Pet Travel tips for Holidays/Vacations!

Travelling with a Bunny or a pet is not an easy thing to do,but with careful planing your trip can go so much more smoothly,The first thing you need to do is make a list of everything you need to take for your pets.

This is my mummy’s list for me:

Play pen

Blankets and a sheet and clothes pegs

Litter tray and litter material

Big bag of hay

My pellet food

Salad greens

Water

Food and water bowls

Toys

My Harness and leash

Pet Carrier

PetStroller

Stuff for Day trips:Beach Tent,Parasol,Windbreak

And she checks to see if she needs a fan in summer

Bunny First Aid kit

Telephone no. of the nearest Bunny vet at your destination.

Pet travel Insurance if needed.

 

Find the perfect pet friendly accommodation for you and your pet to stay in.Mummy normally takes us to stay in Holiday park Caravans as there is plenty of room and a kitchen for preparing my salads.She usually uses http://www.hoseasons.co.uk/ where you can book pet friendly caravans,lodges,boats or even cottages or http://www.parkdeanholidays.co.uk/ .

She is also planing a camping trip when she has all the necessary stuff cause she says she doesn’t rough it when she camps she calls it Glamping because she wants us all to me comfy with all the mod cons too!But with a good Search online there are plenty of pet friendly campsite, holiday parks, and hotels to suit all budgets and facility requirements.

You then need to plan and check the length of your journey.Take your time there’s no rush to get where you are going when you have pets.Plan in lots of break stops for your pet so that they can have a drink,food and go to the toilet.Mummy only takes me on car journeys and she plans in pit stops as she calls them for around every hour to an hour and a half as she knows I get fidgety after that length of time…..Plus Mummy likes to drink lots of water her self so that means she needs to stop for her self too.For those of you who are travelling abroad,you need to check you have the right type of carrier for a plane or your pets has comfortable place in your car for ferry journeys

If your travelling abroad from the UK you will need to have a pet passport so make sure you have that in place and check any restrictions.Bunnies don’t need a pet passport when travelling to the EU.Also Pets can’t fly in to the UK in the cabin its not permitted but it is possible to fly to Paris and then travel across the channel.

Finally when you get to your destination you need to set up their sleeping arrangements so tat they can settle in stress free while you unpack your cases.With all that done both you and your Bunny or pets can enjoy your holidays together and share some great memories!

This is only a few tips but with research and planing you can travel safely to suit the needs of you and your pets!So with the Summer Holidays here for most of us We wish you all safe but happy travels!

Summer Safety with Speedy and the ASPCA + Give away!

With Summer weather finally here ,we were asked to join up with the ASPCA and do a post on Keeping your pets Safe.In the U.S they will soon be having July 4th celebrations plus July 1st is ID Your Pet Day and the ASPCA have this great Great Pet Safety App which will help to you pet safe and help you in an emergency should they go missing.

 Another thing pet owners need to be aware of is the hot temperatures that can affect your pets.With the heat comes many dangers like pets over heating….remember they have fur or feather coats that they can’t take off.So keep them cool by keeping them indoors during the hottest times of the day,switch on the Air conditioning or use fans and wrapped frozen bottles of water to use as cool packs for your pets,close your drapes as it helps to keep the suns heat out of the house and most of all keep plenty of fresh water down for them.

Another thing to avoid is hot pavements as these can burn the paws of your pets if its to hot for you to walk barefoot on then its too hot for your pets,when your walk your pets take with you cold fresh water so that they can stay hydrated and most important of all never leave your pet in a car the sun will boil them causing heatstroke….heatstroke KILLS!

And now for the fun bit the ASPCA have lined up an ID Your Pet Gift Pack for one Lucky Winner,all you do is leave a comment below and Me and Mum will video the live drawing of the winner.You have till Tuesday 27th June to leave your comment and then we will do the draw to pick the winner!Good luck Everyone!
