Are car seats for pets necessary?
Interview: Elizabeth Murphy, DVM.
Elizabeth Murphy, DVM, visits “Sound Medicine” to discuss the necessity of car seats for pets. Dr. Murphy advocates the use of pet crates and carriers, while cautioning drivers to fasten them securely with seat belts. Car seats for smaller dogs have become increasingly popular; however, Dr. Murphy says any form of restrained carrier works just as well.
