- Puptox- A great little carry around app that will let you know what items may be toxic to your cat and dog. Not sure if those flowers you are thinking of buying at Trader Joe’s are safe? Look it up! What about the candy bar your dog just ate? You can get a rough estimate of the level of toxicity by entering in your dog’s weight, the amount of food eaten, and get an idea of how severe or how sick your dog might get.Puptox is $.99 to buy and can be found here.
- Tagg- A great new app that lets owners know what their pet is up to 24/7. This app uses GPS and wireless tracking to record where your pet walks, runs, and hangs out. If your pet leaves an area an alert is sent to you that will help you locate and get her/him back home. The tracker attaches to your pet’s collar and the app is on your phone. This app is best for dog owners as cats have a wonderful talent for “losing their collars” while out and about.The Tagg app is available here and the tracker is available for purchase
