It is called Pet First Aid App and can be found at www.redcross.org/mobileapps.
The main purpose is for people to use it in cause their pet has an emergency. Users can enter their veterinarian's phone number and can quickly hit the call button. Users can also enter all their cat's or dog's information onto the application. This app is limited to just cats and dogs, with regard to the information the application provides.

The app also lists early warning signs in case your pet is in trouble, educational videos, pet friendly hotels nearby, and more.

"People care so deeply about their pets and we're aware of that," explains Doug Bishop the Director of Communications for the Red Cross. "We have provided, and for a long time, information about human first aid and we actually have a class about pet first aid. Now we're moving our information onto some of these platforms for apps and we want to do the same for pets."

The app is available across all chapters of the American Red Cross. It does cost $0.99 and more information can be found at the link above or www.redcross.org
