Pet care tips

Traveling with a pet

  • Be sure your pet's vaccinations are up to date.
  • Be sure your cat or dog wears a properly fitted collar with a current ID and rabies tag at all times.
  • Take a leash with you when you travel.

If a pet must stay behind

  • Bring pet indoors well ahead of a storm.
  • Do not leave it tied up outside or tied up during a hurricane.
  • Leave only dry-type food to discourage overeating.
  • Don't leave a cat and dog together, even if they are normally friendly.
  • Leave water in bath tub or other sturdy containers that will not spill.
  • Provide access to high places, such as countertops, in case flooding occurs.
