Pasadena, Calif. (PRWEB) September 16, 2015 -- Sleepypod® reminds pet owners during National Preparedness Month that no matter where you live, a natural or manmade disaster could strike at any time with little to no warning. Too often pets can face dire circumstances as a result. Preparing in advance of an emergency will give you and your pets the best chance to stay safe.
In a new “Emergency Preparedness with Pets” video, pet travel and safety expert Melanie Monteiro provides vital readiness tips:
• Update pet identification tag and microchip
• Create an emergency pet buddy system
• Put together evacuation kits for you and your pet
• Make a list of emergency contacts
• Make a disaster plan with your family
• Order free pet rescue alert stickers
• Download pet safety apps
• Take your pet with you if you must evacuate
“Emergency Preparedness with Pets” is the next installment in the Ask the Pet Travel Experts video series by Sleepypod. Sleepypod is the maker of innovative pet travel products. View the video at http://youtu.be/jho0Up9bFP4.
