Pet Information Sheet

Post by stephlisa on Tue Jul 12, 2016 4:43 am

So, Colin's going on holiday this weekend to some dear friends of mine (while I go on a family holiday). I know they'll do a fantastic job looking after him, but they can get a little anxious and panicky about things so I'm putting together an information with all the information they could possibly need, including anything a vet might need to know should that be required.

On one page is all the details about the vets.
On another page I'd like to include details about Colin himself (including anything a vet might need to know) and details about his care.
On a final page I'm planning on including a small amount of mouse first aid, just in case!

So my question is, what is worth including in the section about Colin, his care, and mouse first aid?

I know my friends will do wonderful job and Colin will have a great holiday, but its good to be prepared!
Thanks :-)

I imagine the care section would be pretty short... It's just a few days? He should have plenty of good and water. I would advise them to check the water bottle twice a day. Just tap the ball to make sure it's working. And just observe him at least once a day to make sure he's acting normal.

As far as first aid, I wouldn't really have a sitter attempt any real first aid on a mouse. If something is wrong, off to the vet.

Have fun!

Basically what scaredymouse said. Make sure he has plenty of food and water, and make sure he's behaving normally.

"Heralds of the coming doom, by cry of raven, we are drawn. This oath of war and vengeance, on blade of exalted iron sworn. With blood-anointed swords aloft, advance we into dread's dark shade. Punishment divine unleashed with hate, a wrathful storm of bolt and blade. Purge with plasma, fist, and shell; bring cleansing fire's righteous breath. For the Emperor, knights of Caliban! The Lion's anointed Angels of Death! No forgiveness. No retreat."
