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.

Many of these tips are easily added to a precautionary plan that you might already have created. A few more simple steps can go a long way when disaster strikes. For all of your storm damage questions and concerns, please call 952-403-1050. We'd love to settle any anxieties you may have.
