Get into the habit of taking your pet with you when you know that you are going to places that you can take your pets; obviously not to doctor's offices or grocery store. They are great company to have ride along and it acclimates your feathered, furred, or scaly friend to riding in the car before they have to go to the vet. It also socializes them to being around people and being in different environments.
I've traveled with many a pet over the years. I love my animal friends.
