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 said pet owners should remember that traveling is stressful for pets in much of the same way it is for their owners. Make sure that your pet is habituated to riding in a car before starting an extended road trip. While medication can be prescribed for anxiety it is highly recommended to just train your pet for extensive car outings.
