Here’s what you can do when your furry, four-footed friend is under the weather while you’re travelling.
WORDS David Gilchrist
You know what it’s like, you’re away on holidays and you get sick. It happens to the best of us. However, it’s perhaps worse when it’s your best mate that’s sick, especially when your best mate is your dog or cat.
In case of serious illness, it’s essential to accompany your pet to a local vet and take your pet’s records and a detailed note of your dog’s symptoms with you.
To help in the event of an injury, consider carrying a pet first aid kit on the road with you. It should include basic items like bandages, gauze and tape, as well as tweezers to remove splinters and a muzzle to keep your dog from biting, antiseptic wipes, saline solution and disposable gloves.
