Ways On How To Keep Your Pets Safe

Aug 21, 2008
Not all things are always in our control. Somehow, someone out there have much better control over us. But even then something is always bigger and some things are always not under our jurisdiction. It is during these events that we need to be prepared of. It is not because we have a very strong family and sturdy house to begin with that we should get sloppy in our guard against unexpected events that will befall us. Planning ahead not only for yourself but also for your pets will make life easier.

Keep images of all your pets in the household along with all your important documents and essential documents you might have. Include into your pet documentation all the distinguishing marks they certainly have. Store them in plastic pouches or better yet laminate them for better safe-keeping.

Keep pet food and water-supply enough to last at least two weeks or so. Make this a rule always. Store them properly by putting them inside airtight containers. Always have your pet's favorite treats with them because warm-blooded as they are get stressed too.

Put tags or collars on your pet bearing your name, address and contact information in case they get lost. By doing this you are grossly increasing your chance of finding them.

Always have a leash available on your car to keep dogs safe even when you are outside your home because disaster and accidents don't happen only inside the home. They can happen absolutely anywhere.

Have all back-up medications that you pets may have available all the time. It is very unlikely that veterinarians are available during disasters and calamities. During emergency, you need to assume that you are on your own and that you can depend on nobody but yourself.

You need to have pet carriers readily available for evacuation purposes. These may be the ones you usually use when you are travelling with your pets or camping out with them. Whatever your carrier is, you need to make sure they are always available.

Keep friendly terms in your neighborhood because they will be able to help you during emergencies especially when you're not at home. They will be on the look out for your pets which is actually a good thing and an advantage for you. However you need to return this favor to look out theirs when they are out of their house too. This is a very good system to follow.

Pet's need you comfort too. Just like you, they are predisposed to being frightened and afraid. Having you near them will surely help ease their burden. This is one way of understanding.

Keep the routines. Whatever they do and whatever they eat, you should let them continue with this. Keep everything the same. The normality will ease them all up.

Those are just few things you need to remember during any emergency for your pet. Just remember that your pet need you as much as you need them and this will keep everything going.
