Guide to developing a timeline for animals

Please note

There is no online form to fill out for developing a timeline. What follows is simply a set of guidelines for what we are looking for from you. You will need to create this as a separate document and then e-mail it to the clinic as an attachment.

E-mail the clinic with your timeline document attached.

Please place all shocks in a chronological order (see example below) starting from conception/birth, or from the present and working your way back in time. The following types of events should be considered as possible shocks or traumas:

Pre-birth: any drugs, severe illnesses in mother (particularly of a viral nature); also consider any emotional shocks to mother during pregnancy or in mother/father at time of conception (see section on emotional traumas below); ultrasound or other invasive testing.
Birth: Mother had difficult labour; any allopathic interventions; use of anaesthetics or drugs on mother; late breathing or other possible oxygen deprivation
Vaccinations: Dates, if possible of first vaccination of each kind received (can ignore booster shots)
Accidents: injuries requiring stitches, falls, blows to head, concussions, broken bones, animal bites
Surgical interventions: e.g., neutering/gelding or spaying, tail-docking, dental interventions (including routine cleanings), abdominal (including Caesarean sections); other major surgeries
Drug Use: antibiotics, steroids (Cortisone/Prednisone), heartworm meds, routine wormings, etc.
Hormones: hormonal drugs, etc.
Severe Infections/Illnesses: e.g., Lyme disease, Parvo, feline leukemia, colic, etc.
Electrical Shocks.
Traumas involving loss, abandonment, grief, betrayal (e.g., death of someone close, loss of trust, loss of independence)
Traumas involving great fear/anxiety, stress
Traumas involving anger and indignation/humiliation/abuse (particularly where the emotion had to be suppressed/"swallowed")
Feelings of envy or jealousy
Traumas involving abuse, whether mental, emotional or physical

NB: Some emotional traumas can involve a combination of emotions; emotions experienced in the household are picked up by the animals that live in the house as well, so they are worthy of noting in the timeline as well.
