Out and About: Quick Travel Tip

For long car trips with your pup or cat, keep a frozen water bottle on hand. You can place it in a carrier or hold it up to give thirsty pets some refreshment. That way, pets get some liquid to lick, but not so much that you'd need to stop the vehicle to set up a dish or have extra bathroom breaks. Also, keep a stash of pet's kibble in a plastic bag – if he starts to fuss, give him a nibble to calm him down.

Stay tuned for our Out and About feature returning after this holiday week!

My parents travel 2 1/2 hours every weekend to the ski hill with at leats two cats and the dog and all the animals are always fine with it and don't get water or food.

i never though about this! my cat doesn't mind traveling but he does get hungry and thirsty. and it's hard to control the water.

Great Idea about the water bottle - my dog gets ice cubes when it's close to bed time and she's thristy. She loves them! She thinks they are treats.

These are great tips, but my puppy hates to travel. Every time we go on long car trips she won't eat and she hardly drinks! Maybe I can try these tips and she'll do better on trips...
