The best iPhone and iPad apps for pet owners

I’ve reviewed a few American Red Cross apps over the past year or so, and I’m always very much impressed with the comprehensive nature of pretty much everything they put out into the market, not to mention the professionalism with which their material is presented.

Once again they’ve done a splendid job of providing a rather niche resource, in this case it’s the care of kitties and doggies and a very useful app for pets. There’s a lot of very useful information in here, so this app receives a very strong recommendation from me.

You’ll find advice on everything from how to correctly (and hopefully painlessly) administer medication, how to interpret changes in behavior, even how to know when it’s time to say goodbye to your furry friend.

I’ve seen entire apps dedicated to finding things like veterinarian practices and pet-friendly hotels, but this app has it all covered so you’ll be covered in any eventuality, plus you can even set vet appoints directly within the app while keeping the practice’s phone number available at all times.

What’s more, there are a bunch of quizzes that you can go through to earn badges which can then be shared with your friends and family online via Facebook, Twitter, email, and text message along with a picture of your buddy. This is the perfect way to let the world know how much you care!
