Pets can also become scared and disoriented during disasters, making them more difficult to manage. Get them out before things get out of hand.
Even though pets get along, try to keep them separately during this time. Seal of openings or inaccessible holes like vents, pet doors etc. Remove unsafe items like tools and chemicals.
- Ensure your bird has a leg band for identification
- In warm weather, spray your bird regularly to keep it moist
- Snakes can be transported in cloth bags or pillow cases only temporarily
- Keep a large bowl in which the entire reptile will fit and or any other temperature control device like a hot water bottle
