Healthy and Hydrated While Traveling

All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it. – Samuel Johnson

Everyone will surely agree with what Samuel Johnson got to say. Yes, traveling has its advantages. But there is one thing that you dread to meet halfway of your destination and that is heat stroke and dehydration. Keeping yourself hydrated while you are traveling is very important.

Here are a few tips:

1. Keep your dog leashed, or if allowed; under voice control at all times! Dogs are asked to be leashed for their own safety as much as for the wildlife and other humans. He should have his id tag on his collar at all times. Be familiar with basic animal first-aid for ticks, scrapes or poison
