Pet food and water: Food and water are things which are more prone to contamination during rains. Make sure that your pet’s food and water is kept clean and is prevented from being contaminated. Cold food and water should be avoided as much as possible. Store their food in air-tight containers and clean their serving bowls and pet chews regularly. Feed your pet with foods depending on their health and nutritional needs.
