Keep These Papers for your Dog , and consider HEALTH INSURANCE

ANOTHER VET STAY!!Pet Insurance can save on
those unexpected vet bills!

Keeping all of your dogs’ essential information in one safe place ensures that in an emergency, you’ll be able to find the necessary information ASAP. File this information in a place that is easy to remember and access, such as the front of your filing cabinet or a designated drawer in the kitchen. And always remember to make sure your dog’s vaccinations are up-to-date.

Pet’s Medical Records

Vet info

List of emergency phone numbers

Training history






Dog’s food and toy preferences

Personality (for example, friendly toward people in uniforms)

Shot records (starting at 8 weeks old)


Rabies vaccine (between 4 and 6 months of age)

Spay/neuter record


Worms (bring stool sample on first visit)


[sidebar head]How Much Did You Say That Checkup Costs?

The cost of vets can rival our own doctor’s fees. The price of veterinary care has increased at twice the rate of overall inflation. Because of advances in vet care, some very expensive “human”-style treatments are now available, including kidney transplants, chemotherapy, knee replacements, and pacemakers. Consider pet insurance when your dog is a puppy. If you purchase it early on in your dog’s life, you may pay a lower deductible and maximize the insurance benefits over time. There are many different types of insurance, so be sure to talk with your vet to find the best policy for you and your dog.
