Road Trips with Your Pet
Road trips with your pet can be a fun and rewarding experience. These trips also require planning and preparation to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey for you and your furry companion. At TLC for Pets in Reisterstown, MD, we understand how important it is to take your pet on trips. Our veterinarians can help you get your pet ready for travel.
Meet with Our Vets
Before you travel, bring your pet in to get a clean bill of health, so you don't encounter any surprises relating to your pet's health. Our vets may also have specific advice, depending on where you are going.
Especially if you are traveling a long distance, you need to find a route that will provide places for your pet to stretch its legs. Make sure you understand the rules and whether you need to use a leash.
Bring Everything You Need
You want your pet to get essentials like food or water on the road immediately. Bring all the food you will need for the trip and any other daily requirements your pet needs. Bring your pet's favorite brush to soothe any discomfort during the ride.
Keep Your Dog from Getting Bored
While you are driving, pay attention to your pet. Make sure you stop enough that your pet feels physically comfortable. Your pet may get stiff if you spend too long sitting in a car.
