Tips And Tricks For Becoming A Master Of Today’s Technology

As the summer temperatures increase, there’s a special member of the family who may need some additional care. Tech Tuesday is exploring the American Red Cross app for pets to help you make the best decisions for your four-legged family members.

The informational app provides free information pertaining to the most common medical issues pets may face.

After downloading the app, you can choose to read information for either a dog or a cat.

Once you’ve chosen the appropriate tab, you will find a list of symptoms that your animal may experience. The symptoms are in alphabetical order and cover everything from allergic reactions and bleeding to seizures and wounds.

Choose a topic, such as heat related, to get information provided by the American Red Cross.

First you’ll find a picture or video to support the topic.

Next you’ll read a summary of the selected medical topic.

After the summary, some first steps for you to follow will appear. Read over the advice related to the symptoms your pet is experiencing. You will find a facts and questions section at the bottom of the page to help further your research on the topic.

To make sure you’ve understood the section well, and know the best steps to take for your pet, assess yourself at the end of the section with a quiz.

We hope this app will give you some tips and tricks on how to appropriately take care of your pets during emergent situations.
