Emergency Kit For Pets
Something a lot of people overlook during setting up their survival kits is their pets. I know I have several and in the event, I have to resort to breaking into our prep kit, I will be ready before I need to be ready. My pets are part of the family and they have been included in my plan. One should prepare a separate emergency kit for pets. It is one more simple step to putting together your emergency survival kit for disaster preparedness.
The most common thought on this is they can eat what I have stored for us. I don’t mind to share with them. This may be alright for a short period of time but they have different requirements for nutrition. For this article, I am going to refer to dogs in general.

A well-trained dog can be one of the best things you can have if presented with a disaster. Dogs have played a role in every major event in history in some way or another. It may not be what was talked about in the history books but they were there, I promise. Dogs have played in essential roles in all walks of life.
If you consider the versatility of a dog’s abilities and their natural instincts to hunt and survive, one could easily recognize why a dog would be beneficial to have in a survival situation. From using their heightened senses to just having that companionship in a time of need a dog could be part of your survival kit.
Prep For The Dog
Once you have read my free guide and have your storage area set up. Now you are ready to prep for the dog. You may not need as big of a container, but I like them all the same for stacking and appearance. It is simple to prep for the dog. You already have water storage. Just add a bit in your calculation for the dog. With the extra container have an assortment of food. This will have to be on your list to rotate as well.
You will want to have whatever food you normally buy for them. A two week supply should be good. You should look into a canned variety. These will typically last longer in storage and provide more nutrition in smaller quantities. This will let you start by feeding them normally in the beginning, then gradually cut back to ration and start mixing in the other product a little at a time for the transition.
You will also have to pack the rest of the essentials. If you have canned goods, make sure you have a can opener! It may be good to consider, treats, grooming tools, and even some toys. You should have some extra room left for anything you might have just wanted to add for yourself too.
Having this ready will not only help your dog survive, but it also allows you to have your companion to help you survive. Even the smallest bread can be helpful. They can sniff things out, burrow, chase out the game if you have to resort to hunting. They can give you a warning in the event of danger from strangers, weather, and things they would hear or sense before humans do.
If you have a pet and you are prepping, don’t forget to prep for the pet! This is good for them and you. Check out the links on this page to help you understand and get what you need to put together an emergency survival kit for your pets.
