Disaster Preparedness & Emergency Care for Horses
Have you thought about or planned on what to do with your horse during a natural or man‐made disaster?
We are all guilty of not being prepared to meet our pets’ needs during a disaster. Horses rely on humans for food and water on a daily basis and shelter to protect them from the elements. Horses aren’t the free running breed they use to be; we confine them in smaller pastures, corrals and paddocks more so now than in days past. If a fire or flash flood were to occur, fencing is a horse’s biggest dilemma. To a horse flight is the only way to save its life. This is one of the reasons we need to be prepared. EVAC CHECK LIST
