This is Jade, and she loves the idea of traveling with pets.
Jade was a rescue dog from death row. And when I say death row I mean I would have had to watch the injection after surgery was finished on her. She was a surgery dog at veterinary school, too sick to stay in shelters. Her time was up.
After seeing her I refused for this to be the truth. After much persistence I was given approval to adopt. A little medicine fixed her right up and she has been our pooch ever since.
I traveled often through veterinary school but after adopting Jade it was tougher to go on last minute trips with my husband. Not only did it cost money, but we also worried about her while we were gone.
The solution? We began traveling with her. She is more well traveled in her 3 yrs of age than I was my first 20 years of age. Traveling with pets is fun, and keeps that pocketbook a little bit fuller.
Next time you plan a trip think about taking your pet along. With the proper preparation you may have just as much fun and save a few bucks by bringing your furry child along for the ride. Need some pet-friendly travel tips? Click here to see some tips straight from a veterinarian.
