When you make your animal disaster preparedness kit, include your animals..
 

Here are a few suggestions for your disaster preparedness kit:

1. A COLLAR AND TAG
A proper fitting collar and an identification tag should be kept on your dog at all times. You may also want to include a phone number that is out of the area in case you are forced to evacuate and can not be reached by your local phone number. You might even want to talk to your vet about microchipping.

2. FIRST AID KIT
Check with your veterinarian to find out what he/she recommends for you to include in your animal’s first aid kit.

3. CRATE or CAGE
You might want to consider purchasing a crate or cage to contain your animal in case of a disaster. This can be used for transportation or even a place for housing your pet.

(Just a note from the author: We own a cat that is very shy. She was afraid of the cat carrier so I found a place in the den and put a blanket in it and her cat toy. It didn’t take long before she found her way in there and now finds that a great place to rest. And sometimes I just take her for a ride in the car.)

4. BLANKET AND TOYS
Why not consider a blanket or toys that you could add to your disaster preparedness kit?

5. TRAVEL BOWL SET
I found a great fold-up bowl in its own carrying case. For larger dogs, there's a web cuff to flip up that makes the bowl deeper. The bowl holds 4 cups of dry food or 20 oz. of water, and measures 10" across x 2" high.

6. COLLAR ID FOR LESS THAN $3
A Collar ID for the dog on the go is a great place to put your contact information and it attaches to your animals collar or halter.

7. A CURRENT PHOTO
While you are taking photos, why not take some extra photos of your companion animal or horse?

In fact, why not have someone take a photo of you with your animal. This can be used to help identify your animals if somehow you get separated.
 

8. WHAT ABOUT A DAY TRIP BELT PACK?
What a great gift for under $35! It includes four easy pieces: a deluxe belt pack, food pouch (holds 3 cups) adjustable clip-on leash for hands-free walking and fold-up travel bowl with features galore.


9. WHAT ABOUT A BACK PACK FOR YOUR DOG?
This go-everywhere set includes two roomy compartments, a pack-up travel bowl and a 45" adjustable leash that doubles as a shoulder strap when you want to carry the load

(Gifts #6 through #9 I found on the web at www.realboss.com)

10. DO NOT FORGET YOUR HORSES!
They could use a water storage bin or even a blanket. Or maybe it’s just time to start putting a disaster preparedness kit together for them that includes things like a cotton rope, wire cutters, horse treats, an extra halter, a bucket, etc.

This year make it an extra special season by giving your companion animal something that one day could help during disasters.
