Holidays are the perfect time to unwind and relax. For those who have a pet, it also means spending more time with our beloved animal friends.
If you’re thinking of travelling with your pet, we advise you to carefully read these tips in order to get well organized and avoid any surprises.
1. Be sure to check the health status of the animal
Before you travel it’s essential to update all your pet’s vaccines. Your pet must also be protected against external parasites like fleas and ticks. If you go abroad, find out in advance what permits are necessary to enter the country with pets.
2. Means of transport
If you travel by car, train, bus, boat or plane, do your homework on the travel policy that each mode of transport implements, as they are often very different. Normally the most common and comfortable transport is the car, where your pet will have to go into a travel cage or a dedicated space, separate from the driver.
3. Bring their toys
So that your pet will be more comfortable and not feel lost while travelling, take their toys and all their things along with you.
3. Keep your pet calm throughout the trip
The journey can be stressful for an animal: it doesn’t know where it’s being taken and can find it difficult to put up with being quiet and stuck in the same place for a long time. For this reason, it’s important to try to keep your pet calm throughout the whole trip, with good protection, care and attention.
4. Take rest breaks
If the journey is very long, it’s advisable to stop approximatively every one or two hours for your pet to drink, relieve themselves and walk around. Remember never to leave your animal alone in the car, especially in summer.
