Hello, everyone!

I downloaded and navigated through this app, which is available for Apple and Android devices… It’s a MUST-HAVE  for all pet owners, and the cost is only $.99.

PET FIRST AID BLOGWhat I found and love about this app… and why I recommend it:

  • Information for dogs and cats are separated into two sections
  • Both have an alphabetized table of contents to quickly and easily find information needed
  • Each topic contains subsections, details, and easy-to-follow instructions
  • Video demonstrations

Other functions:

  • Variety of categories such as Toxic Substances, Traveling with Pets, Giving Medication, Pet-friendly Hotels, Emergencies, etc.
  • You can add your pets’ information to have readily on-hand
  • Vet locator to find the closest emergency hospital, but also lists options for different vets in the area
  • Quizzes to test your knowledge and keep you informed
  • Assistance with Lost Pets
  • Many more helpful resources!!!!!

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The purpose of my posting information about this app is NOT a substitute for medical attention when your pet needs care or has an illness and/or emergency requiring treatment by a veterinarian!!! 

Empowering pet parents with the tools to seek out information and knowledge to immediately intervene may save your pet’s life on the way to receiving emergency treatment.

Good find! That’s a very useful app. I especially like the way the information is presented, with video clips etc. making it much more likely to be understood and remembered. Thanks for sharing 🙂
