When God gave you a pet, He blessed you with a special love.  The kind that gives and expects nothing in return.  So why do we have pet supply stores?  Because the love we receive is so special we want to give back!  It's why we spoil these little critters and take them along when we travel!  So what needs to be in your pet's suitcase...?  

  • DRINKING WATER - Because animals drink a lot, its important they have fresh water at all times.
  • FOOD - Bring plenty of food to last throughout the trip.  Too much is better than not enough.
  • PET DISHES - Pets tend to eat better in their own dishes.
  • PET BED - Your pet will be more comfortable and feel more secure in it's own little bed.
  • MEDICATIONS - If your pet has a health problem of any kind, make sure you PACK THE MEDS!
  • GROOMING SUPPLIESA clean pet is a happy pet! (and a better smelling one too!)
  • POOP BAGS - It's imperative to have the means by which to clean if your pet makes a mess. 
  • PHOTO - If your pet becomes lost, the best description you can have is a photo.

  1. Teeth Cleansing Treats

An excellent way to find most everything your pet needs is with on-line pet supply stores.  However, the big question is it be delivered when you need it??  Probably not, especially if you're on vacation.  Shopping on-line brings the most success while planning your pet's trip.  Otherwise, a complete list of pet travel needs is always a good idea!  


A great way to get cool stuff for your pet and save is to buy wholesale.   Going back to treats, The Wholesale Dog Bakery in Waynesville, North Carolina is a wholesale gourmet dog bakery with all-natural homemade treats.  Otherwise, you'll probably need to go to a wholesale store like Sam's Club, or Cosco.  Both are located 28 miles away in neighboring Knoxville, TN.   Wholesale is a great way to go if you're interested in buying in bulk.
