Most pet parents can’t imagine leaving their pets behind in a natural disaster, but don’t actually have a plan to keep that from happening.
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) June 04, 2020
June is National Pet Preparedness Month, the perfect time to create an emergency kit that includes necessary supplies if pet parents ever have to evacuate with pets during a natural disaster or other emergency. By keeping a carrier, a first aid kit, and day-to-day necessities in one place, pet parents will be prepared for anything that comes their way.
A pet’s emergency kit should include extra food, medications, veterinary records, travel bowls, a first aid kit, and a stash of bottled water. It should also include an extra harness, leash, and carrier so pet parents can easily transport pets at a moment’s notice.
It’s also a good time to make sure pets have a collar tag with up-to-date contact information, as well as a microchip that can be used to identify them even if they get lost while they are not wearing their collar.
“Most pet parents can’t imagine leaving their pets behind in a natural disaster, but don’t actually have a plan to keep that from happening,” says Larissa Schenck, Director of Marketing at 1-800-PetMeds®. “Find out which hotels and emergency shelters around you are pet-friendly so you’ll know exactly where to go if your family has to evacuate.”
