Going on vacations can now include family members of the four-legged variety.
If you are looking to bring your feline friend or canine companion with you on the road, here are a few tips to make your trip as smooth as possible.
Check with the individual airline before bringing your pets to the airport. While most of their policies are the same, each airline has regulations regarding pets on the plane.
Sites like BringFido and PetsWelcome will help vacationers find animal friendly lodging. Many hotels do allow pets for an additional cleaning fee. Make sure to follow the hotel's policies about pets in public areas and where animals can relieve themselves.
As much as they love adventure, pets do appreciate the comforts of home. Bring a familiar blanket or toy, and don't change their regular food while away.
During a road trip, keep your pet in a crate or car seat designed for pets. It leads to less distractions for the driver and keeps curious animals safe.
Consult a veterinarian before traveling, especially if your pet has never been away from home or if there are any existing health conditions.
Spot and Fluffy need a vacation too! All that lounging around getting belly rubs can be exhausting!
