PitPat Friendly Practices

PitPat was designed with vets, and is a great tool for both vets and veterinary nurses. If you’ve not yet experienced it, please contact [email protected]. We know how busy you are, so we’ve made it really easy for you to work with us. There are three main indications for PitPat: Weight, Exercise and Feeding:

Weight management (FREE)

Your clients can use our free PitPat app as part of any weight management regime or clinic process that you use or recommend. As a vet, you can work with the client to set an ideal weight, walk through a body condition score, prescribe a weekly weight loss percentage, and then let our app take care of helping your client to weigh and record the patients weight. They won’t forget what you recommend, and when you next see them they’ll have a full record of their progress to show you.

Exercise management (£39)

By upgrading to a PitPat Dog Activity Monitor, your clients can get all the benefits of our exercise management system including a personalised (customisable) goal recommendation, measurement of exercise type and intensity, and proven encouragement and incentives. Our exercise management system is ideal for ALL canine breeds (including puppies and new dog owners). It is also especially useful for post-operative care, rehabilitation and helping clients manage the mobility of older patients. Our activity data can be used to help spot signs of stiffness, discomfort and injury, enabling you both to see the changes and then investigate and treat the cause.

Feeding management

Our app and Weighing Bowl with integrated scales helps clients feed their dogs the right amount. It calculates the feeding recommendation specific to each dog using their breed, age, weight, sex, whether they are neutered and measured activity levels from our activity monitor. No more guesswork! It also supports weight loss and weight gain targets if you have set an ideal weight for the patient. The app works seamlessly with PitPat Food and we offer a range of life stage recipes (Puppy, Adult, Senior) and a recipe to support weight management (Light).

Recommending PitPat

Recommending that a client downloads our app or buys PitPat from our web shop is the easy, no-cost way to get started. You don’t have to buy and hold stock, and there’s no complication. We have a special scheme setup for this called the Vet&Nurse Scheme where we provide you with the support materials for free and you earn great rewards for you, your team and your practice for each recommendation.
