The new Health4Horses iPhone app makes it easy to manage your horse’s health needs, while being fun at the same time! It has multiple functions available, from helping you keep up-to-date with your horse’s vaccinations and worming, to tracking and recording a ride using GPS navigation. It’s so chock-full of practical and exciting features that it’s like five apps in one!
The main part of the app is called “My Stable”. Here you are able to record key information about your horse (or horses), including date of birth, sex and level of contact with other horses. From this information the app automatically calculates a vaccination protocol, tailored to your horse.
If your horse has been vaccinated against the Hendra virus, you can download your horse’s Hendra Vaccination Certificate after entering their microchip number. The vaccination certificate can then be emailed for record management or for registration at events where proof of Hendra vaccination is required.
My Stable also allows you to record your horse’s daily schedule, including feeding, exercise and grooming. Details of important contacts, such as your local vet, farrier and equine dentist can be recorded as well.
Track My Ride
A unique and exciting feature of the Health4Horses app is the Track My Ride tool. It uses GPS navigation so that you can track the route, duration and speed of each ride. You can use it to explore new routes safely and find your way back to your horse paddock after riding in an unfamiliar area. Details of each ride are stored in a history log. You can name each route and specify the horse you rode, then share the ride with friends through Facebook and Twitter.
Reminders & Calendar
The app has a handy reminders section, where the vaccination protocol for your horse is displayed, along with other regular health requirements such as worming, shoeing and dentistry.
All reminders are included on a calendar. For worming and vaccinations you can select the date of last treatment and set a reminder on the calendar for future treatments. With the calendar you can also note dates of competitions, appointments and events, so that you’re sure not to miss a thing!
Notifications & Latest News
There is a notifications section where general updates, important information such as details on any recent Hendra outbreaks, and latest equine promotions can be received. You can read equine industry stories through a direct news feed from Equestrian Life.
Equine Healthcare Products
To help keep your horse healthy, the app also has general information about horse healthcare products manufactured by Zoetis, including the range of Equivac® vaccinations and Equest® Plus Tape wormer.
