7 tips for travelling with your pet

7 tips for travelling with your pet

7 tips for
travelling with
your pet this

It’s that time of the year when day trips, road journeys, and holidays are in full swing.

If you’re taking your beloved furry companions along, here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Incorporate Extra Breaks Factor in additional stops during your journey to allow your pet to stretch their legs and attend to their bathroom needs.

2. Pack Treats Ensure you have a supply of your best friend’s preferred treats. These can serve as rewards for good behaviour throughout the trip.

3. Crack the Windows Slightly Partially cracking your car windows by a few centimetres can help balance the air pressure inside and outside the vehicle, reducing the chances of nausea. This practice also promotes ventilation and maintains a comfortable temperature inside the car.

4. Find Pet-Friendly Spots See if there are any pet-friendly cafes, parks, and accommodations along your route, especially if you’re planning an overnight stay.

5. Address Nausea If your pet tends to experience car sickness, consult your veterinarian regarding suitable motion sickness medication.

6. Tackle Anxiety Consider bringing a few of your pet’s cherished toys on the journey. These items can help alleviate their anxiety while travelling in the car.

7. Prioritise Safety Whenever your companion is in the vehicle with you, make sure they are securely fastened with a harness or enclosed carrier. This is crucial for keeping both you and your pet safe.

If you have any questions about travelling with your pet, please speak to your Vet.

I have been a patient of Yeronga Vet Clinic for over 20 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Dr Lisca and the team are second to none. Recently my 3 year old Labradoodle Daisy ruptured her cruciate ligament and underwent surgery. The professionalism and care Daisy received was top class. I would recommend Yeronga Vet Clinic to anyone looking for a great vet service for their fur baby.

We first came to Yeronga Veterinary Surgery nearly 4 years ago, carrying our tiny black Labrador puppy Delilah in, hoping to find some guidance and caring attention, and just a little bit of shared dog-madness. Well, we were in luck, and we have never looked back. The team at Yeronga Vet Surgery have been nothing short of exceptional at every step of our journey with them. From the basics of preventative care to important surgeries (and the odd mini-emergency thanks to our hungry labradors…) everyone has been both professional and welcoming, and more importantly, extremely good at their jobs! I am constantly blown away by the care and attention we receive, and the fact that our dogs cry with excitement when we pull into the street says it all. We’ve never had dogs who are so excited to visit the vet. We can’t recommend the team highly enough – they are exceptional.

Hi there puny human my name is Bastet. Here is a picture of me in all my glory to help your feeble human brain rest for a moment so I don’t pile on to much information at once. Ready? Nevermind let’s continue. Every few months my manservant deems it necessary to verify the divinity of close personal friend Zeus and myself, here is picture of us looking regal. I know you’re thinking “They are clearly perfect why would he waste their time.” and the answer is frankly he’s not very bright but means well so we indulge him. One thing we demand in return is that he takes us to the Yeronga Vet Surgery where we know we will be shown the respect and deference as befits ones such as us. So if you must interrupt the napping, playing or eating of your betters take them to Yeronga Vet Surgery.

Yeronga Vet have alway been wonderful in their professionalism and care over the years for those furrier members of the family, adding a healthy dose of genuine sympathy for those less routine difficult visits.
