Advice from Canterbury SPCA - the earthquake specialists
Canterbury SPCA know about earthquakes and animals - here are their top 4 pieces of advice:
- Owners should keep their animals secure and confined until the tremors decline
- Identify pets now while they are still around with microchips or collars
- If they have been away and come back, don’t let them out again
- Don’t provide them with negative reinforcement by over-reacting to their fear. Give them positive encouragement that all is ok and behave as normal as possible around them.
