First Aid for Pets- the free app

Would you know what to do if your pet stopped breathing or suffered a fracture? In an emergency situation, effective first aid can minimise injury and even save lives. Knowing what to do makes all the difference.

Clients of Castlemaine Veterinary Clinic can now get the first aid information they need from a free mobile app: First Aid for Pets Australia.

The app features first aid tips for over 130 conditions that affect cats and dogs, from toxins to trauma and medical emergencies.

For each condition, a simple, step-by-step guide to first aid is provided. You can find additional information on causes, clinical signs and treatments.

A map to our veterinary hospital and all of our contact details are loaded into the app so you can reach us straight away. The app also contains a list of all 24-hour veterinary emergency centres in Victoria.

First Aid for Pets Australia was written by Australian veterinarians, so the information is up to date, user-friendly and relevant to Australian pets.

Don’t wait for an emergency. Download the free app now so that you are prepared when it counts.

You can find the app through the iTunes app store, through the Google Play store, or through the links below.
