Is your pet prepared?!



September is Preparedness month - so just checking in to make sure you have a plan for your beloved pet!

Make sure you have a Pet disaster plan:
Red Cross disaster shelters cannot accept pets.  
• Know which hotels or motels outside your immediate area accept pets.
• Keep a list of boarding facilities and veterinarians who can shelter animals in an emergency.
Have a Pet disaster supplies kit:
Include medications and medical records, first aid kit, sturdy leash, harness, pet carrier, current photo of pet, food, water, bowls, cat litter pan, can opener, pet bed and toys.
Also include your veterinarian's number. Make sure your pets are weraing secure collars with up-to-date identification.

Hmm, can't say I have a preparedness plan for my dog. I should get on that.

Actually, I just stocked up on stuff for my dog at petmeds.com. Used checkout code "RADIO" and saved money as well.
