Top tips

  • Ensure your pet's vaccinations are up-to-date before you book your holiday - don't leave it until the last minute.
  • If you have a long journey ahead of you give your pet a light meal before you go and remember to pack small snacks for them (and the family).
  • Pets are susceptible to diet changes so take adequate supplies of their normal food.
  • Plan to make plenty of stops along the way.
  • Pack additional items like spare collars, leads, beds, as well as toilet bags and of course plenty of water. It's thirsty work going on holiday.
  • Be aware there are more biting insects abroad than we have in the UK. Ask your vet how you can take preventative steps for your pet
