Travel Tips For Your Pets

We ALL love our Pets, they’re considered our “Best Friends / Family”. And just like traveling with a small child, it can be a wonderful and bonding experience or a not so pleasant one. Its all in the planning! One great tip I got from my neighbor was, if you’re planning on a long drive for instance, before you actually take that Road Trip, is to take a trial run to see how your pet responds. Does he get car sick? Anxious? Its a really good idea to find this out first, believe me! Not all pets are good with traveling. Could be because of age or they’re just too excited. Below you can read up more about traveling with your pet and  the article also offers the tips to help you prepare for a safe and smooth trip, as well as the steps you can take to make traveling a pleasant experience, for both you & your pet!

Make The Best of The Fall Season With A Few Tips

Its always a good idea to keep up with Travel, Travel Tips, and Vacation ideas as you plan your vacations ahead. Fall just so happens to be my favorite time of year & as those warm days just basking on the beach, and the last rays of sun lingering late into the evening are winding down. Crisp, cool temperatures and crunchy leaves make fall our favorite time to wander through Central Park in New York City for example. Also,
lets go walking in the woods and enjoy the dramatic fall colors — without the summer crowds. Theres nothing like biking under a fiery orange canopy of trees! So reading up on the latest, is certainly something we suggest, as we approach the upcoming Season. It could be just for fun, or educating yourself on safety, travel laws, ect.  Enjoy!

Travel Health and Safety with H1N1 Flu

The Swine Flu (H1N1) has surged again this season.  As Autumn and Winter travelers reach their destinations, it’s important to know the signs of the H1N1 Flu since the level of risk in various regions may sometimes be unknown.  We encourage you to rely on your doctor as your main source of care and advice on seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccinations and treatment.

What to Do If You Get Sick
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that if you get sick with flu-like symptoms, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people, except to get medical care.

Most people with 2009 H1N1 have been only mildly sick and have not needed medical care or antiviral drugs. The same is true for seasonal flu. If you get sick with flu, call your doctor for advice. If your doctor decides that you do need drug treatment, medicine will be most helpful when started within the first two days that symptoms begin to show.

Here are some tips from CDC on what to do if you’re sick:
1)  Know the signs. Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches, chills, tiredness, diarrhea and vomiting.

2)  Know the emergency warning signs. Anyone who has one or more of the emergency warning signs below should get medical care right away.

3)  If you are not sure what to do if you or a family member is sick, contact your doctor. He or she will best be able to guide you.
