The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently launched a pet health and safety widget so people can get the latest in public health information.
The widget, a portable application embedded in a Web page that can be copied onto any other Web site or blog, will include topics such as how to report a problem with your pet food and questions about purchasing pet drugs online. The widget allows users to access content on the FDA’s Web site without having to leave another site or Web page.
The widget has two tabs, “tips” and “updates." The Tips tab highlights pet health and safety articles. The Updates tab will provide up-to-the-minute recall notices and veterinary drug news for consumers. The widget is available here.
