Pet friendly medical transport service

Pets are important. Besides being cute and entertaining, they can ease loneliness, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and combat depression.

It can, however, be difficult to travel with pets, especially for the elderly and for people with special medical needs; two groups that benefit the most from animal companions. Leaving the furry or feathered friend behind can increase the stress of an unusual situation.

Med Transport Center is a long-range medical transport service with roots in St Petersburg, Florida, and their philosophy is that everyone should be welcome, including the pets. They offer transportation all over the USA for distances over 300 miles. Dogs need to have a collar and leash, and smaller animals should travel in a crate.

While dogs are the most common animals seen on the trips, cats and birds have also accompanied their owners.

    1. I think so too. Being able to bring a pet can make a world of difference. =)

  2. That is amazing! My pets are my family and bringing them along with me will make the trip that much better. I won't need to worry about them during my trip and the comfort they will bring me is priceless!

    1. Hi Stacy and thank you for coming over! I know what you mean; my world revolves around my dogs. If I needed this type of transportation I would really appreciate being able to bring them.
