Your pet is an important member of your family. Unfortunately, animals are also affected by disaster, and they rely on you for help during emergencies. Did you know the American Red Cross has a Pet First Aid app to help you take care of your four legged loved ones?
Available on iTunes and Google Play, this mobile resource puts veterinary advice for emergencies in the palm of your hand. With videos and interactive quizzes, understanding pet first aid has never been easier.
Some features of the app include:
- Advice on administering medication, behavioral help and how to act in a disaster situation;
- First aid steps for over 25 common pet situations;
- An early warning sign checker for preventive care; and
- A location finder for emergency vet hospitals and pet-friendly hotels.
