cages and baskets must be sufficient for the animals to sit, stand, and turn around comfortably. A pet is much better off in a comfortable crate than it is moving around untethered. 4. Prepare Your Pet's Crate for Comfort The bedding should be lined with absorbent materials such as paper or finely cut fabric. Before leaving, freeze the water in a small bowl that will melt when your pet is thirsty. Close the box securely, but do not lock it. This will allow you to open the crate for emergencies. Also, be sure to attach the animal ID to the carrier.

5. Have the Correct Paperwork The CDC recommends that pet owners notify the veterinarian as soon as possible if they wish to travel. As you may require some documents for vaccination, please complete all forms and schedule an early veterinarian visit before traveling with pets. 6. Find Out Your Destination's Pet Rules If you are traveling abroad or interstate, check the country, city, or state of destination. Rules and laws may differ from your country of origin or state. 7. Contact a Professional Animal Placement Company Just as the pet owner consults with a veterinarian, the pet owner should contact the moving company for any specific requirements. 8. Maintain Your Pet's Diet Keeping your pet on an everyday diet for a while after arriving will help prevent stomach upset. 9. Choose Pet-Friendly Accommodation Many hotels accept pets, but others do not. Be sure to check before booking. Some hotels offer specific rooms for pet owners. 10. Pack Products That Help to Keep Your Pet Calm You can also consider products that reduce anxiety. Consider a soothing pet vest, which can apply light pressure to specific areas to reduce stress. If your pet has a favorite blanket or even shirts that smell like you, put them in the carrier to keep them comfortable. Summary

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
