Horse Side Vet Guide App Description

HORSE SIDE VET GUIDE IS THE MOST HIGHLY RATED HORSE HEALTH APP AVAILABLE! - Do you have questions about your horse’s health? Search for answers in HSVG, a massive & constantly growing database of equine health info – conveniently available to you “horse side.” HSVG was created by Doug Thal DVM DABVP, a lifelong horseman & veterinarian that has practiced exclusively equine veterinary medicine for over 20 years & is board certified in equine practice. HSVG provides helpful information about equine health from the moment you notice a problem with your horse - My Observation.  It contains practical advice, suggested skills, and questions to discuss with your vet. HSVG is of value in an emergency and non-emergency, and it helps you distinguish between the two. HSVG also contains dozens of high quality instructional videos, and other media designed to enable you to become an active participant in ensuring your horse’s good health. However, HSVG is not structured as a simple decision tree that takes you down a singular path based on your input. It is not a substitute for your local equine veterinarian. It does not, and cannot, anticipate and address all of the subtle variations and unique circumstances associated with your horse’s health. That is your veterinarian's job. __________________________ - Make better decisions about your horse’s health. - Increase the quality of communication between you and your vet. - Follow a logical thought process for addressing any equine heath care problem. - Utilize a quality alternative to Dr. Google. Ok – so what is Horse Side Vet Guide exactly? HSVG is a custom-built relational database of equine health information that contains concise information about common problems to rare diseases. Records are contained in 1 of 9 categories: - My Observations - Vet Diagnostics - Vet Diagnoses - Vet Treatments - My Skills - My Supplies - Terms & Topics - Media - Outside Resources These records are extensively interlinked, providing a uniquely contextualized approach to any equine health issue. We continuously add and update the records in HSVG. We have placed great emphasis on completing the MY OBSERVATIONS records first. You can find "full access" records with a keyword search, in the alphabetical browse lists, and hyperlinked inside other records. Incomplete (or "partial access") records are listed inside full access records, with no hyperlink. Many other records are hidden from view, and will be available later. After we complete a partial or hidden record we change it to "full access" and it becomes immediately available to you after the app has been synchronized to your mobile device. Please see our website for more information about this application.

Horse Side Vet Guide App Reviews

  • Used to be my number one app. But videos have stopped working

    By 123lost&broken
    I have recommended this to every horse owner i know. But lately, the videos have stopped working. When you click on them, it kicks you out of the app. How do you Learn if you are ejected out of the app? And the app itself has only been updated 2 years ago. It needs an update.
  • Must for horse owners

    By Horse Called Man
    Wonderful app. Gives lots of helpful information and recommendations. Just used to aid me when my horse choked. Tell you what information (and how to get the info) you should have when you call the vet. And gives you additional info you can try if the first treatment doesn’t work. Includes great illustrations and ‘how to’ videos .
  • Essential for every horse owner

    By Shelly.Mc
    I stumbled across the website — loved it-so I was thrilled to see they had a mobile app as well. Well worth the 4.99 to get it. I love the Horse health evaluation checklist and form, plus the videos that show you how to do it are so helpful. This is one app I will never delete.

    One if the few apps worth the $, it is crammed with tons of interesting information. The videos and diagrams are great, easy reference at the barn. My vet told me about it. Recommending it to all my friends.
  • Awesome app!

  • A Must Have

    By Mahtys_mom
    This app is an amazing resource to have on your phone. It has so much valuable information, structured in a way that makes it easy to access. You can tell how much time and effort the creators of this app are putting into it. It is constantly updated with new information. I just can't say enough good things about it. Thank you for making this resource available!
  • Worst app

    By Nicoleld02
    Every time you look something up it simply tells you the obvious or to go to the vet .. Well, hell, I could have done that on my own! It does not explain what the issue is from, it does not give suggestions what to try before going to the vet, and half the time it does not have what you are looking for ! It's a waste!

    Have used this app over and over. Great information, illustrations, and videos. Suggested a change for search engine and it was made in less than 12 hours. Very responsive with great information. Horse people have needed this info with this ease of access for a long time.
  • So far so good

    By Westerndressagerider
    So far I like this app and after being in the vet field for some 27 odd years it seems to be pretty informative. However I did notice one little thing that should be clarified. If you're told not to use a drug or do something to a horse I feel like you should explain why you shouldn't use that drug or use that technique. For example you say " Acepromazine should not be used in stallions". Why??? You should explain why simply because it really should be used with caution in geldings for the same reason. And that reason is paralysis of the penis and the inability to retract the penis. All stallion and gelding owners need to know this for the same reason. No one wants that to happen to a male horse. The implications are not so good. I would think liability on your part would warrant a simple explanation. Otherwise a good app. I've enjoyed perusing this app so far.
