As any pooch-smooching dog lover knows, our furry companions are more than just pets, they’re part of the family. We put care into picking their food, bed, toys, and sometimes even clothes — but what about apps? The App Store is packed with puppy-loving picks, starting with the favorites we’re listing here.
Do you ever feel like there's something missing in your life? Like there's a hole that could only be filled by a furry, cuddly, feathery, or scaly creature of some sort? Then maybe it's time you seek out the unmatchable companionship of a pet. There's no better time to do so, as June is National Adopt a Pet Month, plus there are always rescue animals in need of a great home. But that doesn't mean you should rush into things without doing a little research. Getting a pet is a long-term responsibility that you should be prepared for. That's why we've gathered eight apps that are essential to have handy if you're bringing home a new pet. They'll help you be prepared and make sure you're giving your pet the home it deserves.
If there's one thing people can't get enough of, it's animals. Pets owners of all kinds can't help but obsess over their favorite fluffy or furry family member; and if you're one of those folks, then this list of iOS apps is for you. From keeping up with the health of your pet to taking them on road trips -- as well as engaging in fun, games, and relaxation -- you'll find the perfect app for every aspect of your critter's life. And they may also help simplify your daily routine, giving you more time to pick out the perfect holiday sweater for your unwilling subject.
When your furry friend acts up, first make sure it isn’t a health-related issue. Nothing beats professional vet care if you think something’s wrong, but iOS apps like Pet First Aid ($0.99, iPhone) can help you tell what’s normal, what needs attention, and even what to do in case of emergencies.
