3 Easy Ways To Remember Your Pet's Medications

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of all of our responsibilities and commitments. While itโ€™s not the end of the world to forget to pay the cable bill on time or blank on meeting a friend for coffee, our pets are one responsibility that we donโ€™t have the option to overlook, especially when it comes to their health.

Regardless of whether your pet is taking one

medication

a month or a dozen a day, itโ€™s important to remember to give your pet their medications on time. This not only ensures that the medicine can function as intended, it also keeps your pet safe, as forgetting or doubling up on a dose could cause serious harm to your pal.

Here are 3 easy ways to keep track of your petโ€™s medications so that youโ€™ll never miss a dose.

1. Keep A Calendar

This one is a no brainer, and can be especially useful if you have multiple pets or if your pet is taking multiple medications on different days of the month. Buy a wall calendar that you will dedicate only to your petโ€™s medication schedule, and hang it in a place in the house where youโ€™ll be sure to see it. If your pet needs to take their medications at mealtime, hang the calendar over their food bowl or food storage container. After giving your pet their medication(s) for the day, you can cross out that day to remind yourself not to double up.

2. Buy A Pill Organizer

You know those pill organizers sold near the pharmacy at drug stores? They arenโ€™t just for people! Weekly and monthly pill organizers are a great way to keep track of your petโ€™s medications, and just like the calendar, you can keep the organizer near your petโ€™s food if they take their pills with a meal. If you live with other people, make sure to label the pill organizer to ensure that no one will accidentally take your petโ€™s meds. You could even decorate the outside with animal stickers!
