  • If you run out of dog treats or wish to get a toy for your pet, a few retail shops sell a variety of such items. Purchase dog biscuits at Ashland Hill at Terminal 3 or head to Farmers Market at Terminal 5.
  • To refill your bottle or dog’s bowl, use one of the multiple water bottle refill stations available throughout LAX and near several pet relief stations.
  • If your dog or cat is comfortable in their carrier, keep them in there—pets aren’t allowed off-leash except within a fenced LAX pet relief area.
