The recent hurricanes are a reminder of the force of Mother Nature. In California we are much more likely to experience an earthquake, but there are areas that flood here during the winter, and that may increase as our climate continues to change.
We all should have a disaster plan which includes our pets. Our emergency kit should include canned pet food, leashes, collapsible pet carriers for cats and small dogs, a copy of vaccination data, and plenty of water to share with the whole family. Please consider microchipping all of your pets—but collars with identification tags are essential, if there is not a microchip present.
There will soon be many pets from the hurricane-stricken areas that will be up for adoption locally. Should you add one to your family, come in for a complimentary exam and a lot of gratitude.
