As Hurricane Harvey reminds us, our environment can change in shocking and devastating ways. Floods and mudslides—generally the result of heavy rain and snow—are very unpredictable, but far from the only natural disasters that put our pets at great risk.
What natural disasters may strike me and my pet?
[Editor’s Note: While a disaster could strike at any time and in any form, what follows is a list of disasters that have frequently affected many pets at a time.]
All of these natural events can be locally and personally devastating. Fortunately, proper preparation can minimize the loss of property and life—both human and animal.
How can I keep my pet safe during a natural disaster?
While some disasters, such as hurricanes, may give you a little time to prepare, most give no warning, and unless preparations have been made the loss of human and animal life and separation from family members may dwarf the physical destruction. So just how do you, as a pet owner, make preparations for a disaster?
Take steps now to protect your family pets. We never know when a crisis will occur, but we can prepare for the possibility.
If you have any questions or concerns, you should always visit or call your veterinarian -- they are your best resource to ensure the health and well-being of your pets.
