Pet Travel

Travel with pets can be adventurous and exciting, or it can be a hassle. If you're planning to take Fido or Fluffy with you, book hotels in advance and make sure you understand their pet policies. Purchase a book filled with pet lodging and contact information, then call ahead to be sure the policies haven't changed. Visit your vet for vaccinations and a travel certificate in case you need to show it to authorities wherever you are traveling.

Be VERY careful in your decision to travel with your pet by air. Both times I moved across the country, I drove with my dog in the car and stopped every two hours so she could relieve herself and stretch her legs. While air travel for people is safer than by car, I believe the opposite is probably true for animals.

Products to Facilitate Pet Travel

During automobile travel, your pets should be in crates in the back seat of your vehicle or strapped in with approved animal seat belts. Never allow your pet to travel in the back of a pickup truck. For small dogs and cats, there are pet carriers and totes so your furbaby can have a birds-eye view of the world below and travel close to your heart.

When your pet has anxiety about traveling, reassure him or her with a calming product such as Happy Traveler. This dietary supplement eases separation and travel anxiety, motion sickness, and tension caused by changing his or her daily routine. It consists of human grade natural ingredients and has no harmful side effects when used as directed.

Your companions need access to water at all times, whether they are at home, on the road, hiking, or on the beach. With the Handi-Drink, you can easily transport clean, sanitary water for your pet without spilling or backwash. Its unique wrap-around water pan is combined with a 17-ounce water bottle that will keep your dog hydrated whenever you are on the go. Simply squeeze some water into the pan and your dog will drink it up.
