How To Prepare For A Pet Emergency
Our Emergency Prep Guide is intended to offer you suggestions and tips on how to prepare for and survive a variety of possible emergencies with which you might be confronted at home, in your office or workplace, and on the road. What you should do and the things you might need to have on hand. While there are some obvious similarities among different kinds of emergency...for example a possible power outage might well occur alone, or during a hurricane, forest fire, snowstorm or flood...each kind of emergency brings with it certain unique needs.
In the coming weeks, we will try to cover those unique preparation needs...for a Quick Escape Emergency Evacuation, for a Road Emergency, for a Prolonged Blackout, for a Sudden Severe Storm, for a Bird Flu Pandemic.

In the U.S., pets outnumber humans by about 60 million. 63% of all households own a pet, 45% own more than one. We own an estimated 73 million dogs, 90 million cats. We spend over $1500 per year on a dog, over $900 on a cat, including the vet, food, boarding, grooming, vitamins, treats and toys. There are no estimates for emergency supplies.
Hurricane Katrina was a wake-up call for emergency preparation, not only for ourselves but also for our pets.
Of an estimated 250,000 pets left behind in New Orleans, only about 15,000 were rescued. These suffered from heartworm disease, internal and external parasites, dehydration, trauma, wounds from debris and standing water, malnutrition, lethargy and exhaustion, according to the American Veterinary medical Association.
