FROM checking in with your four-legged friend in a live video stream to knowing what food is best with them, there is now a Top 10 Apps list for pets.
Pet Insurance Australia has investigated the top 10 pet applications, from smart tags to keeping track of your companion animal’s health and fitness to pet first aid.
Dr Peter Prendergast, from Collaroy Veterinary Services, said that some apps were particularly helpful in relation to pet obedience, and what animals can and can’t eat.
“Any educational advice is always good,” Dr Prendergast said.
“I also like the idea of being able to see what your dog is up to during the day to make sure they’re not chewing the lounge.”
However, he did caution against relying on a smart phone to administer first aid advice.
First Aid for Pets Australia has easy to follow instructions on how to deal with an emergency while seeking professional help.
“It’s good that it can link to various vet clinics but it would only be effective for basic injuries,” Dr Prendergast said.
