Mobile Health Goes to the Dogs

Mobile Health Goes to the DogsActiv4pets, providers of online and mobile platforms that give pet parents easy access to their pet’s health information along with web-based veterinary consultations, has just announced its new shelter partnership program to provide their platform to pet adopters and shelters across the nation.

According to this morning’s media announcement, shelters that partner with Activ4pets can offer the service to adopters at a dramatically reduced rate, cutting down on paperwork and paving the way for new pet parents to engage with and easily manage the health of their new pets.

“Partnering with humane societies and providing our mobile pet health app to new pet adopters has always been an important part of Activ4pets’ mission,” Florent Monssoh, CEO and founder of Activ4Pets, is quoted in the release. “We want to lend a hand to the community organizations working to save the lives of these animals and empower new pet parents to full and easily engage with the medical history of their new pets for better health and lifelong wellness.”

The partnership program will save shelter staff time in looking up and organizing pet medical history, automatically transferring each pet’s health information from the shelter management system to Activ4pets secure servers. Once the pet is adopted, the new pet parents get Activ4pets’ web and mobile platform, giving them instant access to their pre-loaded information about their new family member including age, breed, adoption date, allergies, vaccinations, medications, and much more. The platform also offers low cost veterinary consultations that can be conducted over webchat in their own home.

The program has already made a tremendous difference with some of its first partner shelters, including the Humane Society of Broward County. “When I learned about Activ4Pets, I knew their technology would be a game changer,” said Christopher Agostino, President and CEO for the Humane Society of Broward County. “Activ4Pets has helped our staff save countless hours of administration and enabled our shelter to generate significant revenue. Our adopters love the smartphone app and we are thrilled they have this modern, engaging tool to help care for their new pets.”
