Disaster Preparedness for Pets


Dr. Doug Kratt, AVMA President

With another hurricane making landfall and wildfires continuing out west, disaster preparedness is the topic of conversation with Dr. Doug Kratt, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World national radio show. Bottom line: Being prepared will save pets’ lives.

Dr. Kratt says always if you can evacuate with your pet DO THAT! Don’t leave pets behind.

Dr. Kratt suggests having a “to-go” kit for your pets – and he explains what that is.

We also discuss carrier training and the importance of that because often you don’t have time to chase a cat around the house to stuff kitty into the carrier. And there’s lots of information about that including a free handout from the American Association of Feline Practitioners and information on the Fear Free Happy Homes website.

Also, there’s further information HERE from the American Veterinary Medical Association.
