Enjoy Vallarta · Nayarit with Your Pet: Tips for a Safe Trip
The best season to visit Vallarta · Nayarit has begun, offering the opportunity to enjoy its beautiful beaches and landscapes with our faithful four-legged friends.
The Vallarta Lifestyles editorial team understands the importance of pets, so here are some tips to help you bring your dog or cat along and enjoy an unforgettable vacation together.
Sociability is Key
Before embarking on your adventure, make sure your pet is sociable. Getting along with other pets and people in a new environment will depend largely on your dog or cat being accustomed to noise and different places. Peaceful companionship during your travels depends heavily on their behavior.
Carrier: Their Safe Haven
In addition to the leash, it is important for your pet to be comfortable traveling in a carrier. This space not only facilitates travel, but also serves as a haven and resting place during the trip.
If you plan to travel by air with your pet, research the options available to you. You can bring them in the cabin, register them as a service/emotional support animal, or document them. Be sure to check the airline’s policy before purchasing your ticket to avoid any kind of surprises.
For domestic flights, you will need a health certificate issued by a veterinarian, valid no more than 15 days. For international flights, a certificate of health and fitness to fly is required, valid no more than 5 days prior to travel.
Keep your pet’s vaccination schedule up to date. If traveling abroad, check with your veterinarian for specific requirements.
Protection Against Parasites
Protect your pet from internal and external parasites before and after travel. Follow your veterinarian’s instructions and make sure antiparasitic medications are administered correctly.
Enjoying both Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit with your pet is possible by following these tips. Keep up to date on vaccinations, parasite prevention, and vet visits to ensure the well-being of your pet, yourself, and those around you while traveling.
