WE LOVE OUR PET’S

One of our favorite subjects to talk about.

If you love your pet as much as we love our dog then keep reading.

Travel for animals is as different as it is for humans. Every animal reacts in a different way so please protect them from hurting themselves as well as educate yourself on the laws, vaccinations and anything else you can possibly learn before you book that trip. Food and water are as just important to your pet as it is for us. That’s what this Blog and our Safe, Trip Advisor Facebook pages are all about, education &

A SAFE-FUN-TRIP!!

CHIP THEM!!

That’s right, put a computer chip in your pet.

It sounds worse than it is and in most cases your pet won’t even feel it. Take your pet to the local veterinary clinic and they will inject a tiny computer chip just under their skin, usually on their neck. This chip is loaded with important information that will help you locate the pet, that you love so much, in case he or she gets lost. Pretty simple and cheap to do but priceless if you ever needed to use it!!

TAKING A PET OVERSEAS

    “If you decide to take your pet with you when you go abroad, check with the embassies of the destination countries as to specific requirements that must be met before a pet may be brought into the country. Many countries have strict health, quarantine, agriculture, wildlife, and customs requirements and prohibitions. The Department of State has compiled a list of foreign embassies and consulates but their contact information may also be found on the Country Specific Information for each country. In a crisis in which chartered or military aircraft or ships are used to evacuate U.S. citizens from a danger area, pets will not normally be permitted on the carrier. The pet owner will need to make other arrangements to remove the pet from the area. (Service animals, such as guide dogs, are not considered pets and will be accommodated if possible.)” US Department of State says.

HAVE FUN

After arriving at your destination, relax with your pet for a little while and show them around. Teach them their boundaries and please pay close attention to them. The sooner you all relax the sooner the fun begins.
