Travelling with pets

Whether you are going on a holiday or just a road trip, it is important to make sure your pet is comfortable.

Here are our top tips on travelling with your pet:

  • Plan your journey.
    Plan where and how often you are going to stop. For dogs especially, you want to plan out toilet breaks.
  • Start small.
    Before going on a long journey, start with smaller car trips. This will get your pet used to the sounds and movements of the car.
  • Bring the essentials.
    Pack travelling essentials like a water bowl, freshwater and poo bags. You can never be too sure what supplies will be available on your journey, so it is always good to be prepared.
  • Seek vet advise.
    Just like us, some pets can suffer from motion sickness. If required, our vets will be able to prescribe appropriate medication to make your pet’s trip a lot more pleasant.
  • Vaccinations.
    Make sure your pet is up to date with their vaccinations. If you are unsure, talk to our team.
  • Check microchip details.
    Are your details correct on your pet’s microchip? Our team can scan your pet and check which details are registered against their chip.
  • Make sure your pet is buckled in.
    For your pet’s safety and yours, it is important they are secured or housed in an appropriate area of your vehicle.
