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.
Have 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.
In 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.
1. Water, make
sure you have enough for a week.
2. 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 doesn’t
Keep 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.

ownership and vaccinations, ID Tags, papers etc

etc and some form of portable containment or tie out
