Hurricane Pet Safety
With Tropical Storm Cindy approaching, the Gulf Coast is starting to prepare. There is so much to be done before the storm, but have you stopped and thought about what you can do for your pets? It’s very common for your pet to suffer from anxiety linked to the weather. Here are a few products for you to consider getting for your pet during hurricane season.
The Furever Brite Safey Collar is perfect in case of a power outage. This product glows all night after only a few hours in light, never needs batteries, and is waterproof and easy to clean.
Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful, or over-excited. They come in a variety of sizes. We even have some for you cat owners out there!
There are also different supplements you can try to help calm your pet such as Proquiet, Anxiety TFLN, Stress Away or Quiet Moments. These products all help support the nervous system and reduce anxiety and tension during times of stress.
In case you have to evacuate, Adaptil travel spray is great to help alleviate anxiety associated with travel.
For some pets, a distraction may help the situation. Check out some of our Kongs and Kong Stuff’n which comes in 2 delicious flavors: Peanut butter and Liver.
Finally, Vetericyn VF Wound & Infection Treatment spray is important to keep on hand for any situation, but especially in situations like this. If your pet has a wound, it’s important to keep it clean to avoid infection. Vetericyn is used to treat topical infections and wounds, hot spots, rain rot, outer ear infections, yeast infections, and rashes. It also speeds up the healing process and kills antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria as well as fungi, viruses, and spores.
