The dog, of course, bumps hard into the side of the truck bed, almost losing balance. The straight answer is yes, there are laws against driving with dogs in the back of pickup trucks.

By getting all of this together before you leave, you can ensure a safe and easy flight for you and your dog. Elliott, BVMS, MRCVS is a veterinarian with over 30 years of experience in veterinary surgery and companion animal practice.
