Pet Ownership and Emergency Preparedness

Pet emergency preparedness.

It isn’t pleasant to think about natural or man-made disasters, but the threat of earthquakes, fires, floods, and landslides is ever-present in our beautiful coastal community. Creating a family disaster plan that includes your animal companions can help safeguard your family and your pets against further trauma if, or when, disaster strikes. 

Follow these tips from Surfside Animal Hospital to help your pet-friendly household prepare for emergencies. 


Keeping Your Pet Cool During the Summer

It’s finally summer. Hot sunny days coupled with warm ocean breezes equal perfection for outdoor fun. For your outside pets, however, it may not be ideal. You know they love to go where you go and play where you play. At Surfside Animal Hospital, we encourage you to help them stay cool, hydrated, and safe from outside summertime dangers.
