More general information about all of the fields can be found in the Field Descriptions topic.

    • Drug. Required. You can choose from your ranch-chosen drugs, but you can always choose from all available drugs as well. On a computer, use the ... button to do this. On a mobile device, use the control that switches between ranch only and all drugs.
    • Route. Required. After you've chosen a drug, the possible administration routes for that drug will be available in this field and the first one will automatically be selected. You can change it if you need to.
