Vet Appidemic: An Equine App Explosion

Friday, September 20, 2013

The Veterinary Appidemic rolls on! In this article, we’ll continue to cover the Veterinary Advances suite of apps. In case you missed it, here is part one of the Veterinary Advances apps on the popular Equine Drugs app.


The following are excerpts provided by Kevin Corley, BVM&S, PhD, DACVIM, DACVECC, MRCVS:

Introducing Our Second App: Equine Lab

Laboratory normal values and the interpretation of abnormal results are frequent questions from my colleagues. Personally, I always found it annoying to have to keep trying to find normal values for unusual tests like coagulation tests. 


So, soon after Equine Drugs launched, Equine Lab was born.


From the ordinary to the less than once a year test – all the normal values and clinical interpretation at your fingertips for over 230 different lab tests.


This app includes variations for foals, thoroughbreds in training, and pregnant mares. It is fully customizable and has been bought by the British Equine Veterinary Association for their members.


Price: $29.99 (free for certain member organizations) 


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.

A Guide to our Growing Stable of Equine Apps


And it mushroomed from there! We now have an expanding library of equine apps (8 in total – do you have them all?) from our expert contributing authors.


And that’s not all. Some new apps (one small animal app and another equine app), both from new expert authors, are currently in the works. 


Below is a survival guide to the other currently available apps for techy equine veterinary professionals: 

Equine Radiography

This app is complete with text and diagrams to aid positioning, an exposure guide for each view, and an example radiograph. This is the app that will help you take first class radiographs of horses.


Price: $9.99


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.


Equine Reproductive Ultrasound

A complete guide to ultrasound of the reproductive cycle of the mare and early pregnancy diagnosis – using high-quality text, ultrasound images and ultrasound video loops.


Price: $19.99


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.

Advanced Equine Reproductive Ultrasound

This app helps you with fetal sexing at 55-70 and 110-140 days from multiple different planes, diagnose twins, twin reduction, uterine and ovarian diseases.


The app provides high quality text, ultrasound images, and ultrasound video loops.


Price: $29.99


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.

Equine Techniques

As the saying goes, “see one, do one, teach one” – but what if you have never seen a technique done and need to perform it?


This app uses high-quality photos and videos to show you how to perform 54 techniques in equine medicine from the everyday (such as blood collection from the facial sinus) to the unusual (such as posterior ethmoidal nerve block for headshakers).


Both the British Equine Veterinary Association and Equine Veterinarians Australia have bought the app for their members.


Price: $24.99 (free for some member organizations) 


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.

Equine Joint Injections

This app provides full text and illustrations on how to perform synoviocentesis including the arthroscopic approach to joints.


This app has also been bought by the British Equine Veterinary Association for their members. 


Price: $24.99 (free for some member organizations) 


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.

Foal CPR

This is a free app detailing CPR in the foal both for veterinarians and for horse owners. Foal CPR has a rhythm track to keep the thoracic compressions fast enough and the ventilation slow enough! We did several foal CPR attempts in the 2013 season, and we always used the app to help us get the timing right. 


Price: Free 


Download & Further Information: App website, available on iOS.


Stay tuned for Part 3 where we will detail the currently available small animal apps by Veterinary Advances.
