Pet GO BAG for Emergencies

Pet GO BAG for Emergencies

 An effective plan and preparation generally overcome life's challenges! This also applies to things we do not like to think about, such as disasters that could strike anytime in our day-to-day lives. A well-crafted plan and fast response make the difference in the outcome of an emergency. As you prepare for the wellbeing of your family, please make sure your pet is included in the plan. Whether you are injured in an accident that requires a hospital stay or other disaster like a fire, tornado, flood, earthquake, hurricane, etc. be prepared for your whole family.

Here are 4-steps you can take NOW for your pet’s emergency care:

  1. Keep ID/tags current

>Shop dog collars
>Shop cat collars
>Keep your pet’s tags up to date
>Stop tag noise with a FreezeTagTM pet tag holder

  1. Microchip your pet
  2. Establish a trusted temporary caregiver
  3. Build a go bag
What the heck is a go bag? Well, it has all the supplies your pet would need if you and your pet are forced to leave your home quickly or if a temporary caregiver must care for your pet. Be sure your caregiver has access (spare key or access code) to your home and knows where you keep the go bag.

Here are some important items to have in your pet’s go bag:

 Leashes, harnesses and/or carrier for transport

 Two weeks of food, bowls & feeding instructions

 Two weeks of medications with instructions

 Vet’s info, pet’s medical records & filled form below

 Bags to collect waste

 Bedding and comfort items such as toys
