Secondly, in case of evacuation and you must board your pets or take them to the shelter with you they must be current on their vaccinations. Get a copy of your pet’s vaccinations. Also, while at your veterinarian getting the vaccinations or vaccination records, please go ahead and get a copy of their medical records. Plus have a current photograph of your pet just in case something happens, and you get separated. If your pet is not microchipped it is strongly encouraged to get them microchipped as well as make sure they have a collar or harness on with their tags with their name, your name, contact information and any allergies. While you have the time, please list any medical conditions or behavior problems your pet may have. Also, their veterinarian’s information, feeding schedule and medication schedule. Keep the vaccinations, medical records, veterinarian’s information, and current photograph in a waterproof container ready to take with you.
Once you have all these items, it is best to place all the items into a sturdy waterproof container, label the container and leave it easily accessible throughout the season. The last thing you want to do is racing or digging around to find it while you should be evacuating. Which brings me to our final point; make sure your evacuation plans are made well in advance. This is the time to prepare NOT when the evacuation or emergency is here.
