Camping Safely With Your Pet

Camping with your pet can be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your beloved furry friend. Certain safety precautions should be observed to be sure a fun time does not turn into an emergency situation. Follow these guidelines to ensure a safe and enjoyable time for all.

Make sure your pet is up to date on all vaccinations, especially rabies. There is a chance your pet could come into contact with wildlife.

Animals should wear up to date ID tags with name, address and phone number clearly visible. If possible, let a ranger know where you will be camping and keep a picture of your pet with you in case he goes missing. Keeping your pet on a leash at all times will help keep him from getting lost.

Always bring clean drinking water for your pets. Although there may be a water source nearby your campsite, these streams and rivers are often contaminated. Additionally, some natural water sources could contain parasites that might be harmful to your pet.

Never leave your pet alone in a tent or vehicle. Temperatures, especially in Florida, can quickly rise in enclosed spaces.

In addition to excessive heat, cold can become a problem depending on what time of year you choose to go camping. Cold weather is good for getting rid of unwanted critters like ticks, but it can be a danger to your pet. Never leave a pet alone in a cold car or tent and always bring a sleeping mat or pad for them to sleep on. This will prevent your pet from sleeping directly on the cold ground. Even in a tent, the cold can be too much for your furry friend without a sleeping pad.

Add a few items to your first aid kit such as tweezers for removing ticks, antiseptic, rubbing alcohol and bandages.

Be sure to seal your pet's food in a critter-proof container. This should be something that could keep everything from bugs to bears out. And always bring a little extra food in case of emergency.

Follow these simple guidelines and be sure to have your veterinarian's phone number and the number for the nearest emergency clinic on hand. Preparation will guarantee a safe time for the whole family.
