Prepare for Pet Emergency Before it Happens

The CDC has a great tool which can help any pet owner prepare for natural disasters or unexpected emergencies. The article is titled Pet Disaster Preparedness Kit and is a great read for preparing your family for emergency situations before they happen.

There is also a good blog called BringFido that covers details about Pet Emergency Preparedness.

Pets are a part of the family, and it’s important to include them in your emergency preparedness plan. Here are some tips for keeping your pets safe in the event of a disaster:

  • Create an emergency kit for your pets. This kit should include food, water, medications, a first aid kit, and any other supplies your pet may need for at least three days.
  • Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags. The tags should have your current contact information, including your address and phone number.
  • Have a plan for evacuating with your pets. If you have to evacuate, make sure you have a way to transport your pets safely. This may mean having a pet carrier, a car seat, or a trailer for larger animals.
  • Know where to go if you have to evacuate with your pets. Many shelters do not accept pets, so it’s important to have a backup plan. You may want to consider staying with friends or family who have pets, or you may want to find a pet-friendly hotel.
  • Practice your emergency plan with your pets. This will help to reduce stress and make the process go more smoothly if you ever have to evacuate.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure the safety of your pets in the event of a disaster.

Here are some additional tips for pet preparedness:

  • Get your pets microchipped. Microchipping is a permanent way to identify your pet, and it can help you to be reunited if your pet is lost.
  • Keep your pets’ vaccinations up to date. Vaccinations can help to protect your pets from diseases that can spread during a disaster.
  • Make sure your pets are spayed or neutered. Spaying and neutering can help to reduce the number of unwanted animals, which can be a problem in the aftermath of a disaster.
  • Talk to your veterinarian about other ways to prepare your pets for a disaster. Your veterinarian may have additional recommendations for keeping your pets safe.
  • Keep your FindPetWatcher account up to date! and be sure your placard is in a very visible place and that you have plenty of wallet sized cards with you.

By taking the time to prepare for a disaster, you can help to ensure the safety of your pets and your family.

The Importance of Having a Pet Sitter

Pets are a part of the family, and when you have to go away, it can be hard to leave them behind. But if you’re going to be gone for more than a few hours, it’s important to have someone to come and check on them. A pet sitter can provide your furry friends with companionship, food, water, and exercise while you’re away.

There are many benefits to having a pet sitter. For one, it can help to reduce stress levels for both you and your pet. When you know that your pet is being taken care of, you can relax and enjoy your trip without worrying about them. Additionally, a pet sitter can help to prevent problems like accidents, injuries, or illness. If your pet is left alone for too long, they may start to exhibit destructive behaviors or become anxious or depressed. A pet sitter can help to prevent these problems by providing your pet with regular attention and exercise.

If you’re thinking about leaving your pet at a kennel, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, kennels can be expensive. Second, not all kennels are created equal. Some kennels are more crowded and noisy than others, which can be stressful for your pet. Finally, kennels can be a breeding ground for diseases, so it’s important to choose a kennel that has a good reputation and takes steps to prevent the spread of disease.

If you decide to hire a pet sitter, there are a few things you should do to find the right person for the job. First, ask your friends, family, and neighbors for recommendations. Second, interview several potential sitters and ask them about their experience, rates, and availability. Third, make sure the sitter is insured and bonded. Finally, provide the sitter with a detailed list of your pet’s needs, including feeding times, medications, and any special instructions.

Having a pet sitter can be a great way to ensure that your furry friend is well-cared for while you’re away. By taking the time to find the right person for the job, you can help to ensure that your pet has a happy and healthy experience.

Here are some additional tips for choosing a pet sitter:

  • Ask for references and check them.
  • Get everything in writing, including rates, hours, and responsibilities.
  • Be clear about your expectations, including feeding times, walks, and playtime.
  • Provide the sitter with a copy of your pet’s medical records.
  • Trust your gut. If you don’t feel comfortable with the sitter, don’t hire them.

Having a pet sitter can give you peace of mind when you’re away from home. By following these tips, you can find a sitter who will provide your pet with the love and care they deserve.
