Pet First Aid by American Red Cross provides tons of information to help you address almost any type of emergency situation you may encounter with your pet. With this app, you can follow the steps outlined for basic treatment, and even find the nearest animal hospital.
Transportation instructions: In addition to step-by-step instructions on how to provide pre-vet care for your sick or injured pet, the app also includes tips on how and when to transport your animal to the vet. This can be especially useful for animals who are in pain or who have had a serious injury.
Health tips: This app includes plenty of information for how to help your animal lead a happy and healthy life. There are sections on Health and Well Being, Socialization, and Knowing What's Normal, so you can take a comprehensive approach to keeping your pet healthy and well-adjusted.
Record reference: Another convenient feature of this app is the option to add your pet's medical records, so you always have them for reference later on. This not only helps you stay up to date on their checkups and vaccinations, but it can also be an invaluable resource if you have to take your pet to an unfamiliar vet in an emergency situation.
Only dogs and cats: This app contains separate tabs for information on dogs and cats, but there is no information about any other types of pets. It would be nice if there were even just some links included to external resources for reptiles, birds, and other types of animals.
Pet First Aid is a great resource for any dog or cat owner. It costs $0.99 and gives you the tools to handle many types of situations. And the information you find in this app can also reassure you, so you know when to worry and when an unexpected behavior is probably perfectly normal.
