Your pet’s world may be a very different place after a disaster. Know what to do to help make their transition as smooth and safe as possible.
SECURING – Familiar landmarks and smells might be gone and your pet will probably be disoriented. Pets can easily get lost in such situations. Keep your pets from roaming loose.
ROUTINES – Try to get them back into their normal routines as soon as possible.
PATIENCE – Be patient with behavioral problems that may result from the stress of the situation.
VETERINARIAN – If behavioral or health problems persist, talk to your veterinarian about what steps may be taken.
