If you're taking trip with your pet, make sure you have all the necessities:
-- A supply of the animal's favorite food. This is not a time to introduce new foods -- he or she will be much happier with familiar tastes.
-- Bottled water. Pets need to drink regularly, and unfamiliar water may be off-putting to a dog or cat who needs the hydration.
-- Food and water dishes
-- Can opener
-- Pet treats
-- One or two favorite toys or objects
-- Comb or brush
-- Leash and harness
-- Paper towels
-- Disinfectant/spray deodorant
-- Plastic bag and scoop.
