You likely keep a first aid kit for your pets at home; it is just as important to have one with you when you travel. For the most part, you can bring the same first aid kit you use at home for your pets with you when you travel with them. Pet first aid kits should include items such as absorbent gauze pads, a foil emergency blanket, non-latex disposable gloves, tweezers, a thermometer, towels, a flashlight and a self-cling bandage that stretches and sticks to itself, but that will not stick to your pet’s fur or skin.
However, there are some items your pet first aid kit should include that are specifically necessary for traveling. In your traveling pet first aid kit, you should include identification for your pet and a list of important phone numbers, including phone numbers for the nearest emergency animal clinic, a poison control center or hotline, proof of rabies-vaccination status, a current photo of your pet and copies of all other pertinent medical records.
