One of the biggest joys of having an animal companion is exploring the world together. Contemplating the vast landscape from a mountain peak, spending the day in a new city, or simply visiting friends are grand adventures with a pet by your side. Just like us, making sure basic needs are met and preparing for challenges are key to making the most finicky pets fun to hang out with on the road. These pet travel kits are great options to keep your focus on discovering new experiences—and enjoying every moment of the journey.

This handsome grey option has two insulated and water-resistant food carriers, holding up to 30 cups of food or treats (for a very good boy). A variety of zippered compartments, collapsible silicone food/water bowls, and a magnetic front pocket keep items neatly stored and easily accessible. It also features airline-friendly dimensions, a luggage sleeve, and detachable shoulder strap.

A blanket and plastic disc make this a nice gift idea and ideal to grab and go without searching for stuff to pack. The front flap of the bag unzips and folds down to become a feeding station with two collapsible silicone and dishwasher-safe bowls. The large food carrier bag is detachable and holds up to 3 pounds of food (about 12 cups), making it a good choice for smaller pets or shorter trips.

If your weekends are full of back-country trail-hiking and river-fording (or if you want it to appear that way), this handsome waterproof canvas bag is a must. It features ample food storage in two lined containers (enough for 30 cups), BPA-free silicone bowls, and room for your favorite towels and leashes. Available in Juniper Green or Midnight Blue with brass-finished hardware.

This kit has the basics from gauze to antiseptic to immediately care for your pet in the event of an accident. The best part is the manual explaining how to check vital signs and what to do in different scenarios, including choking, broken bones, and wounds. You can even open the kit while wearing gloves using the zipper extenders.

If you have a cat who loves to travel, congratulations! If not, having a portable litter box that folds up to a little bigger than a wallet can make trips more pleasant. Suitable for small and medium-sized pets, it is made out of nylon with a waterproof and washable PEVA lining. By adding a mat, it can even double as a bed.
