HURRICANE IRMA AND YOUR PETS

Feed an easy-to-digest diet such as skinless boiled chicken with rice or potato if diarrhea is occurring.

If you do not have your pet’s medication, contact a veterinarian to see if medication your pet takes is vital to his wellbeing.

Be aware and cautious when approaching strays.
