The lifting of pandemic restrictions in many areas has meant that there are a lot of people who are ready to take a road trip. We at Natural Holistic Health Care in North Miami Beach, FL, know some important things about how to transport pets. If you are thinking of going on a trip with your pet, there are a few things you want to make sure you take care of before you go.
Tips and Tricks from Our Holistic Vet
- Get up to date on vaccinations and other procedures: If necessary, make an appointment with our veterinarian before the trip to make sure that your pet is ready to travel. Vaccinations must be up to date in order to stay at most hotels, travel on a plane, or to be around other animals.
- Know where the local animal hospital is located: When traveling, it's always a good idea to know where to go in the event of an emergency. If you're going to just one destination, look up where the closest animal hospital is located. If you're traveling to several different places, make sure you know how to find the closest vet office on your phone.
- Make your car safe for pet travel: Depending on your pet and your type of vehicle, this may mean getting a carrier or purchasing a harness system. Also be sure to plan your road trip to give your pet adequate breaks.
- Pack food and water: Odds are these things will be available wherever you're traveling, but it's a good idea to bring at least a day's supply in the event of an emergency or a shortage of these supplies. Also be sure to pack sufficient supplies of medications and first aid.
