When patients stay at our veterinary hospital all day, the owners often leave some of their pets' belongings at our practice. We used to put smaller items in a resealable plastic bag and larger items on the counter. This wasted a lot of bags and took up limited counter space. So I purchased plastic bins in two sizes to use instead. Now we write the pet's name on the bins with a dry-erase marker and put the bin on a shelf in the kennel. When the pet goes home, we simply erase the pet's name and the bin is ready for another pet.
