Q. Where is My Pet during the flight?
A. The Most common question pet owners ask is:
Will my pet be safe on the flight?
When choosing the right airline, all of the cargo holding areas are insulated, climate controlled, pressurized and most of them even have slightly dimmed lights. This allows pets to travel in comfort, just as we do sitting above in the cabin. In fact Air Travel is much safer than long distance road transport.
Q. Are sedatives used in pet transportation?
A. Absolutely not. Sedatives suppress the respiratory system of the pets, which may cause disorientation. In fact, several airlines will not accept a dog or cat if they are sedated.
Even though some vets will test pets prior travel, latest studies show that sedatives can multiply in high altitudes by several times depending on each pet.
Q. What size travel crate will I need?
A. We recommend that the crate must be large enough for a pet to stand up in, turn around & completely lie down in a normal position. We will assist you with selecting the appropriate sized crate for your pet's travel. We will also recommend training tips to help your pet adjust to the crate, ensuring a safe and comfortable journey.
See our Travel Crates page for more info.
Please note: Your crate must not be the collapsible type.
Q. Can I arrange to fly on the same flight as my pet?
A. Most definitely. However, you will need to arrange for your personal airline tickets directly with the airline. Please note that some Airlines will not accept certain breeds, therefore your pet may need to travel with a different Airline. Also some countries require customs clearance at first port of entry therefore we may require arranging different flights. Our Pet Travel experts will be more than happy to assist you with flight schedules.
Q. What type of vaccinations should I give my pet?
A. Most countries require pets to have a current C4 Vaccination as well as a Rabies Vaccination given at least 21 days prior to departure.
Countries such as the UK require up to 7 months preparation prior to departure.
If you require assistance in regards to the regulation of any country, you can contact us & we will be happy to provide you with any information.
