From Equine Veterinary Education, 23(2):105, 2011 (reviewing version 1.2):
"I must admit that initially I was sceptical on having to use an iPhone App to find drug doses. However, its ease of use and with a full range of drugs listed I found myself using it more and more."
"...it delivers a good value basic, user friendly formulary that is ideal for checking up on doses and specific drug interactions/side effects."

A must-have app for the veterinarian or student!

I am really happy with this app. It's originally made for the iPhone or iPod Touch, but guess what!.... It works equally well on the iPad, which is what I own. It functions beautifully and now I have all equine drug references at my disposal. So far, so good... no bugs. It seems to work flawlessly.

This app is really well-made and informative, with hundreds of drugs for reference from A - Z. You can also find drugs according to its category (ie, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, etc), and it also enables you to calculate the drug dosage by inputting the body weight and what not. Each drug reference comes with a small set of notes, which is equally helpful.

Bravo, Equine Advances, and thanks for this amazing application!!

The Razor Blade Model

I purchased this app and started using in 2011 or 2012 on the recommendation of a prominent internal medicine specialist from Texas. The first 6 years were wonderful and full of useful drug calculations, safety/efficacy data, and research! However like many companies a purchase of software doesn’t equal a purchase anymore, rather instead they decide to go with the “razor blade” model and charge a subscription fee. I find this contractually objectionable and borderline irresponsible to the equine profession. Is your goal to make money with the app or provide a service to your colleagues? I do find the app very useful for young equine vets especially in their internship. I hope one day the developers and Dr. Corley will keep their contractual word to the vets that gave this app a chance in the first place! It would very well be a 5 star app in that case.

Developer Response ,

We changed the App to a subscription only model in early 2018, as we were not able to keep with database up to date with the one-off pricing. With an App that so many professionals rely on, it is vital to keep the information current to protect the welfare of their patients. All existing users got over a year free (to the value in excess of their original purchase price) when the App switched to a subscription model.
Unfortunately, it was unsustainable for us to keep the database current without the switch in pricing model - and it is not possible to leave some users with out of date or possibly wrong information that has the potential to do harm to patients.
Before making the change, we surveyed a number of users as to whether they would prefer that we close down the App (ie not update it for the iPhone X series and new iOS versions), or continue but with a subscription model. The vast majority elected for a subscription model. We apologise if you do not agree with their decision.
The App has substantially changed since 2010 with a large amount of new information, including competition withdrawal times and information about the use in pregnancy.
Please contact us off-line at info@veterinaryadvances.com and we will do our best to address your concerns.

Monthly Subscription Required to use this app $4.50

Disappointed to read only after paying for this app, that I also need to subscribe monthly for $4.50 if I want to see more than 10 drugs. Useless app without subscription

Developer Response ,

The App is free to download and preview. A subscription is only required if you wish to see the full database. The subscription allows us to frequently update the database to keep the information current and reliable. The database was updated 5 times in August 2020 and has already been updated again in September. The current price is $2.49 a month and it has never been higher than that in the 2 years that this has been a subscription App.
