Some pet owners bring their dog with them where ever they go. We all occasionally take our pet along for a vehicle ride, and certainly must take them when making that trip to the veterinarian or boarding facility. It is probably a good idea that we have outings with our pets often enough, so they don’t dread that occasional trip to the vet. We may even be traveling with our pets for the upcoming holidays. Hazardous winter driving conditions increase the potential for and accident.
When riding in the car, we do need consider our pet’s safety, just as we do our own. Seatbelts are a must, but the pet may encounter dangers we have not even considered, especially in the front seat. Even when it’s just a short trip avoid leaving your pet unsecured. For safety, follow this advice:
We all want our companion animals to be with us for many, many years, and these safety precautions help insure that will happen.
