Please read these general instructions on how to use the Vetaid app. It has been designed and created as an aid diagnostic training and to supply information on animal health.
The general conditions as laid out are to define the terms and conditions for the provision of Vetaid application and the terms and conditions for its use by its users.
Access to and use of the Vetaid application implies and requires acceptance and compliance with these general conditions by the user, who thereby acknowledges full understanding of them. Acceptance is effected by ticking the box which precedes mention of “I acknowledge having read and accepted the general conditions of use of the services. “.
In this case, ticking the appropriate box is deemed to carry the same weight and value as a handwritten signature. The user who does not intend to comply in whole or in part with the general conditions must cede use of the Vetaid application and its services.
The director of the site www.vetaid.net, reserves the right to update, modify or supplement these general conditions and the attached documents.
1-Restrictions on use: Use of the Vetaid application and its data is limited to veterinarians and veterinary students who have graduated or are about to be; its use on a phone or tablet is only possible after prior registration on the site www.vetaid.net :
- the selection of device must be made before or during registration on www.vetaid.net
- The reference for accepting a registration request is provided by the file and the SAS-system set up and kept up to date by the National Order of Veterinarians for France, as defined in the agreement signed with the CNOV.
- Similar systems for validation of veterinary status will pertain for foreign veterinarians.
The use of the Vetaid application and its data is restricted to the exclusive personal use of the said data by the registered veterinarian for his own needs; use is restricted to the practice of veterinary medicine by that registered veterinarian.
- Nature of the services: The services offered by the Vetaid.net site include the provision through the Vetaid application of a diagnostic aid, training and information on health issues of bovine animals. The Vetaid application is intended exclusively for student and qualified veterinarians.
This application provides information on clinical bovine diseases, but also information likely to help a veterinarian who has previously examined a bovine animal which has presented as being ill; these clinical suspicions are accompanied by information such as:
- diseases that he may suspect, given the information entered into the system,
- The calculation of a concordance score between the patient and the disease in its typical form
- Apparent inconsistencies between his patient as he described it and the suspected illnesses,
- An approach to differential diagnosis as practised by veterinarians
- Possibilities to compare the suspected disease or diseases accorded to the patient by at least one important symptom.
- A description of suspected diseases and general information on the risks of contagion to humans, the rest of the herd or neighboring herds, at economic risk, the means of action to control the disease.
All of this information does not constitute a diagnosis. A diagnosis is in fact the synthesis of this information, and that which the user may have access to elsewhere. Diagnosis is an additional step that is not performed by the site but can be performed by the veterinarian.
These services are subject to these general conditions.
3.1 User obligations
Access to the Vetaid application, subject to compliance with these general conditions, gives the user a strictly personal right to use the Vetaid application.

Obligations of the application manager
The application manager strives to disseminate and implement by the means at his disposal to ensure the permanence, continuity and quality of the service he offers.
The application manager agrees to intervene within a reasonable time in the event of a breakdown or anomaly preventing access to the service in order to restore said access or, failing that, to inform users of the situation.
The application manager reserves the right to interrupt, suspend or modify, without notice, access to all or part of the service in order to ensure the proper maintenance, corrections and appropriate evolutions of the application or for any other reason without compensation and without liability being incurred as a result.
The Vetaid app is a cattle health calculator and consultation tool intended to help professionally, a student vet or a veterinarian.
The Vetaid application strives to disseminate reliable and up-to-date information.
The information made available to the user is only indicative. As the system makes it possible to describe multitudinous specific cases of sick cattle, the author cannot of course be held responsible for the inadequacy of the information provided to one or more specific cases. The Vetaid Application Manager is responsible for reviewing cases brought to his attention as possible errors, oversights, and necessary updates.
The use of the information and services offered by the Vetaid application is carried out as the sole responsibility of the user. If a user wants to learn about the particular state of health of a bovine, it is up to him to examine it and collect his observations himself.
In any case, the application manager and / or the author are not responsible for the entry of data or the use of information made by the user which are under the latter’s sole responsibility.
It is again emphasised and reiterated that Vetaid is a calculation tool that informs the user about the health of a bovine, offering clinical suspicions, but does not perform a diagnosis. It is up to the veterinarian to make his own diagnosis. The services offered by the Vetaid application cannot replace the clinical examination by a veterinarian, the only one authorised to make a diagnosis and issue a prescription, in accordance with the veterinary code of ethics.
The services offered by the Vetaid application are intended to help the user veterinarian in his diagnosis and to inform him of the possible risks associated with a clinical suspicion:
- Risk of disease transmission to humans, to consumers of food from the herd or the patient
- Risk of contagion to other cattle in the herd or to neighboring cattle
- Risk of worsening of the patient’s health or of mortality
- Economic risk for livestock’s owner
The services offered by the Vetaid application are not intended to replace the intervention of a veterinarian or to perform a medical procedure; these services are only a diagnostic aid for sick cattle and a source of information on diseases that may affect cattle.
The application director and / or the author cannot be held responsible for any use of data outside the control of the user veterinarian.
The application director and / or the author cannot in any respect be held responsible for any damage that might directly or indirectly affect the animal (s) as a result of the use of the information available on the Vetaid application.

The user must always take responsibility for the correct and discerning use and understanding of the information made available to him on the site and the Vetaid application. It is up to each user to check the extent of the problem of the animal (s) for which he/she is tending.
