Need to take your pet to the vet? If an animal doesn't like travelling, then it's very dangerous to transport them in a car, unless they're in a proper pet carrier of some sort. A clawing cat, or a yelping puppy can easily distract the driver and cause an accident.

Take action:
Don’t use a cardboard box – it's too easy to escape from these. Pets that don’t like car rides, are also known to urinate and defecate in the car. If the pet is in a carrier, you can line the bottom with newspapers and a plastic sheet to prevent damage. Remember, a paste of bicarbonate of soda gets stains and smells out of car upholstery.
