Top tips for traveling with pets

  1. 1. Whether you're taking a Grand Canyon tour or a trip to the City of Lights, you'll need to take proper action to ensure your pets are prepared for the journey. This includes planning ahead by researching pet- friendly hotels, if necessary. You’ll also want to allow ample time to speak to your veterinarian and make sure your pet is ready to travel.
  2. 2. Always make sure you travel with ample water, especially during road trips. Stop often and encourage your pet to drink plenty of water from a travel dish or bowl. About a gallon of water is recommended per pet on each week- long trip.
  3. 3. Before traveling, perform a “trial run” to see how your pet reacts. Load him or her into a travel kennel or the harness you plan to use, and take a few short drives to see how they react. If your pet becomes anxious or carsick, you can take action to limit these symptoms during your upcoming travels. If you’ll be flying with your pet, it’s a good idea to let him or her get familiarized with the travel carrier, especially if they are not used to confined spaces. Allow a good month or so for your pet to explore the carrier.
  4. 4. It’s a good idea to discuss any health concerns with your vet before the trip, especially if your pet has never traveled before. Ask your veterinarian to perform a regular check-up and identify potential health issues. Also, while you’re at the vet, you can stock up on any medications or medical supplies your pet may need for travel.
  5. 5. When it comes to traveling with a pet, you want to make sure you remember everything. Here are a few common items you should remember to bring along for the trip: • Food • Bedding • Collar • Medications • Grooming Supplies • Tags • Leash
  6. 6. When driving with pets, especially long drives, it’s important to provide proper restraint to avoid injury. • Travel Kennels: Pet carriers are ideal for smaller animals, though large kennels are available for bigger breeds as well. • Vehicle Barriers: This is a great option for large animals, especially when traveling in a van or SUV. • Safety Seats: Nearly identical to a child’s car seat, safety seats secure a smaller animal using a pet harness.
  7. 7. When taking pets on a road trip, remember to take frequent breaks. This will help avoid any bathroom “accidents.” Plus pit stops allow your dog or cat to stretch their legs and expend excess energy. Breaks are also a good time to encourage your pet to drink water and stay hydrated on the road.
  8. 8. If your pet isn’t quite ready for a trip in the car or by air, consider a staycation just for them! Across the United States, animal hotels are becoming a popular option for pet owners. Offerings vary, from basic kennels to full-fledged spa resorts for your furry friends.
  9. 9. Scenic is the largest and most experienced aerial tour operator in the world.
