They are essential for travel and accommodation. Of course, we don’t forget the food, the pet booklet (because also dogs have an identity!), dog collar, leash, antiparasitics, and citronella spray. We inform our vet of the journey, and if needed we make a visit for a routine check. We may consult the vet in order to prepare a dog’s first aid kit.
