1.Visit your vet
This should be your first stop for a number of reasons. Make sure your pet is up to date on all their shots and obtain records for travel validation. These will be necessary for pet-friendly hotels, animal boarding facilities, etc. Remember to ask your veterinarian for any prescription refills or additional medications your pet may need.
Inform your vet about your destinations. They may be aware of required specific environmental inoculations. Did you know Hawaii has animal quarantine rules? It’s always wise to do your research and be aware of any destination-specific regulations for pets.
