How Did You Take Your Last Trip With Pets?

Sadly my pooch didn't get to go on any vacays this Christmas, but our last trip together was via car in November. Whether you just got back, are still away, or never left home this holiday season, the last time you went bye-bye with your furry friends, how did you go? Oh, and don't forget to lemme know how it went, too, in your comments below!

My fiance and I flew from Montana to Michigan with our dog over the holidays. I must say NWA did a fabulous job. Lucky got there and back safely. She was a little nervous when we got to Michigan, but after her flight back, she was bright eyed and bushy tailed. I think I was more nervous about her flying than she was!

I drove 16 hours for a move last year with my 2 cats. I drugged them with aceapromazine (SP?). THAT did not go over well. They freeked out, clawed at the carrier bars (to the point of almost hurting themselves). I had to let the older one out of the carrier and he would go from laying all drugged in my lap to growl/meowing and scratching me. All this in the cab of huge moving truck. We stopped at a pet friendly hotel and they slept it off. We didnt give them the sedative the next day, for obvious reasons! They were very good, sleeping for the most part and didnt really even meow. It's almost like they were thankful that we didnt drug them. The moral of the story is, pets dont always react predictably to sedatives, so have your vet test it for you.

I take my dog with me on a crazy-long road trip home to New York every summer. She tolerates the 12-16 hour ride really well, sleeping for most of the trip. The only problem is that she gets heinous morning breath while she sleeps, so when she pops up to see if we're there yet after sleeping for like ten hours, her breath is fierce. I had to open the windows last year!

I drive 5 hours with B-Bop once a month, he's not very good, but better now with his car seat. He's flown once and wasn't too fond of it either

The last travel trip I made with my Dog, Cookie was when we were evacuating for the storm. She was still a very little puppy...she does good riding in cars....she seems to real like it. But getting her to potty on the road was a little tideous.

We just got home from our trip home to see parents two hours ago. Echo's a GREAT traveler! We had about 8 hours in the car today, and 7 hours four days before that. On our way TO the parents' houses we had an 8 hour day in the car and then a 10 hour day in the car. Puppers crashes on his bed in the back of the car and loves being in the car with us. It's only a problem when he farts . . .

My little guy's been on 3 trips requiring plane rides this year. He's a better flyer than me, though, lol.

Wow...I'm glad Fuji is so excited about any trip we take. He just gets really fussy when it gets dark outside. There is more whining and more clingyness in the dark.

wachdoodle, That truly sounds like a road trip from hell! :rotf: I laugh with you, of course, as I have known your pain! The Current Persian (Oliver) is, thankfully, a quite little co-pilot. But that, I think, has more to do with his life philosophy (energy conservation at all costs) than being a genetically gifted traveler! :D

I love my girls BUT 6 hellish hours in my nephews compact cars with two annoyed cats was too much. They wouldn't stay in their carrier, wouldn't stop yowling, wouldn't stop wandering around the car and screaming at cars and trucks driving by. On the return trip I meant to drug them so they'd be calm for the drive but I had to take the Valium myself so I really didn't care that they were loud and unruly in the car. My poor nephew suffered the brunt of their pestering. He had to drive with one cat perched behind his neck and she alternated between purring and yowling and her sister sat in his lap with her head firmly planted on his arm staring out of the window at the full moon and drooling up a storm.
