What is CARI?

    CARI Stands for Companion Animal Registry of India.

    CARI contains the details of every animal which you have already registered. If any public find a dog with our Collar and the Tag , they can easily get to know the details of the dog, using our SMS or Online access .

    Even the dog behaviour details are also helpful for public to interact with the dog. If the dog needs any medical care if the dog is friendly the person can directly arrange for medical care without the need for any trained handlers or the public can contact the particular NGO / Animal lover.

    Automatic Reminders:

    The due dates for vaccinations and de worming are sent as an everyday reminder automatically by SMS and mail to the NGO's / care taker one week prior to the expiry date.

    By maintaining vaccination history we avoid revaccination hence prevent vaccine related side effects due to overdose. It also helps the public to know that the dog is protected from rabies.

    In India people fear of rabies and they immediately suspect the dog rabid if the dog happens to be aggressive,if the dog is found salivating or if the dog is restless. Just by above symptoms no dog can be suspected of rabies . The above symptoms are also caused by other illness other than rabies. For example a dog survived after Distemper infection can have salivation or any disease or injury to the mouth and jaw can also lead to salivation.

    In order to protect the dog from animal abuse and inhumane culling the vaccination details are useful in proving that the dog is vaccinated. The medical history and behaviour details are also helpful. For example if the dog is friendly the dog doesn't harm unless provoked or to self protect .

    Medical history includes past and current treatment.

    Past treatment gives information about the disease and treatment received so that further care is taken. For example if a dog had mange in the past, recovered after treatment specific measures can be taken to prevent recurrence like diet modifications, improve immunity, regular checkups and to watch for any recurrence of symptoms at the earliest.

    Current treatment helps to avoid simultaneous treatment by any other person for the same disease so that we avoid drug over dosage. For example if the dog is undergoing treatment for mange using the drug Ivermectin, if another person is also concerned about the dog and starts treating again with Ivermectin this can unknowingly lead to overdose of the dog which can also be fatal.

    Feeder and care taker details are provided so that in case of any emergency they can be contacted by public. Also makes one aware that the dog is already under someone's care.
