Prepare Your Pet Emergency Supply Kit!
 
- Just as you do with your family’s emergency supply kit, think first about the basics for survival, particularly food and water. Consider two kits. In one, put everything you and your pets will need to stay where you are. The other should be a lightweight, smaller version you can take with you if you and your pets have to get away. Plus, be sure to review your kits regularly to ensure that their contents, especially foods and medicines, are fresh.
 
- Food. Keep at least three days of food in an airtight, waterproof container.
 
- Water. Store at least three days of water specifically for your pets in addition to water you need for yourself and your family.
 
- Medicines and medical records. Keep an extra supply of medicines your pet takes on a regular basis in a waterproof container.
 
- First aid kit. Talk to your veterinarian about what is most appropriate for your pet’s emergency medical needs. Most kits should include cotton bandage rolls, bandage tape and scissors; antibiotic ointment; fl ea and tick prevention; latex gloves, isopropyl alcohol and saline solution. Include a pet first aid reference book.
