Dr. Marty Becker’s Advice on Preparing for a Natural Disaster

June 1 means the official start of hurricane season for the Atlantic Ocean (the Pacific Hurricane season is already underway.) Warmer weather also means an increased chance of tornadoes, floods, and wildfires. Are you — and your pets — ready in case of a natural disaster and emergency evacuation?

Today we have a special video just for DogTipper from Dr. Marty Becker, best known as “America’s Veterinarian,” addressing the importance of a disaster plan that includes your pets. The past year has been a tragic one in terms of natural disasters, starting with the deadly tornadoes in Joplin, Missouri a year ago and continuing into this March when over 130 tornadoes through nine states left a trail of devastation costing billions of dollars in damage.

In this video, Dr. Marty Becker discusses ways to help pet owners put their emergency kits together and develop a plan to cover their furry family members and provides tips from Petco about emergency preparedness for your pets.
