Presentation Transcript

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.

In addition to searching for pet-friendly

lodging and transportation options, pet

owners will want to plan ahead for their

animal’s potential needs.

Whether a person is traveling by train, plane or

automobile, these tips will cover everything

necessary to ensure smooth travels with one’s

animal companion.



One of the first stops before embarking

on an adventure with a pet should

always be the veterinarian’s office.

At this appointment, not only can a

thorough check up and vaccinations be

performed to ensure pets are healthy

enough to travel…

… but veterinarians can also provide a

few safety pointers that are specific to

animal type and breed.



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.

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.

Despite the utmost of care, it is possible for the

unimaginable to happen and a pet get lost.

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 pet’s collar.

Then, add an ID tag to the

carrier and any other pet

accessories as well.



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


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.

This can help to identify any potential

issues before they arise on a longer trip.



If a trip will involve going to another country or state with

a different climate, it is important to plan accordingly.

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.

TAKE ALONG sweater


Traveling to a new locale can cause some animals to sweater

be anxious or even depressed.

A favorite toy or blanket can help to ease their anxiety sweater

and provide a source of entertainment while away.



Those who are traveling by land should plan for occasional sweater

pit stops that will provide an opportunity for their pet to

take a bathroom break or just run off some energy.

Ideally, these breaks should be planned for at least every sweater

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.


With a little preparation, pet owners and

their animal companions will know what to

expect when the big day arrives.


Once the bags are packed and the pet is

secured, it is important to relax and enjoy

the traveling adventure.


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.
