Clients tell us they forget to administer their pets' monthly heartworm preventive or flea control—even when they put a reminder on the calendar. To help increase compliance, we recommend they program their cell phone to remind them. The phone alerts them on the day the medication is due. I do this to remember my own pet's medications, and it works great.
