Title: System and method for automatically recording animal injection information

Abstract: A system and method for automatic recordation of information relating to administration of medicines to animals are accomplished by a transmitting syringe simultaneously injecting and marking an animal while transmitting, responsive to actuation of the transmitting syringe, a first signal containing information relating to the actuation of the transmitting syringe and the resulting injection of the animal. An electronic identification device (EID) such as a bolus, ear tag or subcutaneous implant is attached to the animal and provides a unique electronic identification of the animal. A receiver receives both the first signal from the transmitting syringe and the electronic identification of the animal, as provided by the EID. Information contained in the respective signals is maintained in a computer database for review and analysis.
