The essentials for travelling by motorhome and van with your pet

A veterinary visit is essential before any departure on a long trip with your pet. Your travel companion must absolutely be tattooed or chipped, it is mandatory.

If you ever travel outside French territory, a microchip is the only authorized means of identification. Its cost varies between 40€ and 70€. 

Vaccinations

At the time of your departure, your health record must be up to date. It is highly recommended but not mandatory.  It is the essential tool to follow the evolution of your dog or cat's health, especially for monitoring vaccinations.

Certain vaccinations are mandatory for travel to foreign countries, in particular the rabies vaccine (rabies vaccine). Once this has been carried out, you will obtain a European passport, the only proof of vaccination against this disease.

Life on board

The motorhome is a guarantee of freedom, to come and go and to stop wherever you want. It is therefore essential to clearly identify your pet. In addition to the microchip, remember to give it a collar with its owner's details. 

Also remember to put together and take with you a small first aid kit for your pet's fetish. There are many things to do, here is a non-exhaustive list: 

  • Brush
  • Lotions
  • Dewormers
  • Anti-parasitic
  • Pair of latex gloves
  • Compresses
  • Sparadraps
  • Saline Saline
  • Scissors
  • Syringes
  • Tick hook

Try to prepare your travelling companion as much as possible for his new environment: your rental motor home or van. Make a cozy place for him/her to be familiar: cushion, blanket, cuddly toy and toy. The ideal is a space just for him! 

Finally, one last piece of advice: when you travel in a mobile home, don't hesitate to take many breaks so that he can stretch his legs and get some fresh air.

 

With your dog or cat on board the motorhome, you will have to take it out often, the world being its garden! This will give you the opportunity to take the air more often, to discover exceptional landscapes, to get off the beaten track and stay in good shape!
