Family vacations are hardly meant only for the bipedal. Over half of all pet owners travel with their pets. If you are looking to make a trip with your canine companion or your feline friend, we have some invaluable tips for you.
Trial runs: Before making the actual trip, do some trial runs. See if your pet becomes anxious or car sick. It will help you prepare for the trip.
Buckle up and be careful: Pets freely wandering in the vehicle can be a distraction and risky for your pet. Thus it is advised to have a family member holding the collar or leash and being attentive to the needs of your pet.
Keep heads and ears inside: Your pet might enjoy sticking their head outside the window but riding this way can result in ear and lung infections. This is particularly true as you drive out of metropolitan cities in India.
Pit stops: It is advisable to stop every 2 hours to allow your pet to use the bathroom, hydrate and get some excercise.
Dont leave them alone: The inside of a car can get very hot, make sure that you do not leave your pet alone. Leave them in a pet friendly hotel or a shelter if you must go somewhere alone.
