Tips and Advice for Traveling with a Pet

If you travel for a living, you know that a lot of planning and preparing goes into making sure you have a successful assignment. When you throw a pet (or two) into the mix, there's a lot more to think about...but a lot more fun as well! Here are nine quick tips for hitting the road with your pet:

1. Pack their health docs. Chances are you've just filled out and turned in documents for yourself...but don't forget your pet! It's a good idea to pack your pet's medical records, vaccination records, and any other pertinent info just in case you need to see a vet while you're away from home. Also, it's a good idea to have a current picture of your pet with you in case they happen to slip away from you.

2. Take breaks. When you're traveling, if you need a break, chances are your pet does too. Make sure to keep their food intake to a minimum, and give them plenty of chances to stretch their legs and use the restroom.

3. Safety first. It's really cute for your cat or small dog to be sunning themselves on the dashboard, but it's not safe at all. Make sure all pets are properly restrained when traveling so they don't get injured during turns or sudden stops. Also, you don’t want them to be able to dart out of the car when you open the door when you stop.
