Pre-Trip: Get Your Pet Road Trip Ready
Before embarking on a road trip with your pet, we suggest getting your pet checked by your vet to ensure they’re up to date on vaccinations. You may also want to check with your vet about getting your pet micro-chipped to ensure you’ll be able to find them in the event you’re separated. Lastly, you’ll want to do some research on quick remedies for car sickness, allergies or dog anxiety to make sure you’re prepared for everything!
