- Keep your pet in the cab. Do not let your pet roam freely in the box while traveling. Not only is your pet at risk of falling out, it's also a danger to other drivers. If you cannot have your pet in the cab, have them in a kennel and secure it down to the vehicle.
- Have your pet secured by car leash or in a kennel.
- Keep a folder of your pet's medical records.
- Keep windows rolled up or opened at a maximum of one inch smaller than the dog's head. It can be enough for the pet to stick their head out, but not their body.
- Always have water and a small amount of food if traveling for long periods of time.
- Have an emergency vet’s number in your contacts.
- Your pet should have something that you can attach an ID to, like a collar or harness.
- If your pet has extreme nervousness/anxiety in the car, ask a veterinarian about sedation medication options.
