Finding a veterinarian just got easier with Petsecure's new Vet Locator app. Available as a free download in the iTunes Store, the app searches the user's current location to help him or her find the closest veterinary practice. Petsecure is the first pet health insurance company in Canada to develop an app for Canadian pet owners.

"This is just the start of Petsecure venturing into the world of mobile," said Petsecure's Mike Girardin, E-Commerce Manager. "Easy to use with a simple format, the app will grow over time to include new features and expanded capabilities. We'll be listening to our customers to see where they want us to take this."

The Petsecure Vet Locator app helps users find contact details of veterinary practices near their current location. They can choose to call the practice, make an appointment, get instant directions, or save the listing to their favourites to bring up quickly at a later time.

The Petsecure Vet Locator app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and is optimized for iPhone 5. Petsecure plans to follow shortly with a BlackBerry and Android app.
