Hot Weather Is Here

The hot weather has already made a stand through out the country and you know it is hot when Arizonians complain of the heat. I probably should have put together this episode sooner, but didn’t think it was in this much of a need until I had heard of people coming down with heat exhaustion lately. So this week I talk about preparing your food, your vehicle, pets and livestock, gardens and crops, and most importantly you and your family for the hot temperatures. I mention in the podcast that if you have a homemade recipe for electrolytes that you would like to share, please email it to us and we will give you credit in next weeks episode if you would like it.

Prep For Your Pets

Happy 100th episode of our podcast. Thank you to all of you that made this possible by listening, sharing, and contributing to the success of this show. It may have been rough at times and we have changed show format and content quite a few times. We have had months of uncertainty on the future of it, but we have weathered the storm and are continuing to bring you content. I would love to especially thank those that allow us to post episodes on their various platforms of social media, please check them out at our supporters page. I would also like to thank those that over the years came on the show for various interviews and comments.

Ok so today I talk about pet prep since it has been a while. I talk about the roles that your two or four legged friends may play in a survival situation. I focus mostly on dogs and cats though even though there are many other pets out there that may be beneficial in their own ways. I talk food and water storage. First aid for your four-legged companions and the importance of having a good first aid reference book like The First Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats. After that I talk of some other items you really should keep as well. I hope you all enjoy the episode.

Know Your Way Home

With all the commotions going on during this past weekend, and no I am not trying to make light of the horrible violence that took place in Virginia, it was another reminder to know your escape plan. Today I talk about the necessity of having multiple routes to home or your bug out location. I cover methods of acquiring area maps to create your alternative routes and the importance of teaching your family how to read and use those route maps as well. Please let us know in the comments if you have any input on the subject.

I would also like to recommend the book I mentioned I ordered last week for your furry friends first aid. The book is called The First Aid Companion For Dogs & Cats, by Prevention Pets. It is an awesome source of information.

Prep For Your Furry Friends

I have covered this a while back, but today I was thinking we should talk prepping for your furry family. I talk about the benefits of pet cats and how you may not need to worry as much about food storage when it comes to feline friends. Dogs are a different story and most preppers already know the perks dogs to protection, companionship, and early warning; they require more prep for survival. I talk about food and water storage for the fur family. I get a little more in depth on the need for pet first aid knowledge and supplies. Don’t forget to check out Pet MD while the grid is still up and research animal first aid for free.

You May Be Prepared, But What About Your Pets

You may have a years worth of food and water stored for you and the family, but what about for your dog or cat? I know some of you may be asking yourself “why have pets in a SHTF”? Personally I wonder why you wouldn’t? Sure they are another mouth to feed and more waste to dispose of, but you forget about the benefits. Dogs are one of the best security guards you could have. Dogs have much better hearing and sense of smell than us that they can sense other people and animals in the area long before we will. The barking and growling of your protective pet may also deter people from trying to take your preps. Cats may not deter people from raiding your food, but they can keep mice and rats from getting into your stuff. One other benefit that everyone overlooks, comfort and normalcy in a very stressful situation. When it hits the fan, having the comfort of your furry companion may bring you or especially your kids a normal relaxation and peace of mind at times. IMG_5373.JPG
Prepping for your pets is no different than prepping for you, only items oriented for your pet. Your pet requires food, water, and medicine like anyone else only modified for them. Dogs generally require more food and water than cats, not just because of size difference. Dogs require a high protein diet to keep up on their energy for as active as they are. Unfortunately it is the high protein or crude proteins in dry dog food that make it hard to store for long term. There are a few specialty long term storage dog and cat foods out there, but they are quite a bit of money such as a 30lb tub of 15 year storage food by Legacy Food Storage.

The problem with the protein and dry food is that it is only dried about enough to avoid mold, but if you try to vacuum seal it, it will go rancid in the package. Not sealing the dry food and just leaving it in the factory package on the shelf causes it to dry and harden over time till it’s hard as rock. Optimally, canned food is the cheapest long term storage option. Now don’t go out and buy a bunch of canned dog or cat food unless your pet already eats it, switching them to it suddenly without it being used to it can cause diarrhea which will dehydrate your pet and possibly give them an agonizing death. Also relying on your pet to live off the land is a no go as well. It is quite possible and more than likely that most areas will be over hunted over time and letting your pets hunt for their own food will just cause it sooner. Leaving your animal to hunt for it’s own food may bring out their “primal” instincts and become dangerous to you and your family just like in the survival fiction story, One Second After, by William R. Forstchen. I have also heard from people that they just planned on sharing their own food with their animals. Yes, your pets would love you to share, but our food is not going to have the same nutrients at the same levels that they need causing them to essentially slowly starve. Storing specific food for your furry friends are the easiest way to continue enjoying their companionship in a disaster.

Remember that you four legged friend needs water. On the plus side, water will be easier to take care of thank food for pet preps. I would still plan on a gallon of water a day, but since you will not be bathing or cleaning your pet as much as us people require for a healthy existence, you probably won’t go through any where close to a gallon for most pets. You can never have too much water stored and if you count on a gallon a day for your dog and it only drinks a quarter or half gallon that day, you have that excess to use for someone else.

Pet health and hygiene can be just as crucial as your own. Keeping your cat or dog’s fur trimmed and brushed will help control fleas and ticks from coming in the house with them and off you and your family. Store away a brush or two for them along with manual hair clippers and nail trimmers specifically for your pets. It is little things like flea bites or your pets long nails scratching you, that could lead to family members dying from infection in a SHTF world. A natural method to keep your pets free of pests is bathing them in a high concentrate mint tea, also gives them a better smell than wet dog. Stock up on any over the counter pet meds you can as well, but also look at some of the human medicine that can be used with you pet as well such as peptobismo. I suggest buying or putting together a first aid kit for them along with a first aid or veterinary manual too.

I hope I have helped you and your pet’s preparedness. My furry companions are just as important to me as any other member of the family, I hope this has been a wake up to make sure that your four legged family members are not over looked. If you have any other suggestions, please leave a comment. Thank you.
