But pets, unlike humans, need to be handled differently when going on trips. Their anatomical structure isn’t the same as ours, so their safety on long trips are compromised when not properly buckled in.
The best thing to do is to secure them inside a proper transport crate. Transport crates are usually made of high-grade plastic that can withstand impacts. These are also designed to keep your pet safe within its confines without making it feel claustrophobic.
