Hello world! Stanley has very graciously given me the reins of his blog for a few weeks to chat about taking trips with your pets in the summer! This first part is about PRE-TRIP PLANNING. For the purposes of this series, I’m going to assume pet = dog, but if you have a road tripping cat out there send a girl some pictures, because AWESOME! Taking a trip with your dog can be both amazing, and daunting. Making sure in advance that your have his/her well being taken care off can be a huge weight off your shoulders (not to mentioned being safer for everybody in case of emergency).
Are you going somewhere hot? If the ground is too hot for your feet, it’s too hot for theirs! Consider protective booties to keep their feet away from hot pavement.
A few things to consider:
A basic first aid kit should include at least some bandaging material and an antihistamine.
This may sound like a lot of information, but the best way to ensure that you won’t need to worry about anything is to be prepared for anything. Feel free to give us a call or ask your local vet for more information or advice on traveling with your pet in the summer. And get ready to have a blast!
See everyone next week for the second installment: ON THE ROAD!
