If you expect extreme weather, lock your PlexiDor pet door and attach the security plate.
While the PlexiDor panels are designed to open at a gentle touch, the springs can keep them closed at wind speeds up to 30 miles per hour. If you expect any type of extreme weather with winds stronger than this, your pets shouldn’t be unsupervised outside. Securing the door is the best for both your home and your pets.
Include your pets in your emergency plans and never leave them alone behind – they depend on you. The CDC has emergency planning lists for cats and dogs.
