Prepping your pet for a tornado
It's that time of the year again when rampant weather puts you and your loved ones as risk. While you may be able to go over tornado safety drills with your relatives, your pets may not be able to understand the commotion going on outside.
This is why you may want to consider taking extra precautions for your furry friend if a tornado were to strike. First, if your pet is primarily outdoors, be sure to wrangle them inside before the weather gets too bad. Should you be unable to find your pet quickly, or they escape during the storm, prepare in advance by making sure they have a collar with the proper identification.
Just like you have extra supplies on hand for your family, you should keep products ready for your pet as well. These may include extra pet food and pet drugs, and DuraPet bowls if you believe you might be unable to get to the store for a while. If your dog is taking medication and typically has difficulty ingesting it, be sure to have Greenies Pill Pockets on hand to help ease the process when you may not have the time to help your dog take its medication.
Because you should stay in the safest room in the house during a tornado, having extra pet food and dishes in the area can be a way to take care of your pet and keep them in the area. Also, having a crate in the space could help if your animal is having a hard time staying contained.
Additionally, having dog steps can be helpful if you need to make a quick getaway in your car and you're unable to lift your furry friend into the vehicle in a timely manner. The steps can also help in the event that your pet is injured during the storm and it needs help getting around. It's always important to take the precaution so you're not scrambling during a worst-case scenario.
Remember, pets typically can sense bad weather on the horizon, so it's important to keep them as calm as possible. Certain pet drugs can help keep them sedentary, which will not only make it easier for you to deal with them, but they also won't be feeling as scared with what's going on outside. Make sure you have calming aids like Quiet Moments on hand to help your pet through this experience, which could cause it anxiety.
