Planning a trip and finding a dog sitter to watch and feed your dog while you’re away can be difficult. Are they going to take good care of your pet? Are they going to feed it right? Is it going to be sad when you part? Are you? You don’t have to go on a trip without your dog, you can bring it with you. However, before you do that, you need to consider a few things. First, travelling with your dog can be a lot of fun and a great experience, but only if you arrange everything properly. So, if you have decided to take your dog on a trip with you, you need to plan everything. So let the planning begin.
1. Take your dog to the vet
Before going on a trip with your dog, it is essential to take it to a check-up and make sure your dog has gotten its vaccine on time or see if any additional vaccinations are needed for the purposes of the trip (this depends on the destination, because some places present a higher risk of Lyme disease and other health threats).
Make sure your dog is healthy before you take it anywhere, as you don’t want your furry friend to experience health problems while you should be enjoying. In case there is any health problem, you should treat your dog before your trip and check with the vet if your friend can go with you. Also, it is important to do a little research about the vet offices at your destination, just in case your dog needs veterinary care.
