These are some great tips from Susan Sims, publisher of FIDO Friendly Magazine, for traveling with your pet – MUST-HAVES if you’re on a road trip but also good to keep in mind for all kinds of travel.

  • A copy of your dog’s vaccination history
  • Collar and leash just in case you need a potty break in an area where those are required
  • ID tag with your contact phone number
  • First Aid kit including:
    • Tweezers to remove ticks
    • Styptic powder to stop bleeding from minor cuts
    • Eye wash to flush wounds
    • Gauze bandage
    • Adhesive tape
    • Scissors
    • Antiseptic moist wipes
  • A big supply of his favorite food, treats and water because, chances are, your pet’s very accustomed to what he’s already eating and food on the road may upset his stomach
  • Seat covers in case your pet gets to wander outside and gets a bit dirty from playing around
  • Extra blankets and towels
  • Safety belt or restraint to keep him safe in your vehicle
  • Doggy bed and sheets so he can rest comfortably
  • Travel kennel in case you need to stop off at a hotel and a kennel is required
  • Toys, toys, toys

 

This should help ensure your canine car companion is an easy rider!
