    Don't Feed Them a Big Meal

    If you are leaving on a road trip don't let your animals eat normally. With a ful stomach they are more likely to get car sick, so tread lightly when it comes to feeding your animals.

    Bring Lots of Water

    When people prepare for a road trip for themselves, they always include something to drink. This is even more important when bringing your animals with you.

    Make More Stops
