Holiday Travel Tips

Ultimate Guide to Traveling with Your Pet

It’s officially the 2021 holiday season! That means you’re busy purchasing and wrapping gifts, planning family get-togethers, and of course, figuring out what you’re going to do with your pet during your holiday travels. This year, Nutri-Vet® has partnered with veterinarians on how to make traveling with your pets safe and stress-free.   

Travel Tip #1 – Keep the Kennel Close By

It’s important to always remember your pets kennel when you hit the road. It’s familiar and allows them to feel safe and comfortable when they are out of their environment. Bring their favorite stuffed animal and you’re all set!

Travel Tip #2 – Remember to Pack Their Food

It’s common for animals to stress when traveling. Traveling can cause pets to have accidents including over-urinating and possibly diarrhea. Packing their regular food and avoiding any other outside foods can ease their stomach (and your car seats).

Travel Tip #3 – Ensure Their Tags Are Updated

Before you hit the road, make sure your pets tags/microchip information is updated. If your pet gets loose in a strange place, it can make it harder for you to locate them. Taking this extra safety precaution can ease your mind. It’s also important to make sure their collar is secure at all times.

Travel Tip #4 – Medicines, Treats & Supplements

Traveling can cause anxiety in animals. Consider packing a calming supplement to promote relaxation for easy travel like Nutri-Vet Pet-Ease Soft Chews. It’s an effective way to keep your pet at ease during travel. Likewise, make sure you pack their favorite treat and general medicines for those who can get home or car sick.

Enjoy the Holiday Season with Your Furry Friend

As you plan for your travels using these tips, remember to snuggle and enjoy spending time with your favorite furry companion. As part of the family, you can always count on them to make you smile. Happy holidays!
