What better way to really connect with your furry family member than to vacation together? And the best part, according to Adopt-a-Pet.com, is you don't even have to pack an extra bathing suit!
Traveling with your pet can be wonderful—a "real trip!" Of course, sometimes we travel with a pet because we have to, like during a cross-country move. Whatever the reason, the most important part of traveling is that everybody—including your pet—arrives at your destination safe and sound. Here are some important tips for before and during your travels.
No matter how or where you're traveling, the first rule of thumb is always this: Unless your dog or cat can say "Hi, my name is FiFi and my phone number is..." make sure your pet has as much identification as possible! Every day, we hear from people who never dreamed their pet would get lost, and they did not have an ID tag or microchip. If FiFi becomes separated from you while you are on the road, it's even less likely you'll be able to find her. This makes proper identification your only chance of being reunited.
