The Pre-Prep Recorder enters the antibiotic dosage and records the confirmation of the ear-tip procedure on the Medical Record. No rabies vaccination is required for this position.
Visually monitor the cats closely. The cat should not be moving, blinking or licking. If the cat is fully sedated, watch the chest for movement. Breathing can be very shallow and difficult to see. A normal respiratory rate is 6 or more breaths per minute. If breathing is less frequent or isn’t visible at all, alert the Ear-Tip Technician to do a hands-on assessment immediately.
Pre-Prep Recorder Instructions
Without touching the cat compare the Paw Tag and the Medical Record to be sure the ID# matches.
Complete the Medical Record:
- Circle the dosage of penicillin administered, record the time and initials of the technician who administered the dos.
- Record the time of the ear-tip procedure and the initials of the technician who performed the ear-tip procedure.
