Scritch Feature: Store Pet Care Notes and Vet Records

by Scritch

Did you know: Scritch has many awesome features and resources for pet parents. One of these features is the ability to easily store and share pet care notes and vet records. 

If you’ve ever left your pet with a sitter, you’ve probably gone through the process of writing out your pet’s schedule and care instructions. Scritch keeps all of this information in one easy-to-access spot with the ability to share all of this information with those who need it. No more digging around for that piece of paper with your pet’s care instructions, or having to sit down and write it all out every time you need to leave your pet with someone new!

In addition to care notes, you can also store all of your pet’s vet records including invoices, prescriptions, vaccination dates—anything and everything you want to keep track of. The mobile app makes it even easier; you can use your phone’s camera to snap photos of your documents and easily upload them to your account.
