Connectyx Technologies Announces Introduction of MyPetsPHR for Veterinary Records

Pet Personal Health Records, MyPetsPHR, to Provide Owner Information and Individual Veterinary Records Including Vaccination History

STUART, FL--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2012) - Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CTYX) ("Connectyx") www.connectyx.com, the manufacturer and distributor of the MedFlash, an innovative Personal Health and Wellness Management System (ePHM) designed for maintaining personal health records (PHR), announced today that Connectyx Technologies has initiated development of its PHR for pets, MyPetsPHR, using the Internet Web domain www.mypetsphr.com. Similar to MedFlash, the MyPetsPHR will offer a secure web portal suite for a pet's medical information (shots, vaccines) in addition to a USB flash drive and smartphone applications with Scan code capability. The MyPetsPHR will include the pet owner's contact information to expedite a pet's recovery when lost. MyPetsPHR will also include Pet Benefits, Pet Insurance, Access to Pet-Friendly Hotels, Dog Parks and more.

It is an inescapable observation by both pet owners and non pet owners that many pet lovers care about their pet and treat them just as a child or partner. With this in mind, a product like MyPets PHR that offers convenience and added benefits for the pet owner along with safety for their pet is a compelling addition to the pet care marketplace.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Americans spend more than $60 billion on their pets annually. The average annual cost per pet is from $355 for a small dog to $650 for a large dog. Cat owners spend about $495 annually.

Ronn Schuman, CEO of Connectyx Technologies, said, "The applicability of product similar to MedFlash with pets is obvious. Anyone who has taken their pet to be groomed at a PetSmart or PetWorld has had the experience of being asked for all immunization records that are necessary for review for the protection of the groomer. With MyPetsPHR, this requirement is easily fulfilled without having to remember to take paper files on your pet's medical history down to the store."

Schuman continued, "The obvious benefit of having a convenient pet owner contact is a clear plus too. All contact information can be included, not just what can fit on a small dog or cat identification tag. Whether it is both owners' cell phones and business phones, any and all helpful information can be accessed to contact the worried pet owner as soon as possible."

In addition to the initiation of development for www.mypetsphr.com, Connectyx has contracted with a web development group, Winduppixel.com in Chicago, IL, to update and modernize the MedFlash consumer website, www.medflash.com. Ronn Schuman, CEO of Connectyx Technologies, said, "We expect to unveil the new MedFlash website over the next 60 days as we collaborate with Winduppixel's web developers to add a fresh updated look designed for easier navigation for our consumer portal."
