Prepare in advance for your small animal's trip, including booking pet-friendly accommodations and transportation.
Schedule a vet visit to ensure your small animal is in good health and up-to-date on vaccinations before traveling.
Choose a well-ventilated and secure carrier that allows your pet to stand, turn, and lie down comfortably.
Get your small pet used to the carrier by introducing it gradually before the trip to reduce anxiety.
Pack essential items such as food, water, bedding, toys, and any medications your pet may need.
During long journeys, take regular breaks to allow your small animal to stretch, eat, and use the restroom.
Ensure your pet has a collar with an ID tag and consider microchipping for added security in case of separation.
