Maintain Pet Advisories

To Maintain Pet Advisories begin in the PetExec menu-->company preferences-->misc. settings-->maintain pet advisories.

1.  Enter the Advisory name, color and select an icon.  Click Add Advisory to save.

2. Click Edit to modify an existing advisory to add a color and icon if desired.

3. Click to Delete an advisory.  Use caution when deleting advisories.  If advisories are deleted,  any pets with the deleted advisory will no longer have this advisory, or any history of this advisory.  Adding back the same advisory will not place the advisory back on the pet records. You can access of list of pets and assigned advisories from Reports-->Owner & Pet Reports->Pet Advisory Report.

Behavioral advisories can be added to the pet record when adding or modifying a pet.  Pets can be assigned more that one advisory.


There are two options for displaying Pet Advisories:

Option 1: Display the default  icon.  Hovering over it will show the individual icon(s) for a pet.

Option 2: “Enable custom pet advisory icons” in company preferences-->application preference-->miscellaneous.  When selected, individual icons will be displayed for each pet advisory instead of the single default icon.  With this option you can see all the advisories without hovering over them. Hovering over an icon will show the advisory name.

When checking this preference, each advisory must have an icon and color identified.  If you have existing advisories with no icon/color, click edit to add icons and colors.  When selecting an icon you can search to find applicable icons:
