Tips for Safe Camping with Pets

camping with pets

There are a couple of weeks left til Labor Day, so be sure to make the most of the rest of summer vacation with some outdoor fun with your pets! Even if you don’t have time for a big trip, you can still find a campground nearby and enjoy a quick camping trip with the family and fur kids.

ASPCA has some really helpful safety tips for camping with pets:

1. Bring a pet first aid kit. It is always better to be prepared and often remote campsites will not have quick access to veterinary care.

2. Be sure to locate the closest animal emergency clinic and add its contact information to your phone.

3. Pet proof! Before you let your pet out on your campsite, thoroughly inspect the area to make sure other campers haven’t left anything behind.

4. Don’t let your pet roam. Because your pet is not familiar with the area, he could get lost, fall into a river, or become stuck. Other well-meaning campers may feed him something toxic or may have rat poison out in their campsite. He also may have a run in with some not-so-well meaning wildlife. (Your pet first aid kit will have everything you’ll need to make a de-skunking bath that really works).

5. Make sure that your pet has proper ID on her collar at all times and a reflective collar if she will be out on the campsite at night.

If you’re taking your pet along for some outdoor adventures, you’ll also want to read the expert tips from the folks at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center.
