After the Disaster

Try to return to your pet’s normal routine as quickly as possible.

Pets may wish to stay near you more than usual—allow them to do so.

Let pets sleep as much as they want as they recover from the stress.

Keep a close eye on pets for signs of illness. Birds, rodents and reptiles can be particularly susceptible to respiratory illnesses following a stressful event.

If you notice behavioral changes that do not improve over a few days, contact RC Pets, your veterinarian, or a professional behaviorist for advice.
