Take Heed of Travel Tips When on Road with Your Pet


I recently took my dog, Kasey, to the veterinarian for his distemper/parvo vaccinations. We went into the treatment room and took our seats. While Kasey hid under the wooden bench I was sitting on, I spotted a book on the magazine shelf. The book was "Traveling With Your Pet AAA Petbook."

There are many resources for those of us who travel by car with our dogs, and this book is one of them. The Buddy Foundation is not endorsing this book, but we find it extremely informational.

The AAA Petbook lists websites, phone numbers and addresses for organizations offering travel information, materials, brochures and tips for happy traveling from the American Animal Hospital Association, American Boarding Kennels Association, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, American Veterinary Medical Association, Dogpark.com, Humane Society of the United States, and United States Department of Agriculture-Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

Travel tips include updating your dog's vaccinations and getting a health certificate proving up-to-date rabies distemper and kennel cough. The documentation will be necessary if you cross state or country lines. They will also come in handy if your pet gets lost and must be retrieved from a local shelter. Depending on your destination, ask your veterinarian about preventive measures for Lyme disease and heartworm.

Also, make sure your dog has a collar with a license tag and ID tags listing his name and yours, along with your address and phone number.

In addition to offering tips on selecting a carrier or crate, the AAA Petbook offers airline contact information, suggestions for traveling between the United States and Canada, and what to do in case of an emergency.

The guide also contains a list of emergency animal clinics in the United States and Canada. It's good to know there is emergency veterinary medical care available when we're on the road with our pets. The list is provided by the Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care Society as a service to the community.

The bulk of the AAA Petbook contains destinations that accept pets in the United States and Canada. The first destination is a list of dog parks throughout the United States and Canada, provided by Dogpark.com. Dog park entries include website contact information, location, hours of operation and description of the park and amenities, e.g. fence/unfenced, disposal bags, trash cans, trees, water, benches and phones. …
