Tips for Traveling with Pets

Traveling with your Pets can be fun, but could be stressful or end in a nightmare. Here are a few tips to help you when taking your pet on a RV trip.

There’s nothing better than traveling with your dog. Cats are pretty good, too.

  • Don't be surprised, however, if there is an extra charge for your pet. You may even be assigned to an area of the campground designated for pet owners.
  • Carry a valid rabies vaccination certificate. Many government campgrounds and some RV parks require them. RVers traveling to and from Canada and Mexico are required to have a valid veterinarian health certificate, including a proof of rabies vaccination.
  • Don't leave your animal tethered and unattended outside the RV. Unable to flee, it would be easy prey for a wild animal.
  • Take care of your animal's health. Mosquitoes transmit heartworm. Ticks and fleas abound in outdoor areas. Ask your veterinarian about preventatives.
  • Pick up after pets, keep them on leashes at all times, and take them for a good walk every day. An occasional cookie wouldn't hurt, either.
