Sedating a dog for travel

To predict problems that may arise, consider the circumstances of a trip: When possible, prepare your pet by gradually exposing it to elements or sequences of the trip and then practice departures.

There are many factors you can’t control when you are on the road, but changing your pet’s food can cause vomiting, diarrhoea, or other problems that can be difficult to deal with while travelling.

In our mobile society, chances are good that your pet will be transported during its lifetime.

Whether for an annual visit to your veterinarian or a weekend trip, your pet will travel.

Depending on the length of the trip, water bowls can be left in the carrier or removed.

Play with your pet to engage it in some kind of positive interaction before you leave home.
