Plan Ahead for Pet Emergencies

Monday, August 15, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

Veterinary technician Virginia Rudde of the Minnesota School of Business says that when it comes to protecting a pet during an emergency, it’s critical that you plan ahead. Make sure that your whole family is in on the plan and everyone knows what their part is. This will make the rescue process go much smoother.  Keep a collar and leash, the dog carrier or pet carrier, food and water and your pets medical records on hand in case that you need to evacuate. She also recommends getting your pets micro-chipped or having other permanent ID that won’t be affected if your pet is lost or injured. During a disaster, energency personnel may ask your neighbors if a pet is inside your home. Consider giving them a list of emergency contacts who could answer any questions about your pet in your absence.

Remember, pets are family!
