  1. When traveling by car, cats and dogs should go in carriers that are secured to a seat.

  2. On long trips, make sure to stop frequently for pets to relieve themselves and stretch.

  3. Never travel with a pet in a truck bed. A sudden change of motion or impact can be fatal.

  4. When traveling by air, make sure you read your airline's policies: they can vary.

  5. Always make sure your pet has access to water and gets food during long trips.
