Have you ever been in a situation where your pet needed basic first aid? I think we have all been there, especially when the vet is closed.

And since we have TONS of dog and cat lovers right here in Lubbock, this could be a lifesaver for your furry friend.

There is now an app that can help you out, it is called Pet First Aid and it is available from the Red Cross for Android Devices.

This app is a basic primer on what to do if your pet needs attention after an accident, ate something they shouldn't have, and even how to give CPR to an animal.

Of course, this should not serve as a replacement for your vet, but if nothing else you could help your pet until you are able to get it to the ol' horse doc.
