Monitoring Animal Diseases in Remote Area

Applied Problems


In densely populated countries, medical facilities are not much available in country-side areas. If it is about animal health, it is rare to get a good cure. The owner has to take the animal to the Vet and will have to do it every time if he is living in remote places. Most countries in South Asia have this situation where animal husbandry is a common source of earning bread. Many times either the animal is not getting cure on time or diseases are detected at a later stage which harms them most. This paper describes a cellular communication based mobile system which can be used to monitor the health of animals in the remote country-side area. Also, the owner can get a prescription from the doctor and cure animals according to doctor’s advice. The developed system uses client-server model and can work for multiple patients who are connected with the same doctor. The Vet can access this system on his PDA or desktop using a web application.
