Minor bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
It forced me to put profile of Lusea in but when I had filed in all fields it would not update. It kept telling me I needed a guid? I couldn’t leave the page. I had to close our app to leave it. Needs work.
App crashes, mixed service
The 2 star is mostly for the app crashing all the time when I try to chat with a vet. I mean that’s pretty much the only useful function of the app! Lucky that they still have a web app, although I got disconnected and reconnected a lot throughout my conversation.
As with the service, it’s a mixed bag, but I still got useful information from them every time. I’ve had a doctor who was very nice, very patient, and spent a decent amount of time with me on the phone when my cat was seriously ill and was not responding to treatments. She helped me both informatively and emotionally. Another time I was chatting with a vet, and I felt kind of rushed. It may have been because the connection kept dropping so the vet wasn’t sure if I was still there or not. I still got very useful information, but I guess my previous experience simply set too high of a bar.
I was supposed to get an email with a link for a one year whiskerdocs subscription immediately after my 24petwatch premium purchase. Never got a link. After an hour of waiting, I ended up paying $5 to send a message to a vet over whiskerdocs anyway, and they promised to reply within 24 hours. It’s been over 24 hours and I’ve gotten nothing. I also STILL haven’t received the link to register my whiskerdocs account. I’ve contacted customer service and… nothing. It’s incredibly frustrating because I can’t get into a vet in my area bc they’re so booked up, and I need help determining whether my pet’s issue is serious enough to wait 8 hours at a pet emergency center in a room of sick animals in the middle of covid.
TLDR; Whiskerdocs is unresponsive and unreliable
