Preparing Your Pet for Transport: Essential Tips

Preparing your pet for transport is crucial for ensuring their comfort and safety. Here are some essential tips:

Acclimate Your Pet to the Crate

Spend time getting your pet used to the travel crate before the journey. This can involve feeding them in the crate or allowing them to sleep in it to build a sense of security.

Keep Familiar Items

Include familiar items such as their favourite blanket or toy in the crate to provide comfort and reduce stress.

Hydration and Feeding

Make sure your pet is well-hydrated before the trip. Feed your pet a light meal a few hours before departure to avoid travel sickness.

Exercise Before the Trip

Give your pet ample exercise before setting off. This helps them burn off excess energy and settle down more easily during the transport.

Visit the Vet

A check-up before travelling can ensure your pet is healthy and fit for the journey. This is also the time to ensure all vaccinations are up to date and discuss any travel concerns with your vet.

By choosing Pets Lets Travel, you’re opting for a service that is dedicated to the safety and comfort of your pets.
