Six Travel Tips for Pets

1. Never leave your pet unattended in a car. It can take just minutes for a dog to die from heatstroke and a small animal will suffer even faster.

2. Give your pet a light meal about 2 hours before you set off on a long journey and make sure they’ve been to the toilet.

3. If your animal is travelling in a carry box then this must be made of wire mesh. Cardboard boxes trap heat and could kill your pet.

4. Keep fresh water available on all journeys.

5. A dog should be restrained by harness or barrier.

6. Don’t let your dog put his head out of the window; passing vehicles could injure him, his eyes or ears could be damaged by particles in the air or he could try to jump out.
