We all want to bring our four legged friend with us while travelling, but do you know how to properly care for your pet while it is in the car with you?
We have put together some of the best tips on how to keep you and your pet safe during car travel, this is something every pet owner should read.
Don’t forget they can be quite nervous about travelling too! Be sure to give them a good walk before you take them with you for a long trip in the car. It will burn up some of their energy and encourage them to sleep for (at least part of) the journey, which should make it more comfortable for both of you.
Whatever the device, please ensure your pet is safe and secure and won’t move when you apply the brakes, just like you have a seatbelt, they deserve a safe journey too!
After their snack, be sure to stick around until the food has started to digest, walking your pet is a good way to start digestion, burn off excess energy and tire them out a bit which should encourage them to take a nice long nap.
Again don’t travel with them in the back of the ute or truck for the same reason they can’t hang their heads out of the window. Apart from flying debris, the wind can have adverse effects on the eardrums and lungs of dogs and cats when travelling at highway speeds, which can make your best mate sick as well as premature deafness.
