Christmas Vacation Safety Reminders

  Christmas is just a few days away and many of you will be hitting the highways and skyways to visit with family and friends. For those of you driving with your dogs, here are a few safety reminders.
1) Please make sure your dog is secured in the car either in an appropriate harness , crate or car seat devise. 
2) Do NOT let them stick their heads out of the windows. There is danger of eye injuries as debris from the roadway can hit their faces.
3) Please stop along the way to give them a potty break and be sure they are leashed when you do so. They will be in strange territory and you do not want them to take off on you when they smell something interesting.
4) Be sure to bring along water for them and a treat or play toy to keep them occupied.
5) Make sure you have a sufficient amount of their food as well as any medications or supplements they may be on, for the duration of the trip.
6) Bring toys, treats and their doggie bed if you have room. It will make them more comfortable to sleep in something familiar when you get to your destination.
7) Be sure they are wearing a collar with up to date identification on it.
8) Drive safely!!

If you are leaving your "furry kids" with a pet sitter, please be sure to do the following:
1) Make sure the pet sitter has your contact information and an emergency contact number if you can't be reached.
2) Leave your veterinarian's contact information handy.
3) Have plenty of food on hand for all animals, as well as litter for cats.
4) Be sure you have a sufficient amount of medication, supplements etc on hand and leave written instructions as to how they are to be administered, if needed.
5) Leave an extra key with a neighbor or friend and their contact information for the pet sitter.
6) Let your neighbors know you will be having a pet sitter come by so they know why the strange car is there.
7) Make plans with the pet sitter as to how and how often they will be in touch with you, ie daily texting, emails or phone calls.
8) Be sure to contact your pet sitter when you get home or alert her or him if you are delayed and need an extra visit.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful trip. Keep safe and all the best to you and your family members, the furry ones as well as the human ones!
