What information does a pet health record contain?
A pet health record includes every piece of health information from your pet’s medical history, such as prescriptions, vaccinations, allergies, surgery reports, conditions, test results, screenings, X-Rays, MRIs, CT scans, plus insurance information, adoption information (if applicable), date of birth and much more. Please find more information about pet health records here.
Where do I access my pet’s health record?
Members can access their pet’s health record from anywhere in the world using any device with an internet connection. Simply go the Activ4Pets website and click “Sign In” to enter the platform. You can also access the information using the Activ4Pets mobile app (available on iPhone and Android).
What is Medical Records Assistance/MRA?
Medical Records Assistance (or MRA) is the process of retrieving all your pet’s health information from your veterinarian/s. MRA is included with Activ4Pets premium membership at no extra cost. You can find out more about MRA here.
Why do I need a mobile pet health record?
A mobile pet health record is like a baby book for your pet. It stores your animal’s entire health history as well as insurance information, food plans, pet photos and much more. Many of us have paper records that often get misplaced or lost. A mobile pet record puts those records instantly at your fingertips. Put simply, it’s the most convenient way to access information about your pet when you need it most. For a more complete answer to this question, please see our article on the subject here.
How does a pet health record save me money?
The ability to peruse your pet’s health history 24/7 provides a huge potential to save money. Many pet owners get duplicate or early tests for their animals, simply because they have no record or memory of the previous test. Activ4Pets empowers members to avoid such instances by providing easy access to those records, and instant answers for any medical questions your vet may ask. Equally, because you can keep track of your animal wellness and set up health reminders, Activ4Pets can help resolve minor issues before they become major and more costly ones.
