Using technology to take care of your pet even more is a fabulous idea. This is simply because your pet deserves the best of love and attention so why not supplement your personal involvement in your pet’s well being with mobile applications?
There are plenty of options in the market and you can choose according to:
- The operating system on a smart phone – Android or iOS since it is possible that one application may be available only on a particular platform.
- The extensiveness of the features offered by the mobile application.
- The ease of use of the mobile application and so on.
Here are the top three pet mobile apps that are being used by a large number of people.
Activity tracking is an extremely important feature because you will need to keep track of where your pet is. MapMyDogWalk is an application that is:
- Available on iOS and Android.
- Capable of combining your health and your dog’s health into one easy to use application.
- Essentially meant to track all the walks that you take with your dog.
It is also indeed interesting that you can keep track of various important metrics such as the distance that you have covered, the time that you have taken to cover this distance and even the elevation on your track. Interestingly enough, the app also allows you to upload photographs and geo-tag the same so that your friends know exactly what you and your little pet have been up to.
Health related emergencies can be extremely stressful for the pet of course and for you as well. When an app is capable of telling you exactly what certain symptoms indicate then it can be extremely helpful before you find a vet for your pet. Of course, professional attention is the best possible solution for any health related emergency but you can always arm yourself with some basic information with Pet First Aid that allows you to decipher early warning signs such as:
- Allergic reactions.
- Coughs, upset tummy and so on.
You can also look at helpful videos and respond to a large number of pet related emergencies for both your cat and your dog. Of course it then becomes essential for you to find the nearest possible veterinarian and take your pet out there.
Pet Services Finder
The convenient app that helps you find all possible services related to your pet is Pet Services Finder. This can become especially important when you have to leave your pet for a little while and go away somewhere and you need to find services such as pet sitters, dog walkers and so on. With this application you can get hold of information related to:
- Emergency clinics.
- Animal shelters.
- Grooming services.
- Dog Parks and so on.
Very important especially when you are on the move with your pet and don’t really know where to go for a particular kind of service. In any case, it is also useful on a regular basis because it pops up information as and when you want it.
