Health and Identification
-Make sure your dog's vaccinations are up-to-date.
-If the mosquito season begins earlier or ends later in the area you will be visiting, make sure you bring the appropriate heartworm protection.
-Be certain your dog is wearing an identification tag giving his name, your name and home address and telephone number including the area code.
-Take along color pictures of your dog and a written description of his colorings and distinguishing marks. Record your dog's body size and weight. If he is lost, these identification aids could make the difference in locating him.
