Keeping Pets Safe on the Road

These days, many people travel with their pets, as they can't imagine leaving them behind. At Lithia Subaru of Fresno in Fresno, CA, we're happy that people have such a great bond with their furry friends. We have a few suggestions for making travel safer.

The back seat is the safest place for pets. This is because the front airbags can deploy at such an intense speed that they could actually injure an animal. Keeping animals in the back can also allow the driver to stay focused on the road. To do this, you may need a harness. They're widely available, and many are designed to allow plenty of movement.

If you're going on a long trip, make sure the animal has its tags on and that you've packed any necessary medications. Keeping your animals entertained with some favorite toys can keep any anxiety or boredom at bay. Periodic stops can give two- and four-legged creates time to stretch their legs.
