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 your pet has been without food, feed small meals more frequently to avoid stomach upset.
Your pet senses your stress. Petting your dog/cat can help reduce stress for both of you.
Dogs and cats can become aggressive in stressful situations or when injured.
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.
Boil water for one minute to kill bacteria harmful to you and your pets.
Watch for hot spots on your pet’s skin. Cover and keep dry.
If you rescue a pet, check for a microchip when safe to attend a clinic or shelter.
If you have lost a pet, post notices, and contact veterinary clinics and shelters.
