Live Alone? Always Have A Plan For Your Pets

Yesterday, one of our elderly neighbors had to be taken to the hospital. She lives alone and doesn’t have any relatives that live nearby. She owns a little dog whom she adores. Luckily another kind neighbor took the dog until my neighbor returns from the hospital.

It is very important for anyone living alone, to have a plan for your pets in case of an emergency. A hospital stay can be many days so pets need to be looked after during this time. If you live alone and don’t have any relatives living nearby, make a plan with a neighbor or friend to care for your pets while you’re gone. Make sure they have access to your home, know you pets routines. If your pet is on medication, make sure that the person caring for your pet knows how and when to administer the medication. Also it’s vital that the care taker know where all food and medication are located. You may also talk to your vet. They may offer advice on how to have your pet cared for in an emergency.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Make a plan for your best little friend or friends now, you’ll be glad you did!

Remember, your pets count!
