If you read our previous blog about traveling with your pet, you already have some helpful tips to get you get started next time you go on a road trip with your furry friend. However, we thought it might be helpful to give some more tips on what you should actually bring on your trip. Although some people may just pack a leash and a water bowl and call it good, these people usually find that they could have prepared a little better. If you have any questions, be sure to speak with an expert here at Crown Products. We are a waste management company specializing in pet waste disposal, diaper disposal, and sanitation products.
Just like humans, dogs are no strangers to medical emergencies. And when you’re on the road, you want to be doubly sure that you’re prepared if the situation does arise. If you have your pet’s medical information, take it with you. If not, ask your vet if they have a copy of it. This could include a history of their medical history and a record of the vaccinations they’ve received. This will help a vet better treat your pet if you run into an emergency.
A First Aid Kit
If you’re out in a remote area and won’t have access to a vet’s office, you’re going to need a backup plan. Although you can bring a normal first aid kit, there are also first aid kits specially designed for pets. If you know of any other medical issues that your pet struggles with, you can add anything you deem necessary. For example, if you know your dog is going to be playing in the snow a lot, bring dog boots to protect their paws.
Their Favorite Toy
Animals can get homesick or feel antsy when they’re on the road and have to stay in the car for long hours. Sometimes, bringing their favorite chew toy or blanket is enough to keep them calm and happy until you make it back home.
Plenty of Treats
Many pets (dogs especially) don’t ask for much, aside from your complete and total undivided attention and mountains of treats. And if you run out of treats on your first day of the trip, they’re going to be left to wonder where you went wrong. It’s also important to keep your pet’s diet the same while you’re on the road because if you start giving them human food, they’re going to expect that when you get back home.
