"Must do" when traveling with pets

Like many of you, my dog is not a pet. She's family. She travels extensively with my husband and I. One of the most important pieces of advice I can offer is to attach a notorized "Pet Medical Directive" to your car registration. Include all important facts about your pet, including a current shot record, any known allergies, microchip #, vets name, address & phone number and a picture of the pet. We also chose to include a financial responibility statement for any and all medical care deemed necessary by a licensed vet, and for any boarding required. This included, but was not limited to, a preferred pet resort/spa setting. This is the only way to insure your pet will be taken care of if something should happen to you.

Hi SouthPointMom, thanks for the great advice. We have just acquired some new labradoodle puppies and are planning a road trip up to the Grand Canyon and beyond. We will be taking all these tips on board! Thanks greatly

Have a special id tag made up for your pet that gives current telephone

and other information as you travel. We have found a few dogs in our travels

that did not have current id on and also we are not always in a area where there

is microchip scan available.

We travel in an RV with a tow, so our pets information include all our vehicle

information along with license plate numbers and two cell phone numbers of

the phones we have with usl.

See you care about your dog, she has become a member of your family. Now take the dog out is not difficult, but there will always be all sorts of trouble come one after another. So thank you for your advice, this is very useful advice. http://www.rctophobby.com/ This has largely avoided the accident occurred when we act with confusion
