Summer Travel Plans?

Dear Summer traveler,
Vacations are a lot more fun if you share them with your best friend!  If you plan to take your dog or cat with you, careful planning and safety precautions will make travel more enjoyable for both of you.
Make an appointment with your veterinarian for a check up and make sure all vaccinations are up to date.  When flying, obtain a health certificate from your veterinarian dated within 10 days of departure.  For travel outside the United States, additional planning and health care requirements may be necessary.  Contact the foreign office of the country you are traveling for more information.
Affix a current photograph of your pet to the top of the crate for identification purposes.  Should our pet escape from the carrier, this could be a lifesaver.  You should also carry a photograph of your pet with you.
It is alot safer for everyone if your pet is securely fastened or confined during car trips.  A large dog in your lap or a small one bouncing around the accelerator pedal can be distracting and dangerous – and should you have an accident, your unrestrained pet might be thrown about the cab.  Popular options for safe pet travel include pet seat belts, crates and car barriers.  If you use a seat belt be sure to put your pet in the backseat.  When riding in the front, pets can be injured or killed if you have an accident and an airbag deploys.
When traveling by plane, make sure your pets collar or carrier incude destination information in case your pet escapes.
