Timmy's Top Ten Tips for Pet Travel
  • 1. Pet ID Collars: list your final destination info
  • 2. Get Real: be honest about your pet's ability to travel and open to a kennel if health is a concern
  • 3. Trim Nails: avoid damage to surroundings and people
  • 4. Flee Not Flea: give 'em a bathy-poo before the trip to avoid infesting new spaces
  • 5. On A Leash: obey all leash laws and always clean up after your pet
  • 6. Smell of Home: keep your pet's stress at bay with familiar scented items from home
  • 7. On the Road: plan a quick trip to acclimate your pet and consider a seatbelt or crate
  • 8. First Aid: pack a pet first-aid kit including 24-hour numbers for veterinary help
  • 9. Food & Water: always pack fresh water, snacks, and food for your pet
  • 10. Take Your Time: relax and go slow; vacations are supposed to be fun for you and your pet!
