Mobile Apps & Petcare

There are multiple petcare related mobile apps available on the market that cater to different needs. But if you are looking to undertake petcare app development, you should opt for a complete feature-rich app.

Mobile apps can provide services such as pet tracking, Pet food tracking, remote pet monitoring, and other such features. Ideally, most pet owners would prefer to have one app providing all the solutions instead of having to download different apps for each feature.

Types of Petcare Apps That Can Be Developed:

  • Pet walking app
  • Pet training app
  • Pet tracking app
  • Pet networking app
  • Pet health app
        • Pet exercising app
  • Pet e-Commerce app

Real-Time Dashboard:

In the main screen, a real-time dashboard will be shown with the latest notifications about the pet, upcoming vaccines, medications and doctor’s visits along with the pet’s feeding time and activity time. The location dashboard will show where the pet is right now.

Friends List:

Pet owners can create a friend list for their respective pets and follow each other for photos, videos, and status updates on the pets.

Prescriptions & Vaccinations Tracking:

For the pet’s health, the app should provide timely updates on the pet’s prescriptions, medications and vaccination schedule.

Location Tracking:

Pets can be given a tracking device which then provides real-time GPS information to the ap which allows the pet owner to track their pets in case the pets get lost or during walks.

Push Notifications:

Push notification on location, social updates, vaccination and medication, and pretty much anything the owner needs to be aware of. Timely push notifications can be used for reminders and updates to the pet owner.

With feeding monitoring, the owners can keep a track of their pet’s food consumption, favorite food items and calorie intake. It will work like a diet planner app and it can also alert the owner to health issues.


Pet owners can generate weekly, monthly and annual reports on the pet’s health, feeding, medications, and vaccinations and other tracked parameters.

Document Storage:

For the pet owner, a single resource for documents related to the pet such as ownership certificates, medical certificates can be stored in the app so that they can be made available immediately when needed.

Dedicated pet exercise programs with pet-focused tutorials and videos, graphics.

Emergency Help:

Emergency contact for veterinarians, police, and other authorities in case there is an emergency.

Pet e-Commerce:

Monetization of Petcare App

We see three ways to monetize the app:


Users can be charged subscriptions for the app or premium features.

Product-based Monetization:

You can offer your own in-house products such as apparel, food, and other items to monetize from your user base.

Ad based Model:

You can run ads on the app and generate revenue from that.
