Things to bring when traveling with your pet.

  • A sturdy leash.
  • An extra collar.
  • An old blanket or sheet for the back seat of your car or wherever the pet’s carrier will be secured to make cleanup easier.
  • Two old sheets to cover bedding and furniture at your destination.
  • Some of your pet’s bedding.
  • Traveling crates, or folding crates.
  • Food.  If you do not feed a brand you are certain will be available at your destination and along the way, bring enough for the whole trip.  If you feed canned, bring a can opener and spoon.
  • Two gallons of extra drinking water from home.  When you are down to the last half gallon, begin mixing in equal parts with the water supply at your destination.  If your pet is especially sensitive, use distilled water.
  • Food & water bowl set.
  • Portable water bowl or bottle for use when away from your lodging.
  • Treats.
  • Toys or chew items.
  • All required medications, supplements, and preventatives.

  • Lint or hair remover.
  • Baby wipes or moist towelletts to wipe of paws.
  • For cats, a full letter pan with extra litter, liners, and newspaper to place underneath for cats.  Disposable litter pans are also an option when traveling.
  • Waste removal bags.  Don’t forget the pooper scoopers.
  • Old towels, carpet cleaner, disinfectant spray, and trash bags for accidents.
