If you’re heading out of town, don’t forget to pack all the things your pet needs, the folks at Bamboo remind us. Here are their travel tips:
- Pack a travel bag. Obviously we all know to take food and water, but pets need other amenities. Take some toys to keep them busy, but also include a blanket or bed they’re familiar with. It will help reduce their stress (and yours).
- Tags, tags, tags. Make sure your pet’s tags are updated. Going far from home? Don’t just trust your vet’s tag to work. Get one that includes your full address and phone number with area code.
- Don’t forget to take your pet’s picture with you, just in case she gets loose.
