Assume an earthquake for pets

Preparedness for disasters for dogs

Dogs vary greatly depending on whether they are kept indoors or outdoors, but fallen objects and fires are the most dangerous things in the event of an earthquake. A falling object can obtain a certain degree of safety if the cage (kennel) is sturdy. As dog baits basically save preservation, if you prepare a little bait a little more, you can deal with evacuation life to some extent. However, it will be tough for water to stop, so it’s safe to keep it. In the case of indoor dogs without cages, let’s move them to the desk etc. promptly after the first earthquake, since danger is also involved in aftershocks after the earthquake. The fire and danger of the earthquake are the same for both humans and dogs. It is important to prepare for emergencies by not placing flammable materials such as oil beside gas stoves.

Preparedness for disaster for cats

Cats are basically considered to have no cage, so you need to be careful about falling objects. It is also important to keep it under the desk for aftershocks as well. Let’s keep in mind that if bait contains live things, it will not last as long as she is in evacuation. If you can, you can rest assured that you can keep the type of food that will last as long as possible. Cats are relatively resistant to shocks, and it is often uncomfortable to the extent that they fall from a little high place. On the other hand, we also need to be aware that it is weak against damage of the body such as pieces of tableware which will break the body. Some cats get out of the house without knowing it, so in the event of a disaster you need to know where the cat is first. Often I often come home without doing things.

Preparedness for disasters for rabbits

Many rabbits are kept in cages and carries, but rabbit cages are less durable than dog’s. Let’s assume that it will break first if heavy items fall. Therefore, let’s not put dangerous things when falling near the rabbit cage. Compared to dogs and cats, it is sometimes hard to respond suddenly to food changes. Therefore, we recommend that you keep a stock of food you eat normally. There is a high possibility that rabbits are required for exclusive use as regards water. It is safe to be able to bring dishes to evacuation centers if possible. Since rabbits are weak against changes in the environment over dogs and cats, that kind of consideration is required so as not to change the environment as much as possible.

Preparedness for disasters for birds

The cage is vulnerable to external stimuli, and it is highly likely that it will easily break if heavy items fall. Therefore, we recommend that you do not place heavy objects near the bird cages. The place where birds differ from other animals is that they may escape in the shock of the earthquake. If birds fly out, the risk of being underlayed by buildings will fall, but the possibility of being alright is never low. Also, there is no guarantee that birds will come back after they have escaped. If you absolutely do not want to fly out, we recommend that you prepare a sturdy bird cage to some extent. As bird foods may not be available in the event of a disaster, it is important as a precaution to prepare lots of stocks just in case.

Cage combined with disaster countermeasures

For animals kept in cages, the durability of the cage is directly linked to safety. The durability of the cage is basically proportional to the size and price. Although a heavy-duty cage is heavy, it may be a bit inconvenient in general, but it is very important to be robust if you take countermeasures against disasters. Since it is difficult to take the cage to the evacuation center, it is also effective to have a carry etc. However, be careful also that Carry is not easy to carry unless it is a fairly compact animal. In case of a disaster, falling objects may hit the cage. When heavy things fall, big damage will be caused to the animals in the cage. In light of that, we recommend that you place heavy objects around the cage.
