Pet Travel Tips for the Car

Here are some tips to keep your pet safe on your next road trip

Start healthy – Make sure your pet is not sick before traveling.  A checkup at the vet can prevent any discomfort on the road.

Plan for restraint – Use a travel crate, pet seat belt, car seat, or other form of barrier to keep your pet safe.  Make sure you familiarize them with the restraint before traveling so that they are comfortable.

Pack enough essentials – Especially food.  Their particular brand of food might not be available or sold at your destination.  Don’t forget water bowls, bedding, leashes, and their favorite toys.

Frequent stops – Don’t go too long between giving your pet exercise and bathroom breaks.  This is also a good time to make sure they stay hydrated.
