Preparing for Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is predicted to affect a large portion of the Eastern US in the coming days. We will be participating in daily update calls with our national disaster planning partners – NARSC, NASAAEP and government officials – and will keep you posted as we learn more. The AVMA’s Veterinary Medical Assistance Teams (VMAT), supported by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF),  are ready to deploy if needed to assist with medical care for animals affected by the storm.

The AVMA has hurricane preparedness and response resources on its website as well as preparedness materials for veterinarians, emergency planners, and the public.
