ANIMAL HEALTH CLINIC IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING YOU WITH INFORMATION NECESSARY TO KEEP YOUR PETS HEALTHY AND HAPPY. BELOW ARE SOME REMINDERS AND ARTICLES THAT WE HOPE YOU WILL FIND HELPFUL, WHETHER YOU ARE A FIRST TIME PET OWNER OR A CURRENT PET PARENT.

TRAVELING WITH YOUR PET

Vacations may help humans relax, but your pets are often stressed during summer travel.
Keeping your pets on their regular schedule while on vacation will help reduce stress for animals traveling with their owners. In addition, make sure that your pets have up-to-date tags on their collars, and temporary tags may be added to include vacation contact information or a cell phone number.

If your pets ride in the car, you should stop every three hours to give your pet exercise, a bathroom break and a drink of water.

If you decide to leave your pet behind when you travel, there are many reputable pet sitting services available that we can recommend. Just give us a call.

Inter/Intra state travel requires a health certificate per federal law. If you are planning an excursion with your pet, please contact our office for assistance with obtaining the proper paperwork.

  • Trupanion
  • VPI
  • ASPCA
  • "Wanted to say thank you to your staff for taking my dog Copper in on Saturday without an appointment already set up. Copper was having some breathing issues and your staff did a wonderful job. This was a first time visit to your clinic and I would recommend everyone to come to your office."
