If you are a pet owner, then you know it doesn't take much for them to get out of hand, or do something that has you wondering what you are suppose to do right?
Well, sometimes you just need some information on what to do. What if your cat ate a leaf from a plant and you don't know if it is on the danger list? What if your dog is shaking and that chocolate bunny is missing? If you have a veterinarian on speed dial, then that might be your answer, but sometimes you just want some answers, and all you have on you is your phone.
Well, if you own a iPhone, you can now get apps for your pets.

Pet Safe (iPhone App)
This app is great, especially for example if your cat ate a plant you are not sure about. It has a list of toxic plants for cats and dogs, and it will show a picture as well to help you identify what your cat ate.
