Travelling with Pets. How to stay safe.
With the upcoming holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, many pets are traveling with their parents to see out of town family. It’s very important that pet parents are aware of the importance of pet travel safety. I’ve compiled some travel safety tips for a bon-voyage for you and your pets!
Make sure your pet’s ID tag is up to date and easily readable. ID tags should include at least one contact phone number where you can be reachable in case your pet gets lost. Micro chipping your pets adds an extra layer of protection.
Keep your pets safe and secure while on a road trip in a pet carrier or crate. Harnesses that buckle into your cars seat belt locks can also keep your pet safe.
It’s best to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Don’t forget to pack your pet’s food, travel bowls, pet first aid kit, leash, collar, any pet medication and waste bag. You can also make your pet more comfortable by packing their favourite toys, blanket or pillow.
Rest Area - Next Exit
Don’t forget to make frequent rest stops for your pets. A quick little walk and pee real will help break up long road trips.
NO HOT CARS
Please oh please - DO NOT EVER leave your pets in a hot car. Not even for a quick stop! Cars heat up very quickly and it can be deadly for your beloved pets.
These are some of the items we pack for our road trips!
