About the project
When was the last time the farrier came by? Should the horse be vaccinated already? And what was the withdrawal period for this medicine? A horse’s owner has many things to remember and take care of. Especially with racehorses, the withdrawal periods for medicines and operations must be followed carefully. Moreover, their wellbeing is followed by observing changes in weight and temperature.
If all this information is written down on papers and post-its, it’s difficult for the owners and grooms to see the whole picture on the horse’s health. For example, long-term weight changes go easily unnoticed. Also, different countries and competitions have different rules for competitors, which makes it even harder to know if the horse is eligible or not.
Paulus & Co is a company specialising in veterinary medicine and digitizing the tasks related to animal care and medication. Paulus & Co, together with Bitfactor’s specialists, developed the Paulus application to help manage important health information and medical bookkeeping related to horses. The service will soon be extended to other domestic animals and pets.
