Ratings and Reviews
I am a fourth year vet student (soon to be intern) and this app is fantastic- to have this much information in my pocket with me at all times is invaluable.
I have often found myself trying to look up diseases via my iPhone or iPad while on site or at Uni but struggle to find concise and reliable information, especially if data reception is sporadic.
I would definitely recommend this app to any person working with livestock.
You will be charged for this app, problem is I did not see this information anywhere before I downloaded and now I can not find out if it is a “one off” charge or a monthly charge.
This handbook is easy to use and provides a ton of useful information for vets working with livestock.
