In Case of Car Accident -- Pets At Home Vehicle Window Cling


This is such a great idea. The relatively unlikely, yet worrisome scenario has crossed many pet owners' minds at some point--what happens if we are incapacitated in an accident? Who will think to look after our pets?

Place this Pets At Home Vehicle Window Cling on the window of your vehicle to alert emergency personnel that you have pets at home in need of care. The static cling material will adhere to any clean glass surface and can be easily removed. And hope the EMS notices it!

Keep Your Pets Safe in a Storm -- Checklist and Tips


After Tropical Storm Fay we posted on Preparing for Natural Disasters. Living in households with pets and children, we bear the scars from Hurricanes Bob, Gloria, Frances, Jeanne, Wilma and recently, the even-worse-in-terms-of-flooding Tropical Storm Fay.

With more storms currently on the way, and winter down the road, no matter where you call home, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of advance preparation and self-reliance. You will be on your own, at least for awhile.

Here is a link to an excellent checklist at FloridaPets.net entitled Hurricane Safety for the Animals.

Super Cool Pet Lodging and Pet-Friendly Travel Sites


With Labor Day Weekend coming up, many pet owners who want to get away are no longer sending their pets to the neighborhood kennels. They are treating them to high-end pet resorts. From MSNBC's High-end pet lodges popular with owners

These days, when vacationers are unable to bring their pets along, booking them into a pet resort guarantees animal will be having as much fun as owner.

With luxurious suites, 24-hour room service, pampering spa services, hiking, swimming and other sports -- not to mention personal feline or canine chefs to attend to finicky eaters -- these resorts are a far cry from the typical boarding kennels (which, not long ago, resembled stark animal shelters).

Chauffeur-driven limos, virtual fish tanks, swimming, hiking, playtime--nothing is too good for our pampered pets.

However, if your pet is the traveling kind, here are two pet-friendly sites:

PetTravel.com is a portal for lots of information about traveling with animals, including immigration requirements, guidelines for pets and timeshares, and airline policies that you can search by carrier.

PetFriendlyTravel.com can link you to restaurants, hotels, spas, bed and breakfasts, and cabins in the United States, Canada and Mexico that will be happy to serve you and your four-legged family members.

Pet Scoop -- How To Protect Your Pets from Thieves


Whether you view the animals you live with as pets, loved ones, children or pack leaders, this is a scary trend. MSNBC reports that "some dognappers are stealing pets for quick profit...It's not just dogs who are stolen, although they're the most common targets. Cats are at risk too." From the MSNBC.com, Pet thefts rise as economy hits dog-gone low, ways to protect against pet theft:

  • Don't leave your dog alone in your yard for long periods, especially if it's visible from the street.
  • If strangers approach you with admiring comments about your dog, don't share information about his cost or where you live.
  • Report a theft to police and animal control as soon as it happens.
  • Keep a current photo of your pet so you can make flyers or posters immediately and post the photo on Web sites.
  • If possible, hold back some kind of descriptive information about your pet so you can sort out crank calls from serious ones.
  • Microchip your dogs and cats, and keep microchip registration information up to date so shelters and veterinarians can contact you if your pet is found. A microchip also serves as proof that an animal belongs to you.
  • A tattoo on the inner thigh is a permanent way of identifying your dog if the tattoo is registered with a tracking organization such as National Dog Registry.
  • Consider GPS for your pet. New GPS collars allow owners to set up a safety zone. If the pet strays beyond it, an alert goes out e-mail and text message. The collars have potential for tracking missing dogs, but they're expensive at $129.99 and up, and they can be removed by someone who finds the dog and decides to keep it.

Not only has the economy hit a new "dog-gone low", Americans have too, if this is the way they deal.

If your pet ever does disappear, whether through theft or running away, missing-pet Web sites such as dogdetective.com and K9 Amber Alert may help.
