EM&I Launches PetCentral Application to Help Pet Owners With Vital Care Services

Available in Apple App Store and Android Google Play Market; Proceeds to Be Donated to World Vets for Global Veterinary Aid

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - Aug 6, 2012) - EM&I today announced the availability of a new mobile application for smartphones and tablets that allows pet owners to capture and organize their pets' vital information, appointments, medications and service providers.

Whether in their home area or on travel with their pets, PetCentral allows pet owners to easily locate nearby veterinarians and providers for a dozen other vital services like parks, groomers, trainers, walkers and sitters. The application is simple to install and easy to understand.

Other PetCentral benefits include:

  • Enter and track pet appointments and medications, annotated with personal notes.
  • Receive email reminders for upcoming appointments. 
  • Contact a vet during an emergency -- with emails already containing pets' vital statistics. 
  • Quickly find and contact nearby resources to get immediate help when out of town.
  • Find airline pet policies and pet friendly hotels when planning a trip.
  • Online resources for help and suggestions with medical care.

PetCentral was created by EM&I and is available in both the Apple App Store and the Android Google Play Market.

"Our mission in developing PetCentral is to leverage the power and portability of mobile devices to assist pet owners worldwide," said Jim Fitzwilliam, President of EM&I. "Whether at home or on-the-go, this easy to use application provides fingertip access to information that pet owners can effectively use to access and manage their pets' providers, resources and records. As an owner of multiple pets myself, I appreciate having this information at my fingertips, so that I don't forget to do what I am supposed to do!"

EM&I is also going to donate $1 from every sale of PetCentral for the first 60 days -- up to a maximum of $1 million -- to World Vets, an organization that provides veterinary aid to animals in developing nations across the globe.
