It is important to consider how you can quickly evacuate your pets in an emergency. Discuss a plan with your family and have a kit ready to go and easily accessible. Start with a plastic bin to hold the items together. Items to add:
Have carriers ready to go for your smaller pets and birds. Keep readied carriers and emergency evacuation kit easily accessible to you. You should be able to have your pets ready to transport within a few minutes. Be sure to keep the evacuation kit contents fresh and well dated. Check every couple of months.
Always remember that any first aid administered to your pet should be followed by immediate veterinary care. First aid care is not a substitute for veterinary care, but it may save your pet’s life until it receives veterinary treatment.
