Simple Travel Tips Can Help Keep Pets Safe
Date:11/24/2010

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 24 (HealthDay News) -- As Americans get ready to travel to holiday gatherings with family and friends this week, those who will be taking their pets with them are reminded that there are some things you need to remember to protect their health and safety.

Don't forget to pack a copy of all vaccination records so that you can quickly access information in case of an emergency. You'll also need those records if you board your pet while going on an excursion where animals are not allowed, according to Fido Friendly magazine.

When traveling in the car, dogs should wear a safety harness and be placed in the back seat in order to avoid front seat airbag deployment in the event of an accident. Remember to bring your dog's collar and leash and use them when stopping for a roadside washroom break.

Among the other tips offered by the magazine:

  • Your pet should be wearing up-to-date tags that include a contact phone number.
  • Pack a first-aid kit for your pet that includes: tweezers to remove ticks, eye wash to flush wounds, antiseptic moist wipes, gauze, adhesive tape, and scissors.
  • Bring water and your pet's regular food in order to avoid stomach upset.
  • Don't forget your pet's crate or favorite bed or blanket. It's also a good idea to bring some favorite toys.
  • Before you leave home, call your hotel(s) to confirm your reservation and that they know you are traveling with your pet.
