"Emergency Preparedness : What Every Dog Owner Should Know About Emergency Veterinary Care"

Disasters come in many forms: fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, storms, floods, hurricanes, and even acts of terrorism. Do you know how to protect your animals in extreme weather conditions or disasters?

Excluding animals from evacuation plans puts animals, pet owners, and first responders at risk. Even if you try to create a safe place for them, the animals left behind in the disaster will be injured, lost, or worse.

Be prepared: Make a plan and prepare disaster supplies for your pet. First, learn about the hazards that may affect your area and consider options for caring for your pet. Disasters can happen without notice, so be prepared: Make sure your pets are locked up and tagged with up-to-date contact information and other identification information.

Microchip your pet – this is one of the best ways to ensure that you and your pet can be reunited after separation. Be sure to register your microchip with the manufacturer and keep your contact information with the microchip company up to date. Place a rope and/or rope near the exit. Make sure you have the appropriate equipment (carrier, harness, pet harness) to get your pet into the vehicle. Prepare animal disaster supplies for the evacuation of your entire family. Seek help from your veterinarian to prepare your pet’s medical records.

Make a plan If you need to vacate your home, plan where you and your pets will stay. Animals may not be allowed to enter local shelters unless they are herd animals. Many disaster relief centers (such as Red Cross evacuation centers) do not accept pets and other animals.

Check out shelters or outside friends or relatives where your pets and other animals can live. If you cannot return home immediately, find a hostel or animal hospital near your evacuation center. Establish a relationship if you are not at home in an emergency. Ask a trusted neighbor who can check on your pet and remove your pet if needed. Find a veterinarian or animal shelter in the area where you can find temporary shelter and add the vet’s contact information to your emergency kit.
