New version of EQStable™ App by Zoetis offers customized Individualized Deworming plans and more!
User feedback prompts parasite risk questionnaire, tutorial video and personalized calendar at your fingertips
FLORHAM PARK, N.J., April 30, 2014 — Version 3.0 of the EQStable™ app from Zoetis offers new features based on user feedback.
“EQStable app users spoke and the Zoetis Equine Team listened,” said Kate Russo, marketing manager, U.S. Cattle and Equine Marketing, Zoetis. “The EQStable app updates are a direct result of the feedback received through the app, to offer the organization and health care information users want, in order to provide the best possible care for their horse or herd.”
The updated EQStable app is available for free at the Apple® App Store®. Among the new features is a deworming questionnaire to help horse owners determine their horse’s parasite risk profile and create an Individualized Deworming (ID) plan.
“The new AAEP Parasite Control Guidelines support that deworming paradigms have changed from the same rotation for every horse to a strategic approach with consideration to each horse’s individual risk factors. The Individualized Deworming Questionnaire was developed to assist horse owners in developing a current deworming approach,” Russo said. “Each situation is different so it important to work with your veterinarian to determine the appropriate seasonality and duration of all deworming products.
Its functionality allows horse owners to set dates to stay on track with a current and properly timed deworming program.
The calendar reminders don’t stop with deworming. The app allows users to set specific dates and customize reminders healthcare, events and trips.
The new version also offers a tutorial video for using the app. It’s broken down by chapters so you can find sections of the video that are most useful to you.
Users can enjoy all of the updates the app has to offer:
- Deworming questionnaire: Changes are within the My Stable/Events/Deworming sections. This new questionnaire helps determine an ID plan for a horse or herd.
