TIPS WHEN TRAVELING WITH PETS
3
  • Traveling with a pet is a rewarding experience,
    yet it is important to keep in mind that a little
    preparation can go a long way toward keeping
    animals comfortable on the road.

4
  • In addition to searching for pet-friendly lodging
    and transportation options, pet owners will want
    to plan ahead for their animals potential needs.

5
  • Whether a person is traveling by train, plane or
    automobile, these tips will cover everything
    necessary to ensure smooth travels with ones
    animal companion.

6
CONSULT WITH THE VETERINARIAN
7
  • One of the first stops before embarking on an
    adventure with a pet should always be the
    veterinarians office.

8
  • At this appointment, not only can a thorough
    check up and vaccinations be performed to ensure
    pets are healthy enough to travel

9
  • but veterinarians can also provide a few safety
    pointers that are specific to animal type and
    breed.

10
CHOOSE AN APPROPRIATE CARRIER
11
Dogs can sometimes travel in a car without a
carrier, but they should still be provided with a
pet barrier or seat belt designed for their size
to keep them secure.
12
Cats will likely need a carrier in the car, as
will smaller pets. Those who will be flying
should check with the airline for specific
carrier guidelines.
13
DOUBLE UP ON IDS
14
Despite the utmost of care, it is possible for
the unimaginable to happen and a pet get lost.
15
For peace of mind, make sure to place an
additional updated identification tag with the
address and phone number of hotels and other
forms of lodging on the pets collar.
16
Then, add an ID tag to the carrier and any other
pet accessories as well.
17
START WITH A TRIAL RUN
18
Some animals take to travel as if it is a normal
part of their lives. However, others may display
behavior that is quite different from their usual
selves.
19
If possible, pet owners should take a few shorter
trips that can help acclimate their pet to the
form of transportation that will be used as well
as their carrier.
20
This can help to identify any potential issues
before they arise on a longer trip.
21
PLAN FOR CLIMATE CHANGES
22
If a trip will involve going to another country
or state with a different climate, it is
important to plan accordingly.
23
For example, smaller, short-haired pets may
require a sweater in a colder climate, and
thick-haired dogs may need to be trimmed at the
groomer's before heading to a warm or tropical
locale.
24
TAKE ALONG A COMFORT ITEM
25
Traveling to a new locale can cause some animals
to be anxious or even depressed.
26
A favorite toy or blanket can help to ease their
anxiety and provide a source of entertainment
while away.
27
MAKE FREQUENT PIT STOPS
28
Those who are traveling by land should plan for
occasional pit stops that will provide an
opportunity for their pet to take a bathroom
break or just run off some energy.
29
Ideally, these breaks should be planned for at
least every two to three hours, and animals
should never be left alone in cars so even a
restaurant can provide a chance to let a pet
explore.
30
With a little preparation, pet owners and their
animal companions will know what to expect when
the big day arrives.
31
Once the bags are packed and the pet is secured,
it is important to relax and enjoy the traveling
adventure.
32
Remember that pets look to their owners to assess
how to react to a new situation, and having
confidence will ensure that everyone enjoys the
trip.
