Help Your Dog’s Health by Journaling – Dogster

Tracking your own health by journaling is a helpful, proactive step toward better-managed care and clear communication across healthcare provider teams. The same is true for our fur family.

Journaling health information such as vaccinations, medications and tracking recurring issues gives front row seating to your dog’s health and wellness and allows easy access in an emergency or for a pet sitter situation.

What to include in your dog’s health notes

Vet and emergency contacts and microchip information are important documents to locate in a pinch. Food brand and feeding amount (or food allergies), flea and heartworm prevention schedules, plus any abnormal health symptoms are also helpful to have written down and solidified in one place says Dr. Sue Yanoff, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon.
