Hurricane preparedness for pets

Thursday, August 25, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

Many areas along the east coast are preparing for evacuation in preparation for hurricane Irene. Our pets depend on us for their safety. Never leave them behind! You don’t know how long you’ll be away. You don’t know the condition of your property until they have to return.  Your pets may not survive on their own. Be smart,  plan for your pets evacuation along with your own. Pack at least three days of pet food and water for your pet. Pack any medications that you may need as well have make sure that your pet is wearing a collar displaying his name, your name and address. e-mail address and telephone number.  Take along all important documents. We mentioned some of these things yesterday.

If you are not evacuating, do not attempt to walk your dog in the middle of a hurricane. Dangerous conditions could harm both you and your pet. Wait until the storm passes before taking your dog outside.

As of now, hurricane Irene is predicted to impact the US East coast all the way from North Carolina to Maine and beyond. Prepare now, it’s going to be a tough weekend!
