AD – Manage Our Lists, Litter Care Items add/edit
Users can create customized litter care data entry batches. These batch entries are a group of procedures that every puppy in a litter receive at the same time.
Any procedures such as exams, vaccines, deworming, microchip implant, CAER exams, etc. and at any age point can be processed as a group rather than individually done with each puppy, helping you save time when entering the same information to multiple puppies in the same litter.
Before being able to enter these batch entries for a litter, you must first create the batch lists. You only have to create the lists once and then they are there for you to use moving forward.
