“Alexa, what time is it?”
“Alexa, play my favorite song.”
“Alexa, what’s the weather like?”
You already know some of the things you can do with your Amazon Echo or Echo Dot and its voice-based personal assistant, Alexa. But did you know that you can also use it to create monthly dosing reminders?
Yup, it’s easy. Every time you give your dog her monthly dose of Trifexis® (spinosad + milbemycin oxime), simply ask Alexa to remind you when it’s time for the next month’s dose.
Here’s what to say to Alexa:
You: Alexa, make a reminder.
Alexa: What’s the reminder for?
You: Give my dog Trifexis.
Alexa: When should I remind you?
You: In one month.
Alexa: What time?
You: (Say your desired time including a.m. or p.m.)
Alexa: Ok, I’ll remind you (specified date) at (specified time)
Now that you know how to create reminders, you can experiment with asking Alexa to remind you of annual veterinary exams or anything else you need to remember to be a responsible pet parent.
If you don’t have one of these devices, make sure to add a reminder to your calendar or sign up for email or text reminders from us.
