Those of us who have pets have all been there: We’ve got a question or concern about our four-legged friend that isn’t quite serious enough for a vet visit, but a simple Google search isn’t giving us what we need. For those moments and more, there’s a new app on the market that places real-life vets at our fingertips, at any hour of the day or night. Vet On Demand is the first mobile app to offer personalized, real-time access to vet care through such a platform, and it’s helping pet owners rest easy knowing they can get a qualified opinion with just a swipe and a click when they need one.


The app offers live video chats with licensed veterinarians, determinations on whether an office visit is needed or not and access to second opinions when you want to make absolutely sure you’re on the right path to fixing a problem. Users can even create pet profiles complete with digital health records, making it easier than ever to get accurate opinions and treatment options based on our furry pals’ medical histories.


Nothing major going on with Fido, but got a few quick pet care questions? No problem! Real-time answers about everything from foods and treats to housebreaking and basic training are available through the app too. If you just need extra peace of mind that you’re making the right decisions when it comes to taking good care of your feline, canine or other domestic companion, it’s nice to know you’ve got all the answers you need right there in your pocket… along with a handful of treats for good behavior.

DL it: Free on iOS, coming soon to Android
