Best Smartphone Apps for Pet Owners
Looking for ways to make taking care of your pet’s health even easier? There’s an app for that! We’ve made a list of our favorite smart phone apps for pet owners below.
This app features a database of more than 100,000 world-wide locations that you might need as a pet owner. These locations include pet-friendly parks and beaches, veterinarians, pet supply retail outlets, and more. There are even ways to add your own locations. Use it anywhere in the world!
Pet First Aid (American Red Cross)
When you have a pet emergency, the first thing you should do is call your vet. But pending professional care, there’s nothing better than this app. The American Red Cross has compiled a wealth of useful information on everything from disease signs and symptoms and emergency first-aid to an animal hospital locator for when you’re away from home and need care.
We support all of our pet owners using Dog Buddy because it’s a great way to stay organized with your pet’s health. Keep track of your dog’s vet appointments, your cat’s medications and prescriptions, and much more. It’s especially useful for staying on top of your pet’s weight, allergies, and other medical markers so that you and your vet can watch for any changes that might signify a more serious condition.
Animal Poison (ASPCA)
As humans, we basically know right away what’s poisonous for our bodies. But with pets, it’s not so simple. The Animal Poison app by the ASPCA is a great tool for quickly being able to identify whether a food or substance is healthy or dangerous for your pet. Use their extensive digital database to find exactly what you’re looking for and get instant feedback on whether you should be alarmed or not.
Naturally, whenever you have an emergency or question concerning your pet’s health or wellness, our vets are always here at Sunset Veterinary Clinic. Book your pet’s next appointment today or feel free to give us a call if you have a question!
