Every dog or cat owner is likely to encounter at least one emergency or incident where they fear that something is wrong with their pet. Of course, if it’s possible, you’ll head to the vet. However, many pet owners will search the initially internet for solutions. This isn’t always ideal, though, as first aid information on the internet isn’t always reputable.
Luckily, for those who turn to technology during a pet’s emergency, the Red Cross has developed a new pet first aid app. Here are some of its features:
You can customize the app for each of your pets (cats and dogs).
You’ll be guided step-by-step through emergency situations.
You’ll get advice regarding a range of topics such as behavioral issues, administering medication, natural disaster procedures, and saying goodbye.
You can watch first aid instructional videos.
This pet first aid app sounds great; however, I haven’t used it yet, so I can’t personally endorse it. You can decide for yourself by checking it out on the Red Cross site and downloading it to your phone from the app store or Google play for $0.99.
