.
