Get your pet ready for a road trip in your Clermont Toyota!
It’s best to prep your pet before you leave on your road trip in your Clermont Toyota. If they’ve never been in the car for an extended period of time then you’ll never know how they’ll react. Check out these tips from our Clermont Toyota team to prep your best pal:
Short drives – Start taking your pet on short drives in your Clermont Toyota! This way you’ll be able to see how they handle being in the car and if they get motion sickness or nervous. You’ll then have time to accommodate to your pet for the drive. Maybe find an alternate way to keep your pet in the car and get proper medication for the trip.
Visit the vet – Make sure you stop by your vet to make sure you vet is up-to-date on their shots and exams. Get the clearance to travel with your vet and ask any concerns you may have. If your pet got sick in your test drives, ask what you can to make it better.
Pet gear – Do you plan on letting your pet roam around in the car while you drive? That’s not safe! Make sure you find the right equipment for your pet during your drive! Not only can you pet get into things they should be while you drive, but also it can be very dangerous if they’re not strapped in and you get into a car accident. Some of the gear you can have your pet in are:
Pet supplies – Gather everything that your pet will need during the trip! When we pack for ourselves we grab our luggage, snacks, drinks, and entertainment for the drive.
