Always have current identification and collar and/or harness on your pet. A microchip is great, but an ID tag is faster!
Bring copies of current vaccinations whether you plan to board your pet or not; put a copy of the vaccinations in your glove compartment of the vehicle you are traveling in.
FOOD & TREATS
Bring your pet’s regular food and favorite treats and chews… if possible, bring extras of everything.
BEDDING & FAVORITE TOY
Bring your pet’s bed, pad and/or familiar towel or toy to help make your pet feel at home.
COLLAR, HARNESS, LEASH
Also bring an extra collar/harness and leash.
Bring medications and full instructions on how to feed and medicate your pet. If your pet uses more than 2 pills a day, consider putting them in a daily pill container.
Make note of any allergies and/or medical concerns. Also include an emergency contact name/number should something happen to you or your family.
CRATE OR HARNESS FOR TRAVELING TO THE RANCH
Invest in and use a crate and/or harness for the safety of your pet and family when traveling.
Tip: Pack all of your dog’s belongings, including medicine, food, blanket, toys and instructions, in a duffle bag with your dog’s name attached.
