Most pet owners likes to bring their pets with them when they travel, and most of the time they are also left with no choice but to leave them back home because they don’t know what to prepare when traveling. Here are some tips if you’re planning to travel with your pets.
Veterinary Appointment – get your pet check by your veterinary to make sure he’s fit to travel, or if there’s any medication he needs to take before or during the trip. Don’t force your pet to travel with you if your vet don’t recommend it.
Kennel Crate – use crates that are designed to transport pets safely and comfortable like 4Pets ProLine Dog Crates, they are also crash tested by the world leader in testing and product certification TUV-SUD.
Dog food and dishes – pack their dog food and bring their dog’s eating and drinking dishes, and if possible pack their dog food separately in a container or plastic bags as per meal so you can easily get them when it’s time for their meal. Don’t let your dog overeat as it may caused them to vomit or have diarrhea while on the road.
Treats and Toys – pack their favorite toys and natural Quality Dog Treats to keep them busy and occupied, doing so will lessen any kind of stress if they are distracted.
Extra Collars and Leashes – pack an extra collar and leashes for your pet just in case one breaks.
Poop bags and Towels – bring poop bags and pick up after your dog, no matter where you are and no matter if there’s anyone looking or none.
Dog Tags And Veterinary Contacts – or better yet have them microchipped so any local pound of veterinary can identify you as the owner in case they get lose. Make sure the information on their dog tags and microchipped profile are up to date. Keep your veterinary contact numbers in case you need to call them for emergency situations and it’s also a good idea to know nearby veterinary clinics on the place you’re traveling.
Water – make sure they get access to clean water during the trip to avoid dehydration.
Bathroom time – make several stops, ideally every three or four hours so you and your dog can stretch and pee.
