Safely Traveling With Your Pet

Posted by Steve McJuary on 2/2/2015

Safely Traveling With Your Pet

Obviously the easiest way to travel with your pet is by car. However, airlines have made it easier for pet owners to allow their animals to travel by flight and also by train in the baggage cars. Having these options make it easier to plan trips near and far away.

But even with the advancements made to accommodate traveling pets, you should still have a safety plan to avoid any problems that can occur.  Always check with your veterinarian prior to travel to make sure your pet is in good health.

Travel by Car:

Crate train your pet beforehand as it's not safe for them to roam in the vehicle. Front seat should be reserved for human passengers only. Make sure you have plenty of food, treats and toys to keep your pet occupied. Adjust travel time to allow for plenty of rest stops and bathroom breaks. Have your pet expend as much energy as possible so that they sleep most of the way.

By Airplane:

Airplane travel can sometimes be harmful to pets because of low oxygen levels and heat stroke from being kept in baggage area. In advance, ask the airline if your pet can travel in the cabin with you in their own crate. This is sometimes allowed when the animal is small enough. Make sure you have enough of the essentials, food, water, treats, and toys. Ask the airline about immunization requirements and their treatment of passenger pets. Get your pet acclimated to a crate prior to the flight. When travel by plane is absolutely necessary, choose the quickest flight as possible. Too much time spent in the cargo area can be dangerous.

By Train: 

Amtrak currently does not allow pet travelers, unless it is an assistance dog. Smaller railroads will sometimes allow pets to travel on their trains. As the owner, you are solely responsible for pet care. Railways do not take any part in animal care.
