RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - As the holidays begin, it is important to remember the comfort and safety of pets. Today, with more pet-friendly travel options than ever before, pet owners can happily bring pets along by car, plane, or train.

Expert veterinarians at BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital recommend following these tips to ensure a safe and low-stress trip.

Certain dog and cat breeds are particularly susceptible to the hazards that air travel can bring, such as bulldogs, pugs, Boston terriers, and Himalayan and Persian cats. These animals have short nasal passages and more narrow airways, which puts them at higher risk for breathing difficulty and heat stroke, especially in poorly ventilated or temperature-controlled areas.
