PetsMD Announces Symptom Checker iPhone Application

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - PetsMD.com, the number one name in free online pet health information, today unveiled their newest consumer friendly feature, the PetsMD Symptom Checker iPhone Application. "Our users have told us that they love the Symptom Checker application and want to take it with them on their iPhone," says Tina Cannon, President and CEO. "Pet owners wanted to have the health information they need at their fingertips, at the park, the river, camping or wherever they take their pet."

"Quality vet approved content is important to our users and making PetsMD Symptom Checker app was a natural progression for us at PetsMD," says, Christi Scovel, Chief Veterinary Editor. "We want to be with pet lovers, wherever the adventure takes them."

Over the past few months, PetsMD partnered with Phunware and spent countless hours designing and developing the Symptom Checker iPhone application. The result is a fully functional feature that allows pet owners to have key health information at their fingertips. PetsMD's Mobile Symptom Checker helps you be better informed and make the right decisions -- on demand when you need it most. Whether you're out at the park, on the lake, at home or on the go, PetsMD's Mobile Symptom Checker is there for both you and your pets.
