Sorry if this is not the best place to ask or if I sound vague, I am very new to CiviCRM and would be grateful for any advice I can get.
I am using CiviCRM for a local nonprofit animal shelter. Currently I have the pets stored as an "Individual" subtype, and added a custom field group for Pet Details that I basically would want to replace the "Contact Details" section, since none of that information is relevant to a pet. I'm starting to think that a better course of action would be to somehow create an entire new contact type just for pets.
My options are to either try to hide the "Contact Details" section of the pet subtype, or create a whole new Contact Type just for pets. I'm not sure how to go about doing this or if there is even a way to do this without editing the core code of Civi.
Thanks in advance, any advice is greatly appreciated.
