Glitchy but works

The app has some bugs here and there but the doctor’s advices are great! Really easiest my anxiety about my cats and they also provide much more comprehensive and holistic recommendations than my usual vet visit where sometimes it can feel a bit rushed when they have too many cases on their hands.

Love the expert advice

I found this app when my Hiro had a limp after playing the the new puppy. Turns out he was being dramatic, but I LOVED that they were there for me and supported me in making the best decision for what he needed. It was the weekend and we were worried we’d have to go the the EV. They gave me advice and told me what to watch for to know exactly when he needed to go to the EV. We never did but followed up with our primary vet a few weeks later. The limp was gone, but just to be sure. :) Now I use the app regularly for questions about diet, exercise, and behavior. Things I can and do just Google, but the information can be overwhelming! Every vet has their own opinion of course, but it’s nice to just talk with someone and be assured your questions are truly answered. I love their articles too! Our primary vet wanted Hiro to go on a diet, and between the Experts and the articles answering my questions Hiro has just about reached his goal weight! Thank you!!

Highly recommended

I had a little scare regarding my kitty very late at night when only emergency clinic are open. I gave her a higher than recommended dose of a dewormer medication by accident and after reading possible outcomes of my mistake was very freaked out. She didn’t show any signs of overdose so I didn’t want to just take her to an emergency clinic so I found Kin and got to chat with Dr Heidi Taylor.
Dr Taylor was very kind and understanding have a great advise based on research she was kind enough to look up.
All and all great experience with the app
