VetMath is a fast medical (medication) calculator. Functioning is similar to a spreadsheet of drug calculations. Just input the patient weight, select which drug list you are interested in, and the next screen shows you the calculated doses for that drug list. More detailed information about the calculations for each drug is available on another screen as desired.
One of the most powerful and useful aspects of this application is YOUR ability to create YOUR OWN lists of drugs with your own preferred doses. Because you create and save your preferred drug lists ahead of time, you end up saving time during the busy work day for both daily routine calculations and for those infrequent drug usage times as well (e.g. species or conditions you don't see on a daily basis).
•Calculation of medication/drug doses.
•Create new drug lists
•Add, remove, sort, and edit drugs in each drug list as desired.
•For each drug include the drug concentration if available for the particular drug, and your preferred drug dose. You can also add an optional dose range (low dose and high dose), an optional maximum total dose, and optional notes for each drug.
•Separate medical notes can be added/saved.
•No internet connection needed.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VERSION 3.0:
•Currently supported dose units are mg/kg, mg/kg/hr, ml/kg, ml/kg/hr, and units/kg, units/kg/hr.
•Included are sample drug lists for canine and feline emergency (CPR) and antibiotic drug calculations. You can change (add, edit, sort, or remove) these drugs lists to create your own version of these lists so that you have the parameters (e.g. doses) that you typically use.
•Also included are examples of other organizing Categories (Equine, Exotics, Food Animal, and Other) that do not have any current drug lists associated with them. You can edit (add to, edit, sort, remove) these as desired as well. Depending upon which species you see in practice you may want to add drug lists to these or remove them as desired.
•Edit Categories and Super Categories: Click the "Info" button from the main VetMath view.
•Edit Drugs: From the main VetMath view, select the desired drug Category. Then select the upper right “options” button and select edit from the options.

Ratings and Reviews
Vet math very useful app -read description!
I treat a large variety of species- in particularly, small exotic mammals. This app allows me to make separate categories for each species and then subdivide into anesthesia drugs, analgesics, antibiotics, etc. You do input your specific drug info and it is highly customizable. It's better than a preloaded formulary because after you enter the weight then your doses are calculated and ready to go. If you are a practicing veterinarian this app can help your efficiency.
Expensive but still great
I absolutely love this app and use it daily. I highly recommend downloading and using. My favorite aspect is it does not come pre-loaded with dosages, but you put your preferred dosages in.
This app is great! Those of u who expected all of the drugs used in a animal hospital to be already loaded I can see how u would be disappointed but this does have all the drugs we use avalible to be added into app but does require putting ml/kg and so on that ur practice uses. If this app had every drug it would be harder to get calculations quick because u would have to scroll through all the drugs to find the one u want! This app is made to be modified to your practices needs so those of u interested in this app this is a great app but expect to add the drugs most frequently used for ur practice. On behalf of my veterinay practice and all the furry friends we treat thank u to whom ever made this app it has really helped our very fast pace veterinary practice!
