Traveling this weekend? No matter how you get there, AHS wants to remind pet owners to get to their destinations safely this Memorial Day Weekend and throughout the summer with the following pet travel safety tips:

  • NEVER leave your pets unattended in a vehicle.
  • Make sure ID tags and microchips are up-to-date with the proper contact information.
  • Bring proof of vaccinations and medical records when traveling across state lines.
  • Plan for the proper carrier or kennel and plan to stop plenty of times for your animal to relieve themselves.
  • Secure your pet’s crate, so it does not slide or shift.
  • Prepare a pet-friendly travel kit with food, bowls, leash, toys, travel documents, medications, etc.
  • For pets that need medication or are on a special diet, it is important to bring the proper amount needed for your time away. Give yourself plenty of time to contact your veterinarian and refill prescriptions.
