A partner and owner of HighTower Advisors in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Curtis Lyman has more than 30 years of financial experience. In addition, Curtis Lyman supports a number of charitable causes, including the American Red Cross.
Recently, the Red Cross released its Pet First Aid app for Android and iPhone. Pet First Aid contains information about cats and dogs regarding allergic reactions, bleeding, breathing problems, CPR, and a number of other answers to commonly asked pet health questions. In order to develop the app, the Red Cross worked closely with a team of experts at Penn Veterinary Hospital.
Users have the ability to create a profile for their pet that includes an ID number and a list of medications. In addition, the app provides numbers to the nearest veterinarians and hotels that are pet-friendly. A must have for pets with health problems and owners in need of a pet sitter, Pet First Aid is 99 cents to download, and proceeds benefit Red Cross efforts.
