Veterinary apps must choose whether to focus on the needs of pet owners or veterinarians. If a veterinary app aims to help pet owners find a nearby veterinarian, then it needs to be able to show users that there are plenty of local veterinarians available. Otherwise, if its goal is to help veterinarians with their business, then it should be able to give users a complete view of the veterinarian's schedule and availability. A veterinary app can use its growth strategy to differentiate itself from other veterinary apps by appealing directly to users of particular types (for example, cat owners or dog owners).
A veterinary app faces safety risks related to animal treatment. Your app will need to take steps to ensure that it meets local and national regulations for animal care and welfare, and you should also consider requirements for the security of veterinary records. You should consult with your vet in determining whether an app is a viable option for your practice.
