Your Dogs Heart Resting Respiratory Rate
By Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co.KG
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app allows the user to count and record resting respiratory rate for a number of different pets and then facilitates transfer of the information to the pets veterinarian. A user may also elect to post the result on their facebook page or twitter
Good app, but please make an option to disable the “BARK!” sound
We use this to measure our cat’s respiratory rate. He has heart disease and we take his breathing count regularly. This app has been very helpful in tracking his rate over extended periods of time to share with the vet. The one and only complaint we have is the VERY LOUD BARK sound that plays when the timer counts down to zero. If the volume on the phone is any higher than 25% when the timer counts down to zero, the bark sound plays so loud that it startles both the cat and us. An option to disable the bark sound or choose a custom sound would be a great addition to this app.
Great app, timer alarm too loud
Wonderful app when tracking your pets respiratory rate. My vet recommended this and it's very easy to set up your pets info and track the results. You can even easily email them to your vet. My only suggestion for improvement is allow option for vibrate only or vibrate and sound when the timer runs out. The notification when time is up is a loud bark and it plays even when my iPhone is switched to silent. It startled my dog and me! Otherwise great and thank you for providing this!
Loud Barking Alarm but otherwise great
This is a great app. Great idea and easy to use. How neat that I can email results to my vet. As another reviewer mentioned, the loud bark timer alarm, which I can't turn down, is a real drawback. Sure it's a fun idea but not great for cats, or possible ailing or sensitive dogs. I have to wrap my hands around my phone to shield the noise while I'm counting breaths for my cat – pretty distracting. Please at least give us the option to change the sound or volume. Otherwise a very, very helpful app!
