Protecting Your Pets During a Storm
Precautions are necessary when a thunderstorm or flash flooding is upon us. Thankfully, as humans, we know the importance of having a plan of actions. However, our furry friends are not so capable. For some, your pets are your family and just like a family heirloom they hold importance. Preparing for a storm can be overwhelming and can be even more chaotic if you have a frantic animal around.
Protect Your Furry Little Friends
- Keep your pets inside. If left outdoors, they could be hurt by damaging winds or run away due to fear.
- Ensure you have proper supplies for your pet. Water, non-perishable pet food, their medications, leashes and ID tags, and a first aid kit.
- Microchip your pets. If your animal runs away, a microchip makes you reachable if they were to be found by an animal shelter or vet.
- Pet ID: Make sure that your pet has tags that are up to date and accurate. Always include a phone number as well as your name.
Keeping your best friends safe is always a priority. Make sure you are prepared to care for those who look to you for safety everyday.
