Emergency Supplies and Traveling Kits for Pets - Pixie Bigelow - Facebook.

Emergency Supplies and Traveling Kits
Keep an Evac-Pack and supplies handy for your pets. Make sure that everyone in the family knows where it is. This kit should be clearly labeled and easy to carry. Items to consider keeping in or near your pack include:
• Pet first-aid kit
• 3-7 days' worth of canned (pop-top) or dry food (be sure to rotate every two months)
• Disposable litter trays (aluminum roasting pans are perfect)
• Litter or paper toweling
• Liquid dish soap and disinfectant
• Pet feeding dishes
• Extra collar or harness as well as an extra leash
• Photocopies of medical records and a waterproof container with a two-week supply of any medicine your pet requires (Remember, food and medications need to be rotated out of your emergency kit-otherwise they may go bad or become useless.)
• Bottled water, at least 7 days' worth for each person and pet (store in a cool, dry place and replace every two months)
• A traveling bag, crate or sturdy carrier, ideally one for each pet
• Flashlight
• Blanket (for scooping up a fearful pet)
• Recent photos of your pets (in case you are separated and need to make "Lost" posters)
• Especially for cats: Pillowcase or EvackSack, toys, scoopable litter
• Especially for dogs: Extra leash, toys and chew toys, a week's worth of cage liner.
You should also have an emergency kit for the human members of the family. Items to include: Batteries, duct tape, flashlight, radio, multi-tool, tarp, rope, permanent marker, spray paint, baby wipes, protective clothing and footwear, extra cash, rescue whistle, important phone numbers, extra medication and copies of medical and insurance information.

FIREWORKS & PETS -- IMPORTANT Tips, Advice and Information @http://www.drkatrina.com/yourpet/PetTips/FireworksandandPets.aspx - This page works well also for tips, advice and information in regards to storms and your pet.

When your Pet first goes missing, please do the following.

* Post your LOST pet notice including photo and detailed information on our wall.

* Make sure their Registration and Microchip information is up to date

* Place large Posters up around the area, with a photo and description of your pet and contact details. Please ensure any photos you use in your posters are clear/high quality photos so as people can easily identify your lost pet (the same applies for posting photos online). If you want to offer a reward put "REWARD OFFERED" and do not disclose the amount at any time !

* Ask neighbours to check in and around their yard (and on their roof as some cats have be known to become 'stuck' on a roof)

* Walk around your neighbourhood, looking and asking if anyone has seen your pet (it's advised that you be holding up your lost pet flyer so people will know you are not a salesperson thus will be more receptive)

* Place Lost ads in the local and national news papers in your area (if you have the budget), also place online ads with all the Lost and Found sites in your area

Also check Gumtree and your local pound

★ REMEMBER ★ NEVER give up looking for your pet, they want you to find them ! :-)
