Tips for Traveling with Your Pet

 

On a typical warm sunny day, you may find yourself driving your car with the windows down while your dog is peering out the window – wind blowing in his face.  This may appear to be harmless however, it is not safe practice.

While we all love to see the shiny nose of a dog sticking out of a car window, the reality is that your pet's eyes could be injured by debris and other dirt in the air. Moreover, a passing squirrel or another dog or cat could prompt your pet to jump out of the window – a serious and often fatal mistake.

Summertime means vacation and road trips with friends and family. Taking your pet along for the ride could make vacation memories all the more special. Here are some tips on traveling with your pet that will help get your vacation off to a great start.
