If you have pets, you probably consider them as family members. You might think to take your pet along with you on your next trip.
Millions of people take their pets with them every year. Some of these adventures are wonderful where pets and people get even more involved.
Others are not that big.
Fortunately, with little preparation and mind, you and your pet can have fun as well as safely together. Should you or not you? Your first decision is whether to take your pet or not. Your first priority is the safety and welfare of your cat or dog.
Here are some aspects to consider:
Does your pet have previous experience in the trip? If so, how do they deal with the stress of the trip?
What is the temperament of the pet? Does your dog or cat feel highly nervous or nervous or more relaxed?
What is the age and health of your pet?
Is your dog needing a medicine? Will you be able to stay on schedule when you travel?
If you are not sure about the level of your pet's health and stress, consult your vet for advice.
Your destination allows pets? (Here are some who do: http://www.pet-friendly-hotels.net/)
What kind of travel do you plan? Travel abroad to taste exotic international cuisine (for example: http://geraldkochan.tumblr.com/post/87291550975/four-countries-four-fabulous-couisines?) Sounds admirable but not for your pet. Plan a trip through your pet's eyes.
Pets and Open Road
Visit a road with a pet can be a joyful experience. It can also be tragic. Pets are lost every year when they escape the car while traveling and escape leaving the owners of their hearts. Most never recover. It is extremely important to take precautions against the loss of your pet and to ensure their safety.
Most agree that it is best for cats to travel with carriers. Cats are usually nerve passengers and keeping them in carriers is safer for them and you. Many people do not realize, however, that dogs should be in boxes or carriers, and for many of the same reasons. A pet in a back seat carrier and a safety belt is much safer in an accident than when traveling around. Pets in carriers do not distract drivers, except perhaps with strong sounds from time to time. And pets in the carriers can not escape when the vehicles stop and the passengers open their doors.
Pet travel requires a lot of stops. They have to walk around, drink water, eliminate and absorb the new sights and smells. Carefully secure your pets with a strap or harness before opening the car door. Offer plenty of water, but a little food until the end of the day to prevent the car's illness.
Animals should never be left alone in a vehicle. Temperatures rise in seconds and the interior of your car becomes a furnace that can cause irreversible damage to organs or death. Passengers have to alternate by using rest facilities, leaving a pet with a pet at all times.
