Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes: Plan for Pets before the Disaster
In light of the recent tragedy in Oklahoma and with hurricane season just around the corner, doctors from BluePearl Veterinary Partners recommend that families remember their pets when making household emergency plans.
“Having an emergency plan in place for every member of your family, including your pets, is extremely important,” said Dr. Neil Shaw, chief medical officer of BluePearl Veterinary Partners. “Most importantly, talk with your family veterinarian to formulate an emergency plan specific to your pet’s needs.”
Additionally, doctors from BluePearl recommend speaking with your veterinarian about micro-chipping your pet, so in the event you and your pet are separated, your pet can be quickly identified and reunited with you.
Besides the destruction left in their paths, hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters like earthquakes are notorious for causing lengthy power outages and water shortages. Since your veterinarian may also be forced to evacuate, make sure you have a two-week supply of your pet’s medications, food and water.
