Just about every pet owner has been in an emergency situation with their pet, frantically wondering what to do. Now the Red Cross has come up with a Pet First Aid App that gives you lifesaving information so you can provide emergency care until you can get your pet to a vet.
  
The 99-cent app for iPhone and Android gives you step-by-step instructions, videos and images for more than 25 common first aid and emergency situations.

Also:

•  Prepare and protect your pet’s health with advice on administering medication, time to say goodbye, behavioral help and how to act in a disaster situation.
•  Early warning sign checker for preventive care.
•  Programmable veterinary contact number to be available when needed throughout the app.
•  Learn first aid steps for more than 25 common pet situations through a combination of text, video and images, in addition to identifying common toxic substances.
•  Locate your nearest emergency vet hospital or pet-friendly hotels.
•  Respond to pet emergencies with “how to” videos for the common and stressful emergency situations inclusive of size specific CPR techniques.
•  Customize multiple pet profiles and set veterinary appointments.
•  Interactive quizzes allow you to earn badges that you can share with your friends along with a picture of your pet
