Revolutionise horse health management with new Zoetis HorseDialog App
Zoetis has launched a sensational new horse healthcare and management app. HorseDialog not only allows you to keep your horse’s records, care and exercise schedules at your fingertips but also helps you and your vet to work together to monitor your horse’s health routine.
HorseDialog is a highly intuitive app that can be linked to your own vet practice, accessed with a unique Vet ID code and is available for download on iOS and Android mobile devices from the Apple App Store http://apple.co/2eb5mYe and Google Play Store http://bit.ly/2dIDqaK . By following the brief tutorials on each screen you can quickly and securely input all the essential data for every horse in your care, including passport number, microchip ID and insurance policy details. This important information is directly accessible to your vet via a secure web dashboard. Selected data within your horse’s Care Schedule can be sent by email to others involved with the care of your horse, such as your yard manager, horse sitter or partner.
HorseDialog’s highly organised care schedule allows you to input key details about your horse’s personal routine. You can add the things you do daily or weekly for your horse – such as feeding, exercise, turnout and medication. You can schedule events that happen every few days, months or annually in your horse’s lifetime such as regular medication, vaccinations, farriery, worming and weight measurement. You can even add past events for multiple horses – such as last date of a faecal worm egg count – to build a thorough history for every horse.
Specific contacts for each horse can be stored, such as the name and number of their farrier, rider or yard manager and push notifications can be set up to make sure you don’t miss any appointments or daily tasks. Such a detailed log of up-to-date information at the fingertips of both you and your vet can help with decisions on the best course of action for future healthcare and management of your horse.
Horse owner Grace Godwin trialled the app with Endell Equine Hospital during the summer. She said: “In my view HorseDialog is an accessible app for horse owners because it puts the information I need in one easy place. Initially I was apprehensive that it would be time consuming to input all the details but the design is so intuitive that it takes seconds to add updates. Being able to share information on feeding, medication, routine and exercise with my vet at Endell Equine Hospital was very reassuring. It was also a big time saver to be able to share all this information when going away on holiday, rather than having to sit down and write a long note about Freckles and Vesta’s management routine.”
