- Be sure your pet’s identification tags are up-to-date and attached to your pet’s collar.
- Make sure your pet’s collar is not so loose that it can come off when you attach the leash.
- Consider microchipping your pet—most shelters and veterinarians have the microchip scanner that facilitates reuniting pets with their owners.
- A loose pet in a vehicle can be a dangerous situation if you are involved in an accident. It is best to crate your pet or buy a specifically designed pet seat belt.
- No matter how well trained your pet is do not allow him or her to be off leash in an unknown area.
- Never leave your pet alone in the vehicle, even for a very short period of time.
- If you are traveling by air, consult your veterinarian for a health certificate which is required by most airlines.
- Consider the weather at the time you will be flying and arrange flights accordingly.
- Consult your airline about allowing your pet to fly inside the cabin.
We wish you and your pet safe travels and a wonderful Thanksgiving!
