When your companion animal is not just a “pet”, but a member of the family, you want to do all you can to keep that family member healthy and happy. Accidents, emergencies and mystery pains can strike at any hour of the day or night, and when a veterinarian’s office is hours or miles away, these Kindle books and this Red Cross app can help keep your furry, feathered and hooved loved ones stable while you wait for professional help. They can also help you deal with minor cuts, scrapes and similar situations that don’t really require veterinary care yourself.
