For many pet lovers, holiday traveling without their beloved pet simply won't do. Taking your pet along can make a holiday event fun for everyone, if you plan carefully.
Sarah Griffin, a lecturer at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences says the first step in preparing for your pet's travel is to keep up-to-date with interstate and international travel regulations, which can be found online at www.aphis.usda.gov.
"If you are going across state borders a health certificate is required,
which involves a veterinarian examining your pet, updating their
vaccinations, and ensuring that your pet is travel healthy," says Griffin.
"You should also make sure that pets are allowed at places you will be staying, especially with inns and hotels."
