Riverside, California (NAPSI) - Investing a little time and effort before you leave can pay big dividends when traveling with your pet. Here are some tips that can help keep you and your pet on the road to happiness:

• If traveling by car, the experts at the ASPCA recommend using a well-ventilated crate or carrier. Make sure it’s large enough for your pet to move around in. It can help if you let your pet get used to the carrier before you leave.

• Pack a travel bag for your pet. Include a bowl, food, water, leash, plastic bags and grooming supplies. Additionally, remember your pet’s favorite toy or pillow.

• If your pet still shows signs of travel anxiety, you’ll be glad to know there are natural remedies that can help. Veterinarian recommended and 100 percent natural, Rescue Remedy Pet is designed to help address a wide range of pet problems including anxious behaviors from travel or change in routine, fear of loud noises, barking or scratching.
