You may have ideas, plans or supplies ready for you and your family to deal with an emergency, but your furry and feathered children have different needs, specialized needs. Here is a new book just out, as Chicken Soup for the Soul Author Raymond Aaron says, “A must read!” How To Save Your Pet From A Disaster, THE essential emergency preparedness guide for feathered friends and fur babies. It even won and international book award for the “Best Pet Care Guidebook.”
Our treasured pets provide us with:
Reduce our stress level and give us emotional support
Positive social activities and help us interact with other people
Positive emotional and social values.
Many people count on pets for therapy and are even taken to nursing homes, hospitals, care centers to encourage interaction and activities.
Amazing pets can be trained not only to entertain but in serious stuff like in rescue procedures, medical alerts, and detection, disability assistance… amazing things.
Pet’s save people’s lives on a daily basis.
Expect that some animals will do unexpected things in the stress of an emergency
Our responsibilities towards our pets
One of our primary responsibilities towards our pets is ensuring their health, peace and welfare. As responsible “parents” and pet owners, we need to ensure that our animals are protected, even when the situation is not “normal.”
I became more aware of these strong feelings when one summer… I was sleeping, and it started hailing. Would you believe what the first thought was that came to mind?
“Ahhh! My Iron and Joe (parrots) are on the terrace..!”
Don’t expect them to cooperate in a crazy moment of hurry-up!
They were well covered, but any hail stone could have been proven fatal for them.
I frantically ran and brought them in. I was terrified and really concerned about them.
Are they afraid of the hail and storm?
The tiny hearts were beating fast, and that feeling insulated me with more and more precautions for every next situation. I started thinking of each possible situation that can be harmful or tough for them.
I started preparing for any emergency, no matter its relation to them or something nature throws at us.
So you need to
Keep a prepared document: A document with emergency phone numbers like the rescue or vet. Average temperature and breathing details.
Stay alert: About the food, allergies, sickness or injuries, and their possible first aid.
Access signs: Some vital signs can save you and your pet from a lot
Know the basics: About environmental and weather conditions that can harm your pet.
Be prepared: About natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, storms, etc.

Your dear possessions other than pets.
Like your pets, your most treasured possessions that enrich your life and document your heritage are mostly uninsurable!
Irreplaceable items that would give you heartache if they were lost or damaged.
All of these types of treasures in your life are so important; you can hardly list them in order of importance! To have them damaged or lost would cause recurring heartache for a long time.
Having written this, you’re thinking maybe about your original family history photos, letters, certificates, and heirlooms. .. and you would be right!
Its odd to think that a book would discuss both pets and heirlooms but the author is an art conservator who often, in his lab, restores artwork damaged by pets! Often, in an emergency, heirlooms and pets may both, together, be put into the back of the car for transport. BAD IDEA!!
So tips are given from the expert on how to avoid long term heartache by damaging, wounding, losing pets and heirlooms in the event of an emergency.
The book includes/comes with an email continuing education/reminder “program” that reminds you to take action, why you bought the book and tells you fun and entertaining stories (No spam). Order from Amazon, at https://www.amazon.com/How-Save-Your-Pet-Disaster/dp/B08GVJLPGL/ .
While at a glance, it looks like a pet care book, actually, If your house was on fire and you had to grab and go, would you grab your house pet or your family heirloom? Both are heartfelt treasures that you would regret losing… for years. But heirlooms and house pets don’t mix!!! At any given time we can have items in the lab damaged by pets… its quite common. This book is full of tips for protecting your pet and collectible care and maintenance.
If you are driving with the sweet pet unrestrained
and you hit the brakes, this baby is going flying into the windshield!
Tips and reminder will help you feel like a “good parent” and be prepared.
“Always such interesting, useful and exciting posts, thank you!”
