Sometimes when people partake in family travel, they want to bring along every member, including the furry one. However, there are some things that people should keep in mind before travelling with a pet. 

First, The New York Times reports that people should prepare their pets for travel, as some animals can be stressed due to the different environment. The source suggests that placing the pet in the carrier on the floor first can help get them acclimated. 

Additionally, it's important that travellers looking to bring their pet along book early, as a number of airlines have a limit to exactly how many pets are allowed in the cabin. Because of this problem it's best for travellers to book their pets in advance. 

The Cullman Times also reports that people should consider doing research about water and mosquitoes where they're visiting, as it could be harmful toward the pet. The news provider reports that if the pet comes into contact with certain mosquitoes, they may be susceptible to heartworm disease, which is why it may be a good idea for owners to bring medication.
