Weekly top iPhone apps: for dog lovers
Thursday 29 July 2010
This week's apps will help you take care of your best furry friend from dog training to first aid.
Pet First Aid
Pet First Aid: for your Dog, Cat, Puppy, or Kitten will help you provide the basic care and attention that your four-legged friend might need in a medical emergency. The application shows owners how to treat minor ailments with helpful videos, illustrations and detailed articles on subjects like cuts, choking, poisoning, bandaging and more. A section called Pet info lets you enter in information about your pets including when they had their last vaccinations, any medications they take, or information about any allergies or conditions your animal suffers from.
Paw Card: Pet Tracker for Your Dog and Cat
Paw Card helps you keep track of your loved one's vital information. Use it to record your pet's veterinary contacts, vaccinations, identification tags, medical conditions, and medication. Additional features include a graph of your dog's weight over time, the ability to write notes or journal entries.
Dog Park Finder
Dog Park Finder helps you locate dog-friendly parks and training locations in your area (USA locations only). The app includes information on more than 2200 off-leash areas, user photos and reviews (more than 6500) so you can have fun with your dog off the leash.
Dog Tricks & Bark Machine
Dog Tricks & Bark Machine provides owners with helpful tips and tricks for training your four-legged friend. The instructional images are accompanied with step-by-step instructions sourced from published dog training books. The app also contains a "Bark Machine," with a selection of different sounds from "Meow" to "squeaky Toy."
DogBook is a social networking application for dogs. Like Facebook, users can keep people updated with what's going on in your dog's life, friend fellow dogs (and even cats, horses, fish and ferrets), share photos, and find great animal-friendly places to meet up.
