Taking a pet to the vet can be a stressful experience, especially if your pet is already feeling under the weather.
Dogs are probably the easiest animals to transport, as they are usually used to being out and about on a lead. Small dogs may feel more secure in a pet carrier. If you go to the vet by car, make sure your dog is restrained properly, either with a car harness, in a crate, or behind a dog guard.
If you’re going to the vets in Croydon, you might take a bus, train, or tram. Pets are allowed on public transport, but staff can ask you to get off if your pet is causing a nuisance. Hold carriers on your lap, or put them on the floor, rather than taking up a seat.
