(NAPSI)—With road trips, fireworks and thunderstorms, summer can be a tough time for some pets. Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to ease your animal’s stress, whether at home or on the road

• First, provide a comforting, loving environment for your pet.

• Next, according to the experts at the ASPCA, when you travel, you should use a well-ventilated crate or carrier that is large enough for your pet to move around in. Have him or her spend some time in the crate before the trip.

• Make frequent stops in parks and other green spaces so you and your pet can stretch your legs.

• Remember to pack a bag for your pet, too, including food, water, bowls, leash, plastic bags and grooming supplies. Don’t forget that favorite toy or pillow.

• If your pet still shows signs of stress, veterinarian-recommended drops formulated to help with a wide range of pet problems—including anxious behaviors from travel, changes in routine and fear of loud noises—can help. Four drops of RESCUE Remedy® Pet* in the food or water bowl, on a treat or favorite chew toy can help ease pet stress naturally.
