Primo Network Adventures members know that planning family trips can be quite stressful, and when it comes to traveling with your pets, the stress of traveling can become overwhelming. You need to make sure that your pet is safe and secure during the entire trip. By planning and making arrangements in advance, your pets will be prepared to travel, and you will enjoy your travel experience without any unforeseen complications.
Primo Network Adventures advises tourists to take their pets for a veterinary check-up at least ten days before they plan to travel.
They need to ask for a medical certificate as proof that their pets are healthy enough to travel and have received the required vaccinations. You also need to buy a leash, food carrier, dog bed, medications, and a water bowl. Packing your pet’s favorite food and the toy will also help make your travel experience more relaxing, as these items will keep your pet occupied and happy. You need to buy a pet carrier size that is approved by the USDA rules and regulations. You also need to mark the pet carrier with the words “Live Animal” and identify the carrier’s upright position. Close the carriers, but do not lock them so that the airport personnel can handle things if any emergency arises.
Primo Network Adventures also recommends tourists put an identifying tag on their pets in case their pets lose their way. When traveling with your pets, it is best to try and book direct flights, as booking on a non-stop flight helps to reduce travel stress on pets. On the day you plan to fly, you should make sure that your pet gets plenty of exercise and eats a small meal so that he will feel tired during the flight and may sleep most of the time. You should also avoid arriving early at the airport, as the hustle and bustle of the airport may frighten your dog or cat.
