Traveling with your pet


This holiday weekend lots of people will be traveling with their pets.  More and more pet-friendly restaurants and hotels are springing up all over the country. The following is a list of some things to think about before hitting the road with your furry companion.
  • Call ahead to be sure you will not be turned away when you arrive at your destination.  Check all regulations such as size of dog, requirements for kennels, etc. before leaving home.   Most national parks allow dogs at the campgrounds, though for the most part dogs are not allowed on hiking trails.
  •  Never ever leave your pet in a parked car. Pets can overheat much faster than people.  Even a few minutes in a hot vehicle can be fatal.
  • Always keep a collar with current tags on your pet.  Create a new id tag for your dog with a local number, your cell phone number or address of your destination.
  • Be sure to bring all your dogs’ paper work.  Vet records could be important if you dog were to become sick or injured. It is especially important to remember the rabies certificate.
  • Take frequent potty breaks. Having to ‘hold it’ too long can cause health problems like urinary tract infections.
  • Try to keep beds, blankets, bowls and toys the same as they are at home.  Bring along at least one of your dogs favorite toys.  Also, be sure to bring at least one leash.  Keeping food consistent will help reduce the risk of an upset tummy.
  • Take along a first aid kit for you and your pet.  Include the essentials like bandages, wound cleanser, tweezers and a soft muzzle.  Does your dog take medication?  Don't forget to bring it.  Take along some Rescue Remedy, a flower essence that will help minimize stress in new situations.

Wishing you all safe travels this holiday weekend!
