pets are important to us, so it stands to reason we should
have provisions put aside for them, also. If the power
or roads were out, or you had to leave your home quickly,
for whatever reason, are you prepared? As it can be a
stressful time for all, including your pets. Below is
a list, of some of the main all seasons items, I personally
have for my dog.
at least enough supplies to last for one week, or maybe
longer. The more pets you have, the more supplies, you
will need. While the list below may seem daunting for
some, you don’t have to rush out and buy everything
at once, shop around, don’t get caught up in all
the hype and pay over the top for pre-packaged kits.
fact, many of the items listed below, you probably already
have more than one of. So just put any spares in your
pets bag. Check out these links, Travelling with Dogs:
Pet First Aid and Travelling with Dogs: Hot Days, Cool
Dogs, for more items you may wish to add.
Water, make sure you have enough for a week.
Food, Buy some canned food or pouches and before many
of you throw your hands up in horror and say “I
am not feeding that”. Canned food or pouches have
a higher water content, so they will reduce the amount
of the water, your pet will need. A good idea is to buy
some for your pet to try, to see what he/she likes or
in mind, if you feed a total dry food diet. your pet will
need more water and don’t forget to include a can
opener (non electric) in your kit.
Proof of ownership and vaccinations, ID Tags, papers etc
Spare leads/collars etc and some form of portable containment
or tie out
First Aid Kit:
Medications, if your pet is on any medication, make sure
you have enough, so stock up.
Contact list, boarding kennels, friends, vets. (have them
written down in a note book, not just on your phone)
Toys, blankets, towels, coats and anything to keep your
Bowls for food and water, portable bowls are also a good
option, as they are lighter and can be packed away, when
not in use.
