Travel Essentials for Your Dog and Cat

If you're like us, you love taking your pet on adventures with you. Whether it is a staycation or a quick jaunt out of town, you’ll need to pack for two. After all, it isn’t easy being away from home in a new environment, especially if you’re a cat or dog!

Before you hit the road with your pet, here are a few things that you may need.

1. Pet Carrier

If you’re taking your small dog or cat, the most important item on the list is a pet carrier. This is an excellent investment when traveling because you will be able to carry your cat or dog with you on all the adventures.

Kibbles offers two types of pet carriers: Comfy Collapsible Pet Carrier and Space Pod Animal Carrier. The space pod will allow you to take your cat right on your back wherever you go. It is a wonderful carrier that gives your cat an excellent view. The collapsible pet carrier is ideal for people who want to travel with their four-legged companion. With soft internal padding and a big window, your dog will definitely enjoy traveling!

2. Cat Litter

While traveling, you will not have excessive space. For this reason, you should opt for litter that stops the smell from spreading in your hotel room. The Dome-Shaped Litter Box from Kibbles is perfect for traveling cats. The dome shape is pretty special because it is a sphere that is cut from the center, which gives your cat tons of privacy and prevents the smell from escaping.

You can also opt for portable litter trays as they can fold up for easy storage and you can dispose of the contents with ease.

3. Seat Belt Harnesses

Wherever you have your pet in a car, a seat belt harness is a must. When you travel with a cat, you must have a comfortable carrying crate since they're smaller and sometimes more difficult to control.

For dogs, you should purchase pet seat belts that come with a harness that fits around the dog's torso. Even a minor fender bender can send your dog flying forward and getting hurt.

4. Toys

All living things need entertainment, and your pet might be bored and restless in a new place. The best way to keep them occupied is to bring plenty of toys.

You can bring a favorite chew toy or a moving play set. The KONG Cozie Ultra is one of the most durable and loved toys by dogs. It supports action-packed fun and is made with robust materials to satisfy hunting and chewing instincts. If you want to keep your cat occupied, then get Lifelike Fluttering Butterfly/Bird. With a 360-degree spinning movement, your cat will stay busy and get to hone its prey drive.

5. Healthy Treats

Healthy dog treats are essential to keep in your car while you take a road trip with your furry friend. Similar to humans, your dog will need a snack once in a while. Treats also can help with stubborn dogs that might need to be directed in and out of the car.

Depending on what your dog likes, you can browse a wide range of treats accessible at Kibbles. Absolute Bites Freeze Dried Chicken is an excellent choice because they last a long time and are made with top-quality ingredients. Freeze-dried foods are natural, tasty, and lock in nutrients. These chicken bites have no preservatives or antibiotics. In addition, they are gluten-free and suitable for cats and dogs.

6. Food Supplies

Your dog will have to eat at some point and a vacation is no time to change their diet as it will only invite a number of digestive issues.

There are a few things that you can keep in mind that will help you to make the best decision for your furry friend. First, take into account your dog's age, weight, and activity level. A puppy or active adult dog will need a different formula than an older or sedentary dog.

Second, think about your dog's health history. If your pet has any allergies or medical conditions, you'll need to choose a food that is specifically formulated to meet their needs. Finally, ask your veterinarian for guidance. They will be able to recommend a brand or type of food that is right for your dog based on their individual needs. 

7. Travel Water Dispenser

All living things need water! Don’t forget to ensure you have fresh water on hand for your pet at all times. You can use a portable pet travel dispenser that is designed to stop spills and stay in place.

Kibbles offer a 2-in-1 deal with an Automatic Water Dispenser that is attached to a pet food bowl.

8. Leash

Don’t forget the leash! Your dog’s collar is probably still already on, and a cat can be leash trained. Whether you plan to take your dog for a walk during vacation or have them go to the beach with you, you’ll need to keep your dog restrained.

9. Bed

For your pet, being away from home might be tough, which is why you should pack something familiar from home like their bed and favorite toy.

10. Doggy Wipes

Dogs always seem to like rolling in something foul! You can use a machine-washable plush microfiber towel because it is ideal for wiping off wet paws, slobber, or eyes.

The Absorb Plus Antibacterial Pet Wipes are an excellent choice. The pack has 80 sheets and is free of paraben or alcohol. The extra-thick moist wipes comprise natural cleansers and conditioners, leaving your pet soft and shiny. These wipes remove dirt, dander, drool, and much more, making them easy to dispose of while traveling.

Final Thoughts

Traveling with your furry friend can be a breeze as long as you come prepared. By packing the essentials for both you and your pet, you'll be able to relax and enjoy your trip together. Bon voyage!
