If you are camping with your pet, remember that sometimes your animal can get disoriented in unfamiliar surroundings. He/she may even get lost. Be certain your pet has adequate identification, such as tags on your pet's collar and an identification microchip implanted under the skin, so that you can recover your animal. The ID tag should include phone numbers of people who can reach you while you are on vacation, as well as the phone number of a reliable contact back home.
