Disaster Preparedness for Pets

(Originally posted August 25, 2017)

A natural disaster is a stressful event for pets and people. Unfortunately, Kelowna has been plagued by floods and fires this year, and the wild weather is showing no signs of abating.

If you do need to evacuate, a little preplanning, such as knowing where you will go if evacuated, can help enormously.

Having supplies from home makes uprooting much easier on your pet, so pack a grab bag with pet care essentials. Download a Packing List for your Emergency Pet Plan here.

Kennels and emergency shelters may require vaccine history for your pets. We store our records online and can operate our office remotely, from anywhere. If our clients are evacuated and have to access records, all they need to do is call or email an de we can send their pet's file or vaccine history anywhere.

But if your veterinarian isn't cloud-based, ask them to email you a copy of your pet’s prescription and vaccine history ahead of time, so you can access records when you need them.

Finally, take your pets with you on the first notice to evacuate: if you leave the house, you may not be allowed to go back for them.
