JUNE Pet Care Tips

  • Adopt a Shelter Cat Month – Please adopt, here is the complete list of NH shelters, and rescues, including Cat Only Organizations – NH Shelter/Rescue List
  • Holidays – Father’s Day – book early if you plan on taking that special Dad out for the day or away on a fun weekend
  • Be Prepared – Another hurricane season is coming. Read through our Disaster Planning for you and your pets and make plans if ever you need to evacuate. Go over these plans once a year with your family. Better to be safe and knowledgeable than in a crisis, panicked and have no plan.
  • Remember that if you need to evacuate, ALWAYS take all pets with you
  • Hot Cars and Pets don’t Mix – Having your dog go with you in your car is fun but it can be deadly. Even if you leave the windows down a little the inside of your car can heat up FAST. Good rule of thumb is that if the temperature outside is 60 degrees or more, leave your pet home. It could save their life. For more information – ASPCA , Hot Car Flyer, Your Car is an oven, Signs of Heatstroke and Dehydration in Dogs
  • 4 Things to do, if you must bring your pet with you, so you don’t leave your pets in the car
    1. Use only drive thrus for picking up food, medicine, etc.
    2. Bring a friend who can stay in your running air conditioned car or who can take your dog on a leashed walk while you run into the store to do your errands
    3. Run your errands only at pet friendly stores, where your pet can shop and browse with you
    4. if you are going out to eat, eat at a pet friendly outdoor cafe
  • Make your reservation Now for your July pet care reservation.
  • If you adopt a puppy or dog this month – CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Mid Day Let out so they have a break while you are at work and you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.
  • If you adopt a kitten or cat this month – CONGRATULATIONS !!  Register online ASAP to set up Feline Fun Time, we can take care of the litter box and give then one on one attention while you are at work, plus you will be ready when you may need a pet care visit anytime in the future.

 Certified Animal Disaster First Responder explains

What you should do to plan and prepare in case of disaster

for you, your family and pets

Author, Dorinne Whynott, Owner of Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

 

Every year disaster hits in the US. It could be a hurricane, tornado, blizzard, fire. However, it could also be a water main break, fuel tank truck accident, a deranged person on the loose!!

Disaster Planning for you and your pets NOW is essential to ensure less stress all around.

As the owner of one of the largest pet sitting companies in New Hampshire and the owner of quite a few pets of my own, I was concerned after 9/11, what I should be doing to keep my family safe. I researched and found classes to become certified through a few organizations and compiled quite a lot of great information.
Here are 6 ideas to do now and have ready if you ever get that knock on the door that says you need to leave NOW

  • Never leave your pets.

You don’t know how bad the situation is or isn’t. You don’t know if or when you may return, it could be minutes, hours, days, weeks or never, depending on the situation. Also, the situation may look not that bad now, but it could always get worse. Be on the safe side and take them with you.

 

  • Have a “go” bag for you and your pets. Have one per person and per pet ( multiple pets can be combined).

For people, It should have a few days clothes, all weather gear, extra shoes, extra self care products (shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, other personal care items), medications.

For pets, extra collars, leashes, a crate for each pet ( in case cats need to be crated for long times, it needs to be big enough for a bed, Litterboxes, food/ water), any special food, medications.

Have an area in your closet or pantry that you always stock and rotate to “go” food, such as bottled water (rule is 1 gallon per person per day, approx. 1 gallon per 2-4 dogs/6-9 cats per day, depending on sizes and medical), protein bars, canned food, portable plates, utensils, etc.

 

  • Have a list of places you could go with your pets.

Find multiple places that allow pets located out of your neighborhood, out of your town, maybe an hour away and maybe out of your state. In a rush of a disaster or emergency, the leg work you do here will be priceless. Why do you need so many? It depends on the emergency/ disaster. If it is something contained in your neighborhood, you really don’t need to travel so far but if it is a state emergency, you maybe forced to go farther. Having multiple listings will help you call and make reservations quickly before places book up. Everyone else will be in your same situation, so the faster you are in calling, the faster you will be in a place all settled. Places to consider could be family, friends, pet friendly hotels/ motels, bed and breakfasts, etc.

 

  • Make sure everyone in your home knows the plan

Everyone should know what to do, where to go and who to check in with so everyone knows each other is safe. In case cell phones are down as in the Boston bombings, have a few designated people out of state that all family members know to call. If for whatever reason, your family is split up because it happens while you are at work, school, shopping etc. , every one in your family needs to know the plan.

 

  • What about when I’m away and you are pet sitting for us?

We always ask for two emergency people, preferably one is within walking distance. This person should have a key to your home and is willing in this type of situation to help your pets. This should be prearranged. This is only for a disaster emergency situation. Whether roads are impassable or evacuation. Can’t I depend on my pet sitter? No, if roads are impassable, then we can’t get there. Also, we literally have hundreds of pets in our care daily. We can not transport or house that many. Our disaster plan is to do what we can by keeping them in their own homes, we will make sure all pets have extra food and water, put pets in a designated place in a home if owners choose.

If we are able to stay with pets in the home, especially with any medical issues we will, but its not always possible.

If we can take pets with us we will, but again, it’s not always possible.

You need to have a plan B. A trusted neighbor who only has to help their family and your pets in this emergency is more likely then us helping over 100 pets scattered all over.

 

  • Plan, plan, plan.

We all tend to think it happens some where else to some one else. We all get busy and forget. When I was being certified for Animal Disaster Response, I researched as much as I could from many resources. I compiled this information into my “Disaster Planning for You and Your Pets”. There is a lot of information, ideas and suggestions. If you could break it down and do just a few things every week, you will eventually be prepared. If you never need to use your plan, great but if you are ever in this situation, with your mind in panic mode, you will have a step by step guide to follow. When you and your family, (human and pets) are all safe, you will be glad you prepared.

Do you want more ideas? I have researched and compiled all the information on disaster planning from many organizations such as Red Cross, Humane Society of the US, American Humane Association, FEMA and more!
