While studies and stats have varied, there’s no doubt more consumers than ever are traveling with pets. In fact, some studies have shown that up to 77% of the pet owners surveyed bring their pets along on trips! Well, we certainly know this first hand here at Kuddly. Kuddly’s mobile-first marketplace helps pet owners everywhere find and connect with veterinarians for pet health and care help, and that often includes finding veterinarians in other cities while on travel or relocation.
It’s certainly exciting to see the growing trend of pet-friendly hotels, businesses and even whole cities who are recognizing that more pet owners than ever want to include their animals in travel plans and trips. Cities like San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and so many others are making it easier than ever to visit and reside with pets. Airlines are also taking note! Some have been said to have plans in the works for pet-friendly terminals for furry friends and family to relax and recline while waiting for flights. Many are also changing policies for pet travel. How awesome for pets and pet owners everywhere!
