While prepping, most of us make sure we have enough supplies for our family, including furry friends. That supply of pet meds and animal food is important to the well being of the whole family. Dog and cats will bring in fleas and ticks, among other parasites if left untreated. So, what about the relationship between a preppers and veterinarians?
Some animal parasites can be transferred to people, a lesson very well learned from watching Animal Planet’s “Monster Inside Me”. Perhaps someone to have on your prepper team is the local veterinarian. Even the American Veterinary Medical Association agrees having a veterinarian during an apocalypse is a good idea. While veterinarians are best trained for the zombie apocalypse, they can transfer those skills over to any other doomsday event.
From their website:
Now, under normal circumstances, of course, we would never recommend that a veterinarian treat a human, but in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, well … physicians might be hard to come by, governing boards and malpractice laws are out the window, and if one of your party is bleeding to death, a veterinarian just might give that person the best chance of survival.
