Road trips can be fun but when you’re doing them with pets along for the ride, it can be that much more difficult. Whether you have a cat or a dog along for the ride, here are some tips on travelling with pets.
Make sure before you load them up that they have proper identification. Even if they’re microchipped, external identification will help you, too.
Plan Pit Stops
Plan stops every two to three hours to give your pet a chance to drink some water and go to the bathroom.
Put Cats in a Carrier
While your dog just loves being around you, your cat loves being at home. So being loose in a vehicle might freak them out and they might even try to climb under your pedals. Keep them in a carrier.
Before the big trip, take your dog or cat on test drives around the neighborhood. That way, they get used to the feeling of a car.
Pack the Essentials
Pack everything you’ll need, like food, water, a litter box, plastic bags, bedding, toys, and any first aid things they might need.
