Traveling With Your Pet
When traveling with your pet, there are a few things that
you should make sure of.
Make sure your pet has a secure collar and ID tag on it.
Make a temporary one out of cardboard putting your destination
address and phone number on there with a contact name if possible.
Cover the temporary tag with scotch tape for strength and watertightness.
Punch a hole in it with a hole punch and put it on your dog's collar.
If your pet is on medication and you're going away from home
for any length of time, make sure that you have a sufficient supply of
medication, special foods, topical ointments, etc. There is nothing worse
than finding you need a refill at an inopportune time.
Make sure you rabies vaccine is current.
Treat your dog for fleas if you have any. Remember curtosey
to others when visiting family or staying in motels.
If you know where you are going, try and find the nearest
vet in case of an emergency.
Pack a supply of food, water your dog is used to drinking,
and some favorite toys along with a special bed if they have one.
Have a place in the car where your pet can be comfortable
for your journey. Do not let your pet ride on your lap while you
are driving. It isn't safe for you, your pet or other drivers.
Have a good time.
