Red Roof Loves pets!

Pet month is still in full swing! Pet travelers, do not forget to use your 15% discount this month, whether you’re traveling with your dog, cat, chinchilla – whoever your 4-legged best friend happens to be! Don’t forget that all pets stay free!

No matter the pet, petMD is there to help you out with all of your pet needs!

Our Digital Marketing Coordinator used PetMD for her cat whenever she had questions:snapchat-7338138840540447785

“My little kitten named Louie is 2 and a half years old! PetMD has been terrific for me throughout the couple years of Louie’s life so far. PetMD even helped me pick out Louie’s name as they have a large list of male cat names to choose from. PetMD’s symptom checker is great and super easy to use. You just click on what type of pet you have, click on the area where your pet is experiencing symptoms and choose from a wide list of symptoms your pet may have. This has been very helpful as it lets me know whether I should take Louie to a vet or if he is fine and I am just being too much of a worry wart. Thank you PetMD!”

Not only that, but we are also doing some fun pet related activities including an Instagram Contest.

At Red Roof, we also recommend using PetMD with your pet when traveling or just in general. PetMD is the perfect site to find answers to all of your pet health, wellness, and basic needs.

As pet parents, we all experience those heart sinking moments of wondering “Is there something wrong with my pet?”, “Is my best friend sick?”, “Should I take my pet to the vet?”. It would all just be easier if your pet could talk!

Well, there is a way to answer all of those questions! PetMD is the perfect app and site to use, whether you are looking for symptoms, nutrition facts, pet blogs and basically, anything on any type of pet!

PetMD is pet parenting made easier. Their app allows you to get FREE, vet-qualified answers about your pet in less than 24 hours. Plus, browse PETMD’s wide range of popular pet topics, create personalized pet profiles and locate your nearest vet.
