Hey Pet Parents!

With the first named hurricane of 2024 on the watch list, we want you and your fur babies to be ready. Here’s a quick guide from Delhomme Animal Clinic on what to pack and how to prepare so you can stay safe and stress-free.

What to Pack for Your Pets


Small Pets: A cozy, soft-sided carrier for cats and small dogs.

Large Dogs: A sturdy portable kennel. Make sure it’s safe and comfy.

Label Everything: Put your pet’s name and your contact info on the carrier.

Food & Water

Pet Food: Pack enough for 2-4 weeks in a resealable container.

Water: Bring bottled water to last the same amount of time.


Medications: At least a 2-4 week supply of your pet’s meds.

Preventatives: Don’t forget flea and heartworm meds.

ID & Vaccinations

Collars & Tags: Every pet needs a collar with an ID tag that has their name and your phone number.

Microchips: They’re lifesavers if your pet gets lost.

Vaccination Records: Have these on hand, just in case.

Sanitation Supplies

For Cats: Bring a litter box, litter, and trash bags.

Cleaning Supplies: Towels, newspapers for crate lining, baby wipes, and disinfecting wipes.

Other Must-Haves

Leashes, Bowls: Pack leashes, food, and water bowls.

Extra Labels: Have spare ID tags and contact info labels.

Pet First Aid Kit: For those just-in-case moments.

Exotic Pets: Don’t forget their entire habitat, heat lamps, and extension cords.


Keep everything in a large, sealed container to stay organized and dry.
