Do you travel with your dogs? Have you ever considered what might happen if you had an accident and were injured — or killed — and not able to communicate your wishes regarding your dogs?

Carrying an “In Case of Emergency” (ICE) information with you and bringing current photos of the dogs and a copy of critical medical information — or at the very least, the veterinarian’s contact information — will help you and your animals in case of an emergency.

Any easy way to store the information in a zip-lock plastic bag which will keep everything dry, and then put it in the glove box or attach it to the crates where your animals aren’t able to reach it. Having the information in a place that emergency responders can find it is good planning.

There is an easy PDF available for creating your own documents that was designed by Nancy Cox Starkey. All you need to do is fill in the blanks and print out the form. What an easy way to protect your pets.
