The road beckons to many who plan to take a four-day weekend to celebrate the Fourth of July later this week. Many plan to take their pets. Before you leave, make sure your pet and car are ready for the trip.
The big mid-summer holiday is coming up this week. And with July 4 on a Thursday, many will also take Friday off to make a long, four-day holiday weekend. Some will hang around Tulsa for one or more of the celebrations. Others will hit the road. And many of those will take their pets - especially their dogs - with them.
"Taking Rover on a road trip with you isn’t as simple as jumping in the car and heading cross-country," cars.usnews.com says. "Successful car travel with your pet takes some planning, some patience, and some flexibility. You’ll need to think about them when you plan what vehicle you take, where you stay, how often you stop, and how long you can drive each day."
Among the tips: Make sure your pet is up for the trip; don't forget medicines, food and water; take frequent breaks; be sure your pet is in a crate or otherwise restrained and preferably not in the front seat; and never, ever leave your pet alone in a car no matter the weather.
"In the hustle and bustle of travel, it’s often easy or convenient to leave your pet in the car. Unless you’re in a secure, cool, and covered parking garage, it’s a horrible mistake. It takes only a few minutes for a car’s interior temperature to climb to a fatal level," cars.usnews.com says. "More and more places are making it illegal to leave a pet in a hot car. If you leave your pet inside, you might come back to a car with a broken window, no pet, and a police officer with handcuffs at the ready."
Advice about a hot car also applies while you're in the car with your furry friend. Even if you have the windows cracked or opened, it can get really hot on the road. So make sure your auto air conditioning is working. It's one of the systems you should get checked before you head out on any road trip.
