Disaster Safety Tips for Thornton Dogs and Cats?
Pet Safety Tips for Disaster Situations
Being prepared for a disaster is always a good thing, and during a severe storm or a major weather event, our pets will rely even more heavily on us for their safety. SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Thornton and on average, March is the snowiest month in Denver. Here are some winter pet safety tips from the Humane Society of the United States:
- If pets cannot come indoors, make sure they are protected by a dry, draft-free enclosure large enough to allow them to sit and lie down, but small enough to hold in the pet’s body heat. Raise the floor a few inches off the ground and cover it with cedar shavings or straw. Turn the enclosure away from the wind and cover the doorway with waterproof burlap or heavy plastic.
- Salt and other chemicals used to melt snow and ice can irritate a pet’s paws. Wipe their paws with a damp towel before your pet licks them and irritates their mouth.
- Antifreeze is a deadly poison. Wipe up spills and store antifreeze out of reach.
