Do your summer plans involve travel with your pet?

From Mental Floss, "5 Tips for Staying Safe and Sane While Traveling With Your Pet."

Here is one more tip: Often, it helps pets a great deal to receive a dose of some kind of sedative or anti-anxiety medication prior to travel. Discuss this with your veterinarian, and if they think it's appropriate, you should give the prescribed dose to your pet at home to observe the effects before using it for travel. Sometimes, the results of the trial may result in the dose being adjusted up or down.
