My sister’s Ragdoll cat, Addie, has a disease called Feline Gastrointestinal Eosinophilic Sclerosing Fibroplasia.
The disease is monitored via ultrasound to see if her gastrointestinal wall is inflamed or not – and the disease is controlled by prednisolone and metronidazole. However, each pill (right now – this can change based on the ultrasound) is administered every 3 days. So my sister has an extra wall calendar just for Addie and marks “P” for prednisolone, “M” for metronidazole and “X” for days when Addie gets a break (and my sister does too).
Here’s a video that shows how my sister keeps track of it all.

Lynn said, “Excel has a feature that allows you to “drag” down the dates, so once you enter the date on the first row, you can drag it down and it will fill the rest of the dates. Eliminates a lot of typing!”
