The Critical Difference: Professional Pet Transport vs. DIY Pet Rides

The Critical Difference: Professional Pet Transport vs. DIY Pet Rides

Pet transport becomes a necessity for various reasons, and one common scenario arises when your local vet needs to collaborate with emergency clinics or specialty hospitals. In these situations, it's crucial to understand the significant differences between professional pet transport companies and those that opt for a more informal approach, relying on personal vehicles. 

The Pitfalls of DIY Pet Transport: 

 Some smaller operations might be tempted to cut corners by having their employees use their own cars for pet transportation. While this may seem convenient, it can pose serious risks and challenges. These DIY transports may fall outside the scope of insurance coverage, leaving both the pet and the transport provider vulnerable. Pets may not be properly restrained, and the drivers, even if clinic employees, might not undergo proper screening for safe driving practices.
