Summer is a time of so much fun–from trips to the lake to vacations with your dog–but it’s also a time when accidents occur. As you know, we take a LOT of day trips with Irie and Tiki but we’re always careful to take along at least some emergency items in case of a minor emergency or for assistance until we can reach a veterinarian’s office.
Now one lucky DogTipper reader will win the ASPCA Emergency Ready Deluxe Pet First Aid Kit to keep their pets safe!
Download a Free App
Another great way to keep your dog safe is through technology. The ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has launched its first interactive mobile application, which is available for free download on iPhone and Android.
This app includes step-by-step instructions on what to do if your pet goes missing, tailored to each specific circumstance and a pet’s individual personality. This is a must to download before fireworks or thunderstorms; nearly one-in-five lost pets goes missing after being scared by fireworks or other loud noises!
With the app, you’ll be able to:
- build a digital lost pet flyer that can be shared instantly on your social networks
- look up advice on ensuring a pet’s safety before, during and after a major storm or natural disaster.
- store all your pet’s relevant information, such as vaccination history and dietary info, all in one convenient place. This is a great option because, even if you can’t reach your vet in the event of a natural disaster, you’ll have your records right at hand.
