  • Preparing Your Pets for Shelter

    We've talked about it before, and we'll talk about it again... you need to prepare ahead of time for pets in emergency situations.

    When you prepare for disasters, be sure to make arrangements for your pets too! In the event that you have to evacuate to a public shelter, keep in mind that for health reasons, some facilities cannot accept pets, so it’s important to prepare them for an alternative shelter. However, service animals are allowed in general population shelters.

    The Ready Campaign offers the following tips when seeking a pet shelter:
    • Call your local emergency management office, animal shelter, or animal control office to get advice and information; and
    • If you’re unable to return to your home right way, you may need to board your pet. Find out the location of boarding facilities and research some outside of your area in case local facilities are closed.
    Once you’ve found an alternative shelter, follow these tips to keep your pet safe while they are away from you:
    • Make sure microchips and identification tags are up-to-date and securely fastened to your pet’s collar. If possible, attach the address and phone number of your evacuation site;
    • Take a current photo with your pet for identification purposes; and
    • Pack a “pet survival kit

  • “Ready, Pet, Go!” Preparedness Calendar

    ready-petWe recently talked about PetParedness at the White House... now the American Public Health Association (APHA) recently released an exciting new resource to help prepare your family, school, or office for emergencies. Their 2016 “Ready, Pet, Go!” Get Ready calendar features images of animals sharing important safety tips you can follow throughout the year, including:

    • If you live in an area at risk for hurricanes, know your community’s hurricane warning system. Find your evacuation routes and have supplies packed;
    • If you have to go outside during a winter storm, bundle up. Wear mittens and a hat to stay warm. Limit your time outdoors; and
    • Know where to take shelter during a disaster, whether you’re at home, work, school, or in transit.

    Images used in the calendar feature winners from APHA’s recent photo contest held during National Preparedness Month. This calendar can be a great addition to your bulletin board, office space, or refrigerator. Download and print your copy today!

  • Keeping Your Pets Safe

    You may know that the FDA works to keep foods and drugs safe for you and your family, but you may not realize the agency does much the same for your pets...

    Drug Safety

    In Fiscal Year 2013, FDA received 86,444 reports of adverse drug events from manufacturers, veterinarians, and consumers. Baker explains that while manufacturers are required by law to report adverse drug events, veterinarians and consumers are encouraged to report on a voluntary basis. Instructions for pet owners on reporting can be found at fda.gov.

    CVM’s pharmacovigilance efforts can lead to

    • revisions in product labels,
    • “Dear Doctor” letters to veterinarians warning of potential safety issues,
    • client information sheets informing pet owners of important drug information, and
    • articles in veterinary journals.

    In addition, to get the word out about its pharmacovigilance efforts, FDA reaches out to veterinarians at professional meetings, continuing education courses and conferences. More recently, FDA has begun reaching out to technicians in veterinary practices, too, to encourage them to report issues of concern with veterinary drugs. “We’re suggesting that more vet techs assume the responsibility for adverse event reporting for vets who may be too tied up to do so in the course of a busy day,” Baker says.

    FDA engages in pharmacovigilance; that is, it monitors reports of adverse drug events (unexpected and sometimes serious side effects) from manufacturers, veterinarians and animal owners. Monitoring this information can result in changes in product labeling to better communicate drug safety information. In addition, the agency maintains a website through which consumers can report safety problems related to pet foods.

    “People value their pets and may not realize that FDA is constantly on the lookout for signs that there is a medication or food on the market that could result in adverse health events,” says John Baker, a veterinarian and director of the Division of Veterinary Product Safety (DVPS) within the agency’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM).
