Are there any Dog medication check charts out there?

Before I sit down and create one, does anyone know if there are any check off charts for medication out there?

Petey has 5 medications that he needs to take twice a day at staggered times, so I'm looking for a check off chart so we can write down the time or check off that he got that medication so we don't OD him or screw it up.

We also need to make sure he has eaten before he takes some of them, so we have to write that down too.


Is there such an animal out there?

I haven't seen one. I usually just make my own.

I'm putting one together for work right now. Shall we both do one and compare them? Between the two of us we could probably make an awesome one!

Just use a calendar with big squares that you can write in, my mom did that with her meds

I just finished a two week one. Want me to email it to you?

We thought about it, but it wouldn't work.

I just made one in excel. If I can figure out how to post an excel file here, I'll share it.

I use a pill organizer for Oscar's meds, I think you can get ones that have several time slots for each day, and you could probably write the times on the little door to each one and come up with some sort of symbol for "with food".

The other option is having the pharmacy put it all together for you, I'm pretty sure they do that

if there are any specific questions you have with regards to the meds or importance of time accuracy, let me know and I'll do my best :)
