Want to know why your dog is scratching? Or perhaps why your cat is sneezing?
The petMD pet Symptom Checker allows you to easily search over 2,500 dog and cat health articles based on the symptoms your pet is experiencing.
Why is my pet scratching so much? How do I recognize skin conditions? What are roundworms and how do I treat them in my dog? Does my dog have kennel cough?
Find Answers to these questions and hundreds of others relating to your dog or cats health.
All articles are written and approved by veterinarians. Each article contains a detailed description explaining the condition, its symptoms, causes, diagnosis, the best treatment options combined with living and management of the condition, and prevention, if applicable.
And though every petMD article referenced on the Symptom Checker app is written and approved by veterinarians, it should not replace your own veterinarian. The petMD Symptom Checker is meant as a guide to help you understand conditions that may be affecting your pet. Always visit your veterinarian regularly to care for your pet’s health.

So far So Good
We just accessed this app for the first time. Ease of use is simple.
Although not a substitute for our fantastic Vet Clinic, it helps me be prepared for our visit. Or in an Emergency peace of mind and what is important to note prior to arrival.
A thought, on search results one of the most common infections in the intestine, Clostridial Enterotoxicosis in Dogs, was not listed at the top of search results. Had to scroll down quite a bit.
I really like this app. It's helped me with some minor problems with my dog or when she had a heart murmur. There were a lot of articles which helped me understand and sound smarter when I took my dog to the vet. I would like to see more farm animals in the pet selection because it's not very easy to get a vet around here. Anyways it's a good app.
I love how easy this app is to use!! You can put in symptoms and it shows you the possible diagnosis that you can if needed ask your vet about at the pets appt. It's nice to be able to have a peace of mind of what's wrong with your pet!! Thank you for this wonderful app!!
