If you own pets, you’re probably used to getting one of those reminder cards in the mail from your vet’s office. But let’s be honest: those little cards aren’t the best at grabbing your attention or helping you keep track of important physicals or vaccinations.
Pet Pal, developed by Polymorphic Ranch, is an all-in-one solution for managing your pet’s health history. Whether you have one conventional pet or a whole family of exotic creatures, this app is probably the best solution you’ll find for tracking vitals and maintaining a schedule of vet visits.
For every animal you own, you can enter and record the following data into the Pet Pal iPhone app:
- Biological classification lookup based on species or simple name search
- Genetic Variation ( Breed / Morph / Color Form )
- Pet Attributes (Pedigree, Spayed / Neutered, Ectothermic, Venomous)
- Vet contact
- Vet care tracking
- Pedigree details (Registered name, Registration ID, Sire, Dam, Breeder)
- Email notes to pet sitters.
- Set reminders for any pet or habitat related activities
- View pet records in list form or calendar form
In addition to all kinds of personal info about your beloved pet, you can also set up a feeding schedule – a perfect way to remind yourself about your pet’s dietary needs or keep track of when to give them their next dose of medication.
One of the coolest parts of the Pet Pal iPhone app is the growth chart, where you are able to track how large your favorite critter has become.
Each status update in Pet Pal can be augmented with a PDF file attachment or photo attachment as well as a full page of textual data, which is perfect for tracking vet records or pedigree info.
If you have a single pet, you might not need Pet Pal for iPhone. However, if you have a whole pile of animals (especially persnickety little reptiles that have specific temperature and humidity demands), you absolutely need Pet Pal.
Pet Pal is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
