By: admin in UncategorizedMany pet owners would never consider leaving their pet behind when going on a trip or on vacation. However, before taking a dog or cat on a trip, there are important steps to follow in order to prepare your pet for travel.
Before a trip, make sure that your pet is in good health. Have a veterinarian examine your pet, and make sure that all of its vaccinations are up to date. Make sure that you have documentation that your pet was vaccinated against rabies. If your pet is very anxious while traveling, your veterinarian may give you a tranquilizer for your pet to take on the day of the trip.
The next step is to pack everything that your pet will need while away from home. Take along enough of your pet's food, and take some water along as well. If your pet takes medications, be sure to pack enough to last for the duration of your trip. Also, place an identification tag on your pet's collar so that it can be returned to you if it becomes lost while you are away.
