My two former shelter kitties, Bugs and Fred
But since they needed rabies this time, I grabbed their records and headed down with them in a large pet carrier.
And the veterinarian remarked not only on how beautiful these cats were (of course he says that to everyone) but what an excellent job I did of keeping records. *grin*
So I thought I'd share my very simple method, which works much better than jotting it on a calendar, daily planner, or a note that is easily lost.
This one was set up for horses.
At the top, put the animal's name, date of birth (or approximate) and perhaps the date you brought the animal home (from the animal shelter, in my case. )
Then, I mark the columns (for dogs and cats):
but you could put anything you want in those columns.
Keep in a folder marked Pet Records in your file cabinet, or some other safe place, and you'll always have it.
If you are lucky and have your sweet pets for a long time, those columns will fill up over time, with all of the wonderful things you did for your friend and companion.
That's all! Easy Peasy!
So tell me, how do you keep records for your pets or your livestock?
