Pet Safety Travel Tips

To most pet owners, keeping their pets happy and healthy is their primary goal.  But many are putting their pets in harm’s way without even realizing it!  Unknowingly, many pet owners put their pets in danger when they place them into their vehicles to transport without giving them proper protection to ensure a safe and comfortable ride.

 

Things To Do:

  • Keep them secured – You wouldn’t let your kids ride in your vehicle unsecured with a seat belt or car seat, so why would you let dogs or cats?  When pets are involved in vehicular accidents where they are not restrained, they can suffer serious injuries such as broken bones, internal injuries or severe trauma.  Additionally, pets can become disoriented and afraid after a collision and run away from the scene of the crash.  Not only does this […]
