Travelling with your ESA Dog: 6 Must-Haves in your ESA's Travel Kit


Travelling with your ESA for the first time? Where travelling with your dog or cat could be the best and the most fun filled adventure of your life. But it can easily turn into a nightmare if you do not do proper and complete planning beforehand.


The foremost thing to put into your bag immediately is your animal’s ESA letter and we are sure that you did your homework before getting it. One of the key things to do before getting the letter is to have a look at an ESA letter sample before settling with one.


Back to our pet or ESA parent travel guidelines, following are the things that you must add into your ESA’s travel kit.

Water Bottles

Water is life and when you are travelling with your beloved canine then you need to have this ‘life’ a little more than usual. Pack some extra water bottles plus a spill-proof bowl to make sure that your dog is not left thirsty.

In case you are travelling through the plane, keep a refillable plastic bottle to use once you are in the plane.

Enough Pet Food

Since the trend of having pets and ESAs has significantly increased, chances are that you can find most of the dog food easily. However, to be on the safe side, pack some extra dog food to last the entire vacation.

Pack Coco’s food and water bowls and keep all of its favorite food and treats to keep it happy during the entire vacation.


Blankets and Bedding

Like us, many animals also have difficulties adjusting to a new place and, especially, sleeping in a new and unknown bed. Therefore, to make it comfortable for them, pack as much of their bedding and covers as possible. For your ESA cat, pack its litter box also.

Your ESA’s First Aid Kit

After all the toys and other supplies, carrying your animal’s first aid kit  and ESA Letter with your self is important to avoid any unlikely accidents. Keep your animal’s veterinary certificate, vaccination records and the medicine that it usually takes, in the box. Still, if your pup feels unwell, try to find a veterinary doctor nearby to have an opinion.

Travelling with your dog could be an extremely exciting and memorable experience for you, especially if you are travelling by roads. Therefore, to make sure that it does not end up in any ‘doggie’ emergency, go well prepared and enjoy.
