Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer. People begin vacationing which means the family pet either goes along or is left behind. If your pet won't be travelling with you this summer here is a quick checklist of items to remember to make your pet's vacation away from the family an easy one:
  • Paperwork containing veterinary information for emergency treatment and your pet's medical history;
  • Any medications currently being administered with dosing instructions;
  • Copies of  up-to-date vaccination paperwork;
  • ID tag containing all necessary information;
  • a good supply of  food in a sturdy container labelled with your pets name;
  • plenty of treats;
  • a few favorite toys;
  • their own bedding (make sure it's washable for easy laundering afterwards).
Travelling with or without your pet, you should consider having a microchip implanted as an extra measure of precaution. We all worry when we leave our furry family members behind but following these simple steps will go a long way to giving you peace of mind while you are gone.

Including the cat or dog in your travels? Read last year's post about taking your pet along:
