Blog the Change

The doggy bloggy community is very precious to us.  I will forever be grateful for all the support when Sissy was diagnosed with glaucoma and rather immediately thereafter, lost her left eye.  So we’re proud to do our part to Blog the Change.

While there are so many worthy causes to speak about, including our own vision of a canine glaucoma awareness foundation, today we’re sharing some information  I found via social media.

Dogster had a great article about how to store all of your pets (heck, it would work for human family members too) important information in your smart phone.   Even if your pet isn’t ridiculously high maintenance with special needs out the wazoo (love you Sis!), this list has all the potential to literally be a life-saver.

Please do click over and read the whole article, but just in case, here are the high points:

Take photos of and store in you phone’s photo album:

  1. All of the pet’s medications
  2. Your pet, from several angles
  3. Collar tags – rabies, local dog license, etc.
  4. The microchip data – the chip #, manufacturer, etc.
  5. The food – SERIOUSLY important for dogs with allergies and/or food intolerances!
  6. The pet store where said food comes from
  7. The vet’s business card or screen shot of the website
  8. The emergency vet’s contact information

July 2012 013Obviously, some of us (yes, you Sissy) will need a longer list.  We have the eye clinic and its national info for when we travel, we have the emergency vet info for the beach, etc.  I also intend to forward all of this to the Knight’s phones and to the handful of people who could find themselves caring for the girls.

Do you have any great advice to share?

    I don’t have a smart phone, but I do have detailed instructions in the “dog drawer” in the kitchen.
