4. Make Sure Safety Really Is First

Additionally, keep in mind that your pets might be more curious than usual in a new place, so it's especially important to make sure all medications and foods are safely and securely out of reach.

Another safety precaution: Research nearby veterinary hospitals, or, at the very least, make sure your phone is loaded with an app that will find one for you. We all hope not to need that information, but the time to make sure it's handy is before a problem occurs, not after.

On top of all that, it's still important to make sure your pet's tag and microchip information are up-to-date with your cellphone number. On the off chance your pet finds himself lost, it won't be of much help to have someone calling your home number while you're on the road.
