By Trigger Man Subscribe to RSS | February 28th 2012 | Views:

Pet first aid kits are an indispensable fraction of the survival of pets whenever there are emergencies. The significance of being prepared for calamities is not only for yourself and your family, but also for your pets has been very well noted after a lot of dead pets were seen after the devastating Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane hit a number of areas in the southern regions of the United States. There are several cats and dogs, and even those exotic pets were just lying in the road on their own as people flee as far away as possible because of the incoming hurricane. This was a very sad true story. If only people have planned ahead for this; both owners and pets would have a better chance in surviving these unexpected emergencies and big disasters.

Putting together your pet first aid kit is one of the very first things you should do to help make sure the survival and pleasure of your family pet in the course of emergency predicaments. Keep in mind that pets are much more delicate than human beings when it comes to experiencing unfortunate occurrences or natural disasters, so there is a large probability that they will behave violently or restlessly prior to, for the duration of and even just after the disaster. For this reason, you will need to include things like pet safety items for instance pet carriers, possible movement triggered dog tags, and lighted collars. Needless to say, you also need to supply disaster survival pet foods and drinking water for your cherished canine friends, birds, or cats. It is essential that you check out the food and water supply of your pets on a regular basis to make sure that they are good when catastrophe hits. We would highly recommend that you maintain at least a three day supply of emergency water and food for your family pet, just like is advised for your emergency equipment.

Aside from water and food, your pet first aid kits will need to also include chew sticks, blankets, and even toys and games to aid them manage for the duration of emergency conditions. If you will be keeping yourself in evacuation facilities, it is a very good idea to take alongside Wag bags or poop bags to preserve the cleanliness of the place. In case your evacuation area does not permit pets on the inside for hygienic causes, you need to create a back-up strategy about exactly where your pet can stay. An alternate shelter or having a pet carrier for your pet is vital for its survival, so do not fail to remember about this.

A very good pet first aid equipment and a three day supply of water and food are seriously crucial if you address your pet as a fellow member of your family. You will be thankful you were well prepared in advance.
