Travel tips for pets this holiday season

November 23, 2010

Are you traveling this holiday season? If your pet will be traveling with you, here are some things to consider as you venture, trek and travel:

  • Did you know that your carry-on pet counts as one of your pieces of luggage?
  • Make sure to label your pet’s kennel/carrier with your pet’s name along with your name, phone number and address.
  • If traveling with your pet internationally, check the US Dept. of Agriculture’s website for US and destination country requirements regarding vaccines and other potential requirements.  Remember that you must acquire a health certificate and proof of a rabies vaccine 10 days prior to air travel.
  • Offer your pet some water and food approximately four hours before check-in with your airline.  Don’t overfeed your pet to avoid an upset stomach!
  • Don’t assume all airlines accept pets! Many airlines have age, health and even breed limitations.  Call ahead to confirm.
  • Don’t expect that your pet will automatically have a spot on the plane.  Animals often limit the number of animals on each flight.
  • Talk with your veterinarian prior to traveling for recommendations and advice on making it a more comfortable and safe trip for your pet.

Or, bring your pets to our wonderful resort!
The Animal Hospital of Polaris is a great getaway for your pets!    Reservations are now being taken for the holiday season but space is limited, so call us today at (614)888-4050!  Learn more about our options.
