Treating Dog and Cat Eye Infections with Terramycin

Dogs are more than twice as likely to make it home if they are chipped. And in cats, it’s even more dramatic - microchipped cats are 20x more likely to be reunited with their owners. Pet parents need to make sure that their pet’s chip is registered with the correct address and contact information. Double-down by ensuring that the pet is also wearing their collar with tags and that the tags have at least two phone numbers on them. If the pet is separated during a disaster, these steps could be the key to reuniting.
A pets emergency kit should include:
The Fuzzy app has a lot of this information, like medical records, pet photos and stats, and vaccine certificates, but it’s still important to keep a printed version in case devices run out of battery.
Pet parents should coordinate with a neighbor to check in on their pets in case they can’t make it home. And keep a set of spare keys in a lockbox. Meeting points, evacuation routes, and potential pet-friendly lodging should be identified on their route. It's handy to periodically update the list of pet-friendly hotels in the area. Lastly, pet parents should have an indicator in their home like a window sticker, that lets emergency responders know there are pets inside. In an emergency situation, if they need to evacuate the home with pets, "evacuated" should be written on the sticker so emergency responders don't spend time and resources looking for the pets. Try by any means not to leave pets behind. If conditions are not safe for humans, they're not safe for pets.
