Great learning resource


I am a Ross University Veterinary Student. I use this app on almost all classes. I have found every term that I needed to learn in this app including medications. I would recommend it to anyone in the veterinary field. Thumbs up!

Great but could be updated

I love the whole aspect and design as a future goal setting vet and I love to just look up a word the only problem is the software which I don't mind too much but it does remind me of the old iPod 4 software

Great concept


I plan on being an animal educator, and I am starting my job quite soon and this will be helpful in many ways
