Let’s face it, we all think our own pet is the cat’s meow or the top dog. And naturally we want our furry and feathered (or scaled) friends to be healthy, safe, and well cared for. So why not track and organize your pet’s health and lifestyle needs like you do your own busy work and personal life?
When you get lost, your GPS leads you home. When Fido pulls a Houdini on you, his GPS will put you on the right scent to find him. Likewise, you keep a calendar with reminders for your business appointments, doctor’s appointments, kids’ soccer games, and girls’ night out. Now you can do the same for your pet, and never miss a prescription refill, vet appointment, or doggie play date again.
Need to find a vet while you’re on vacation with kitty? There’s an app for that. Need first aid tips for when “Lucky” is not so lucky during an encounter with the four-footed neighborhood bully or Pepe Le Pew? Yup, there’s an app for that too. Want to know how much exercise your pet is getting? You can map his walk. So why are you pussyfooting around?
Check out these gadgets and apps for all your pet’s needs!
