Firstly you should assess your pet’s traveling capabilities. Very old or very young pets can be affected greatly by the
experience of a long trip. If your pet has any illness or injury make sure to be informed about his or her condition and whether
it will complicate during travel by asking your veterinarian.
You should also talk with your veterinarian about where you will be traveling, how and for how long. Be sure to ascertain about
any ticks, fleas or heartworms that can harm your pet at any of the places that you plan to go. If your pet has any problems
while traveling such as motion sickness ask your vet about treatments or medication he could prescribe.
Ask your vet if your pet has all the necessary up to date vaccinations and obtain a health and rabies certificate. This is
especially important if you will be traveling by plane since airports require that you have the certificate issued no earlier than
10 days before you take off.
Make sure to buy the appropriate crate for your pet’s travels, this includes: sturdiness, plentiful ventilation, a door that
securely locks, an interior free of affliction possibilities and above all plenty of space to move around. You should also get
one that can be grabbed easily from the outside where the animal can’t harm.
Put tags on your pet that have all the current information such as owner’s name, a phone number, an address and proof of
vaccination. As an extra security measure you might want to get your pet micro chipped which will make it very easy to find
him or her in case you become separated.

Before you depart make sure to clip your pet’s nails so that he or will be easier to restrain as well as diminish the
prospect of causing unwanted damage. If your pet has fleas or ticks make sure to apply the proper treatments so that he or she
doesn’t infest their new environments.
For the worst case scenario in which you and your pet become separated you should come with a list of helpful information
regarding him or her as well as a recent photograph. Among the information included you should have the breed, call name, age,
coat type, color, characteristic markings and microchip number.
You should always have plenty of fresh water at your side. Don’t introduce food to your pet that is very different from what
you ordinarily feed him to avoid any complications. If you can’t find your dog’s brand of food you should introduce
him or her to a new type gradually and be attentive to any changes due to diet.
