Who says you can’t merge the hottest and latest technology with pet ownership? Indeed you can. We pet owners love our dogs and cats and as such will use whatever method is at our disposal to care for, protect, play with and love our four legged furry friends. Since not everyone has a tablet or laptop yet, but most do have a cell phone, apps are a hot category to contend with in the pet gadget arena.
Some of these apps are just for fun, while others have a decidedly more functional purpose. But all are intended to make caring for your pet easier, faster and or more convenient. Let’s have a look at four fun mobile apps for pet owners.
4 Fun Mobile Apps Aimed at Pet Owners
1. Pet Centric
This is a neat iPhone app for pet owners seeking local information on nearby dog parks, pet friendly restaurants, hotels and pet service providers. You can also share information via Foursquare and Twitter plus read tips, find a vet, watch cute pet videos or simply post pics of your pooch for others to see in the Pet Centric pet gallery. When time is of the essence and you seek local pet info on the fly, this cool (and FREE) app should do the trick.
2. Cat Tractor
Does your feline friend love to chase red dots? If so, he’s in good company as most cats love to chase things and specifically red laser dots. This app knows this fact and created a fun little diversion for Fluffy that should keep him or her busy for some time. It’s an Android app that is compatible with the Kindle Fire and the trick is that your device will play the app and as such it’s important to get yourself a nice protective film for the screen, since this is what kitty will be batting at left and right. However it should prove to be loads of fun for your cat.
Do you love to run with your dog? If so, why not bring along a Pedometer for her or him. You now can via the Petometer app for Android. This app is compatible with the Kindle Fire tablet from Amazon and most Android powered cell phones and is a great way to keep track of the miles you run with your pet. Whether you run daily, weekly or at any similar interval you can now keep good tabs on how far you’ve come with Fido in both of your fitness routines. This fun app keeps track of miles run and lets you journal the experience.
Every pet owner wants to provide and care for his pet as best as possible and when your pet gets ill or is involved in some sort of emergency – he will need the same good medical attention that any other member of your family would get. This app will facilitate this good medical care by helping you with information, videos and tips on things to look for.
There you have it. Four cool and smart mobile apps aimed at pet owners. Whether you own a dog or cat, the apps above should provide information, tips and or entertainment.
