Pet travel in the United States is on the increase, according to the Travel Industry Association of America. 29.1 million U.S. adults say that they have traveled with a pet on a trip of 50 miles or more in the past three years, and pet travel increases in the summer months when more families travel. Here are some tips to get you prepared:
Things to bring with you:
Benadryl : very effective in combating allergic attacks and insect stings.
A Flashlight : for nighttime walks.
Your Veterinarians phone number : in case you need medical advise while you are out of town.
Things to do before you leave:
Ask your Veterinarian about medications and treatments if your pet suffers from motion sickness.
Verify all vaccinations are current and keep those records (which are required by the airlines) with you.
