A Roadmap to Wellness – Schedule a thorough check-up with your veterinarian before hitting the road or taking to the skies. This ensures your pet is in optimal health for the journey ahead. Discuss:
Microchips and Tags – Ensure your pet has a proper identification method, including a microchip and visible ID tags. These are crucial in cases of accidental separation during travel.
