Traveling With Your Pets This Spring?

As you venture out with your pets this spring, remember to never leave your pet alone in a vehicle. Even with the windows open, a parked car, truck or van can quickly become a furnace on a hot day — and overheating (heat prostration) can kill an animal. Parking in the shade offers little protection, as the sun shifts during the day. Always carry a gallon of cold water for your pet. Source: ASPCA

Here are some additional pet travel tips to consider before venturing out on the road, in the air, camping, and other useful information.

Happy Pet Travels!

    We spent January and February in Southwest, Arizona, when our dog started coughing so bad she was chocking. We found a great veterinary clinic, Valley Veterinary Clinic in Tucson. She was diagnosed with VALLEY FEVER. This is not contagious but can be fatal. Humans also can have it. It is a fungus found in the air and ground. Since she is a black lab, she always had her nose to the ground.
