You stay happy, Pets Stay FREE!

Our 15% discount for pet travelers has been extended through March! Make sure to take advantage of this discount for all of your travel needs, especially since kids and pets always stay free! Click here for more info.

Don’t forget, PetMD is a very helpful tool when traveling or just in general for any question you may have on your pet.

Our Digital Marketing Specialist uses it for any nutrition related questions for her pup named Tucker:

“Tucker is a yellow lab/husky mix and will be 3 years old this March! Tucker is my first furry four-legged child, tuckso as many other first time pet parents are, I was constantly overthinking everything when it comes to food, health, exercise, etc. for my pup. PetMD has helped me over the last few years in figuring out what is best for Tucker. The nutrition section is awesome! I am guilty of sharing human food with my pup every now and then and this section and others have several blogs and articles that make you aware of what foods are good for your dog and which ones are dangerous. Nutrition, food, health, diet & exercise – PetMD has it all the information for your pet to live a happy and healthy life.”

Safe travels and happy adventures!

Pet Travel Tips

When traveling with your pet, it is very important to plan ahead to keep you and your best friend safe and comfortable on the road. Here are some helpful tips to follow that will make your travel experience a great one:

What to Bring:pet traveling

  • Pet carrier
  • Food
  • Water
  • Bowls for food and water
  • Leash or harness
  • Collar with tags
  • Baggies for cleanup
  • Bedding
  • Toys
  • Litter and litter box if traveling with your cat
  • Medical records

Helpful Tips:

  • Ensure your pet has a proper collar with up-to-date contact information.
  • Consider a first-aid kit with tweezers, gauze and antiseptic.
  • Keep a health certificate and photo of your pet with you while traveling.
  • Use a travel carrier or harness. It’s safest for your animal to be in a pet carrier or wearing a secured harness when traveling. Many pet-supply retails sell seat belt adapters, car seats and cargo barriers.
  • Never leave your pet in the car unattended.
  • Have frequent pit stops for exercise and bathroom breaks.

Remember when traveling, if you need a place to stay for the night, Red Roof Inn is a pet friendly hotel where we consider your pet part of the family and they always stay free! Don’t forget to save 15% during the month of February on your stay with us and to enter in our SPOTlight on Pet Travel Sweepstakes!
