Tips On How To Organise Your Dog Emergency Information

Jun 20, 2008
Introduction

Does Fido need a Filofax? Is keeping track of his personal and emergency information becoming a trial? After all several pieces of paper with all his important numbers and records scattered throughout the length and breadth of your house is hardly efficient. Nor is the complete mess left by you as you trawl through drawers and filing cabinets looking for his vaccination records. What this situation requires is a bit of organisation!

Types of information

How much information would you need to organise? Well, that would depend on personal preference. For example you might consider appointments at the dog grooming parlour an absolute necessity and therefore the details of such an establishment may be essential as part of the emergency information. However there maybe other types of information that you had not considered, such as what to do in the event of your death (very cheery); or a maybe common doggie illnesses and their symptoms, or what sorts human foods might be poisonous to a dog. What has to be borne in mind is that the information is for the benefit of Fido, and in the event of your demise, the people who might be looking through the information are your friends or family.

Who is going to need the information?

Obviously the person who will be using this information the most will be you! So as long as you understand your system, and can access it quickly and easily, that will be fine. But suppose your family or friends need to access this information, or professionals from a boarding kennel. What ever system you develop has to be user friendly, and easy for multiple person admission.

Computer programs

Ease of access, then, is just as important as the information itself. Perhaps you want to have everything filed in a traditional manner, in a cabinet say, or a card index system. This might seem laborious, also not so easy to back-up. Most people have computers these days, so you might consider creating a relational database. This way even friends and family can keep a copy as well. If you are baulking at the thought of the amount of work which would go into creating such a thing, there's no need for alarm, as there are plenty of software products on the market that do all the hard work for you! Some even allow you to keep a nice picture of you best friend, just to remind you who's the most important!

Conclusion

It may seem like a lot of work for no gain, but believe me, you will need the information to hand when calamity strikes, and you will need it fast! It is better to develop a system now and add the necessary information as you go, rather than risk something awful happening, just because you mislaid an important piece of information.
About the Author
Probably the most important bit of information that you will need to retain is your dog training records . As your dog goes through their training, remember to keep track of all the important dates. When they were potty training, when they stopped biting, or when they stopped crying at night.
