Happy Howlidays – Preparing Your Pet for Holiday Travel

Introduction:

The holiday season is upon us, and for many, that means traveling to spend quality time with loved ones. As a pet owner, including your furry friend in the festivities, is a must. However, holiday travel with pets requires some careful planning to ensure a stress-free experience for both you and your four-legged companion. In this guide, we’ll explore essential tips and tricks to make your pet’s holiday travel a joyous and safe adventure with our help.

1. Plan Ahead for Pawsome Adventures:

The key to a successful trip with your pet begins with careful planning. Consider factors such as the mode of transportation, pet-friendly accommodations, and any necessary documentation. One of the first steps in planning a pet-friendly holiday is finding accommodations that welcome your furry family member. We’ll explore the best practices for researching and booking pet-friendly hotels, vacation rentals, and other lodgings.

2. Comfort is Key – Pack the Pet Essentials:

To ensure your pet feels comfortable and secure during the journey, pack a travel kit with their essentials. This may include their favorite toys, familiar bedding, and enough food and water for the trip. We can recommend pet-friendly travel products and accessories that will make your pet feel right at home.

3. Vet Checkup for a Happy and Healthy Howliday:

Before embarking on your holiday adventure, schedule a visit to the vet for a thorough checkup. Ensure your pet is up-to-date on vaccinations and discuss any specific concerns related to travel. We offer expert advice on preparing your pet for a healthful and happy holiday season.

4. Acclimating Your Pet to Travel:

Not all pets are natural travel enthusiasts. To help your furry friend adjust to the idea of being on the move, we’ll share expert tips on acclimating your pet to travel. We understand that each pet is unique, and our specialists can recommend personalized strategies to ease travel anxiety and make the journey enjoyable for everyone.

5. Safety First – Securing Your Sidekick:

Whether you’re traveling by car, plane, or train, your pet’s safety is a top priority. Ensure they are properly secured in a well-ventilated carrier or restraint system. We can recommend the right travel safety products to keep your pet secure during the journey.
As you embark on your holiday travels with your beloved pet, remember that a little preparation goes a long way. With expert guidance and support, you can make this festive season a memorable and joyous experience for both you and your furry friend.

I have had nothing but positive experiences with this place. They coordinated getting my dog from the boarding place we left him him in order to give him the shots he needed to play with other dogs, had the whole thing figured out by the time we got off our plane. And they were incredibly helpful during my dog's fight with leukemia.

Dr. Shipley and her team were absolutely amazing with my pitbull Scout. He had stage 1 pneumonia and she caught it in the early stages so it didn't get any worse. She cared for him like he was one of her own. Didn't get nickel and dimed one bit. X-rays and meds for Scout were a good price compared to other clinics. Highly recommend Dr. Shipley and her team.
