10 Essential Tips for Camping with Your Pet


5. Pack a First Aid Kit

Like us, our pets can occasionally get into difficulty. Visit your local veterinarian or pet store before you travel to stock-up on antiseptic wipes, a soothing lotion for skin irritation and anti-travel sickness medication. Make sure you pack a good supply of bandages and a pair of tweezers for removing splinters or stones from tiny paws.

6. Bring Some Extra Toys

Occasionally, your pets may need to entertain themselves whilst you are performing certain tasks. Kong toys are ideal for dogs as you can fill the toy with treats that will keep your pet happy for hours. If you have to leave your cat alone for a short period, bring its favorite toy or a new one that contains catnip.
