Prep before the road trip

If you plan on going on a long road trip with your pet in your Clermont Toyota, we recommend prepping for it in advanced. Here are some pet tips from our Clermont Toyota team to help you gear up: 

Short drives - If your pet isn't used to riding in the car, take them on short drives. Pets react in different ways, this way you'll be able to determine how you can make them more comfortable; especially if they get car sick!

Short walks - Start taking them for short walks to get them used to the pit stops while on the road. This way you won't have any accidents in your Clermont Toyota!

Visit the vet - Make sure your pet is up to date on shots and is clear for travel. If they have motion sickness, ask your vet if you can give them anything.

What to bring - Pack a pet travel kit to ensure you have everything your pal might need during your travels. These are some of the things you'll need while on the road: 
  • Food 
  • Treats 
  • Toys 
  • Bowls (plastic container)
  • Water 
  • Leash and harness 
  • Plastic bag or litter and box 
  • Cleaning and grooming supplies 
  • Medication 
  • Crate/bed and blankets 
  • Towels 

Plan route - Plan your route to know where you can stop with your pet. Make sure the rest stops are pet-friendly or else you and your pet will be stuck in the car for a while. Remember to NEVER leave your pet unattended, especially in the car.
