Traveling with your pet doesn’t have to be stressful if you take steps to plan ahead.  Be certain to keep the following tips in mind as you head out on your family vacation:

1.  Make sure that whatever accommodations you have made permit pets.  Many hotels welcome small pets but you may have to pay an extra deposit or fee.

2.  If you are traveling by car, be sure to provide adequate conditions for your pet.  Never leave your pet unattended in your vehicle when taking a break from driving, especially in hot climates.  Even a short time in a hot car can be fatal.  Your pet will need plenty of water and a chance to move around and exercise, so plan for frequent stops.

3.  A pet that is free to roam in the passenger compartment of a vehicle is at risk from sudden stops or a car accident.  Pets are also at risk of loss if you open the car door before restraining your pet.  Consider the use of a pet carrier in your vehicle and secure it with a seat belt or cargo straps!

If your plans don’t permit you to take along your furry family member, remember that we are always here to love and care for your pet as you travel! Enjoy the rest of your summer and we hope to see you soon!
