Animal Therapy App (Project Idea #3)

Problem Description:

     Everyone has a soft spot for their four-legged friend and no one likes to see them hurt.  When you finally get your beloved pet home from surgery they need rehabilitation therapy that can be both expensive and time consuming when taking them back and forth to the local animal rehab clinic.  Some people opt to instead do the rehab on their own based on pamphlets from their veterinarian or those found on the Internet.  This works well but it is hard to keep up with the constant changes each week to exercises, medications, and duration on paper.  Also people often forget to do it at all.  Creating a mobile application that could keep up with the daily and weekly changes and also remind pet owners ahead of time would be invaluable.

System Capabilities:

+ Features rehabilitation schedules that are commonly used
+ Allows fully customizable routines
+ Sends notifications to user prior to changes in routine and when medications are due or post operation appointments are coming up
+ Allows user to keep a photo library of surgery site to monitor swelling

Business Benefits:

+ Ensures pet receives full benefits of rehabilitation and receive medications on time
+ Saves the owner money
+ Easy to manage the rehab
+ Less to worry about


  1. I love it! I think this would be something that could work not only in a veterinary setting, but also in a human dr.'s office.

  2. Thanks with new mobile apps being created all the time it is really difficult to come up with something different and useful.
