Tips for a Lost Pet

lost pet tips

If your pet strays from home, it can be a devastating experience for both you and your pet. You should act immediately because the longer you wait, the further away your pet can travel and the higher probability they could get injured.

- First, make sure you have properly searched your OWN home to confirm your pet is not just hiding somewhere. Make sure to check any garages, basements and sheds on the property, even if you don’t think your pet could have gotten in there. Pets can get into some very strange and small places. Look behind, under and inside all appliances such as washing machines, stoves, refrigerators. For cats, make sure to check in attics, on the roof or roof gutters, and up in trees.
