Everyone seems to have cabin fever after the long winter months, even our pets! So as you plan for spring break getaways, quick weekend trips to visit grandma or even a day trip to the local park or favorite hiking trail, here are a few tips for taking your furry-family member along.
Traveling by car
For your safety and the safety of your pet, use a carrier or seat belt-tested harness to keep your pet in the backseat. This will minimize injury in the event of an accident as well as prevent your dog or cat from breaking free when car doors are open at a stop. Other tips to keep in mind include:
Deciding to take your pet on a trip that requires air travel can be a big decision. Rules and regulations vary by airline and should be verified with the airline you choose.

Having your pet covered with pet health insurance prior to your trip is an important factor. With a policy in place, your pet will be covered for accidents and illnesses sometimes associated with traveling. In addition to the coverage, pet parents can take their pet to any licensed veterinarian for care, regardless of the location, and be reimbursed for the care received depending on the plan selected.
