Mack, our road dog, has his annual vet appointment this week. This week's vet appointment will be getting him ready to be a road dog. We keep his vet records in our phone in a file incase DOT port of entry needs to see it or God forbid he is injured or something. The quicker we can release information the better. We have records on him dating back to 2013.
He has been a road dog before. We learned he could read when he read signage on tractors & we curiously let him tell us which one was ours. He did by himself finally walked on his own to the steps of our tractor. The vet said recent shot records & medical records she will email to us so we can add to his traveling file. He is on a flea and heart wormer prescription medication prescribed by Mack's veterinarian and does get annually checked for worms.
We purchased him a rechargeable blinking dog collar and a reflective vest and leash. He refuses to wear shoes. He is microchipped and has medical details attached digitally to his dog tags. He even has had dental work. We have made the decision he will be our last dog. We picked him up from the Humane Society. When we found him he was approximately 1 year old. Now he is a senior dog.
Update : I also added his medical records and shot immunization records digitally to his ID tag on his collar. If DOT Port of Entry needs to see his immunization records they can go to the website on his tag or if he is ever lost and then found he will have health records delivered to aid his care instantly once his tag is scanned to a phone. Great way to be able to speak for him if we are unable to.
