Naturally, many are under stress due to the security situation - and so are quite a few animals • To get through this tense period, we have collected some tips that will help you help your best friends



The security situation prevailing throughout Israel in recent days puts many in stressful situations, a completely natural situation - but humans are not the only ones experiencing this difficult situation.

We have collected a number of tips from the Association of Pet Veterinarians in Israel for pet owners, with the aim of making it easier for you - and especially for them - during this stressful time.

1) Prepare the protected space in a comfortable way, and make sure that there is enough food and water for the animals as well, especially when there is a fear of an ongoing event.

2) Equip yourself with means for cleaning and removing secretions, such as bags, wipes, etc.

3) If you have carrier cages, put them in the MMD: a situation of stress can bring even the calmest pet to stress reactions, and sometimes a cage can allow it to feel protected and safe and will also assist in a quick transfer to a protected space.

A prolonged stay in the protected space with a nervous dog or cat can lead to injury to him and those around him, so putting him in a cage will protect him and us from unnecessary injuries.

4) Medicines and first aid: If your pet tends to suffer from anxiety, it is recommended to consult a veterinarian.

If the animal is treated with regular medication, make sure that its medication is available in sufficient quantity.

It is recommended to keep a first aid kit in or near the protected space.

5) Help us help your pets: write down identifying information on the carrier cages and the collar - the owner's name, your phone number, the name of his/her veterinarian and whether he/she is chronically medicated.

6) If you were instructed by the Home Command and/or had to evacuate, take your pets with you.

If there is no such possibility, consult the treating doctors or associations about receiving temporary solutions.

7) If possible, practice with family members and pets the transition to the protected space.

Try to do this calmly and instill confidence in the pets as well.
