When planning a vacation with your pet, find a pet friendly hotel. Research the accommodations, some have restrictions and rules concerning your furry friend traveling with you. For example, the hotel may have restrictions on size and breed of dog. In some pet friendly hotels, “pet” may only mean dogs. This will make a difference if you are traveling with your feline companion. If you are traveling by automobile, plan to make stops for potty breaks and to stretch out legs. Also preplan eating arrangements, you never want to leave your pet unattended in a vehicle because of the possibility of overheating.
If you travel with your pet there are some things that you need to pack and keep on hand. Pack your pet’s own bedding, kennel, bowls, food and snacks. Familiar items and food helps decrease anxiety and also helps prevent gastrointestinal upset In your pet’s luggage take along a current copy of vaccinations records, health certificate, and a current photo just in case you may have to go to the emergency clinic or you need to show proof at the hotel. I would also recommend to get a prescription of Cerenia to take on the trip too. Cerenia is an anti-nausea medication that work better than Dramamine for motion sickness. One dose lasts for 24 hours and does not causes sedation like other medications. To read more about Cerenia go to http://cerenia.com/dog-motion-sickness.html and talk to your Veterinarian before using any medication for motion sickness. So there is no reason to leave your furry family member behind.
