TRAVEL AND YOUR PET

Whether you decide to take your pet along or not, 
here are some helpful tips:
Boarding A very popular choice.   We know by our many visitors every year.    To make arrangements to leave your pet with us at Quail Roost, give us a call for details.
By Air Contact the airlines well  in advance to check regulations and make reservations.   Be aware of weather conditions.   Choose night or early morning flights.   Make arrangements to pick up your pet from the airport as soon as possible.   Use only airline approved air kennels.  Buy the air kennel in advance to get your pet used to it.  Consult us at Quail Roost whether to use tranquilizers or not, sometimes it is recommended not to sedate your pet.
By Car If your pet is not used to car rides, take him for a few short rides before the trip.  Try to stick to your regular feeding routines.   Cats travel better in a carrying case.   Plan to stop every two hours to exercise your pet.   Don't forget to take a leash with you.   Don't allow your dog to ride in the car with his head outside the car window, flying particles can injure his eyes.   NEVER leave your pet inside a parked car.
Hope the above tips will make travel a more enjoyable time for both you and your pet.
