How pet owners use Kith + Kin to organize their pet's important health info.

Updated over a week ago

Kith + Kin helps pet owners keep track of all the important health info that always seems to get lost and share their furry friend’s caring details with family and pet-sitters.

Creating a profile for your pet in Kith + Kin is just like creating one for a human: Simply enter your pet's basic info and add their photo, then you can begin notebooks and Smart Items with their health information. Take just five minutes every so often to add information when it’s on your mind, and soon you'll have a complete picture of your pet's health, all in one place and easily accessible when you need it.

What you might want to track:

  • Add Practitioner Smart Items for Veterinarian contact info. Include links and login info for any portals or appointment systems.

  • Create a Notebook for Emergencies. If you take your pet to a different practice in an emergency, add the contact information and address.

  • Add Document Smart Items for Vaccine records. Many pet services, such as groomers or boarding facilities, require proof of certain vaccines. Keep this info handy for when you or someone else is taking your pet to the groomer or to board.

  • Create a Notebook for microchip details. If you don't know your pet's microchip number or registration info, ask your vet to scan for the chip at their next visit. Write down the number and visit a free microchip registry like to register your pet's chip.

  • Add Medication Smart Items. Include any ongoing or as needed medications. Also, make a note of the last time you or your vet administered any flea/tick/heartworm prevention so you know when it's due next.

  • Add Allergy Smart Items. Include symptoms so you remember what to look for in the future, and add any related medication instructions.

  • Create a Notebook for Illnesses or Conditions. Include any notes from vet visits, procedures, medications, or any other important details.

  • Create a Notebook for Pet sitter instructions. Include feeding instructions, medication instructions (if needed), walking/exercise/potty schedule and any other important details.

Share all or some information with:

  • Spouse or partner

  • Siblings or other family members

  • Adult children

  • Friends and others in your support circle

  • For kids, other caregivers and babysitters
