We recommend that you start every journey with a discussion with your Veterinarian...
Especially for Senior Pets or Very Young or Teacup sized - Pets. Ensure they are healthy enough to withstand the journey or let us know any special needs for our planning.
Crates must be properly sized and comply with the US Animal Welfare Act & the IATA Live Animal Regulations (LAR). Check out our guide below!
Place your pets' crate in the family room or other open place. Remove the door for acclimation-doors are scary!
Place their bedding, all their treats, toys and feed bowl in the crate. Make sure only FUN and GOOD things happen inside the crate
Use a pheromone collar or spray for anxiety-they really work! Sleep in an old shirt prior to travel and use it for the absorbent bedding to keep your scent near.
(No toys or treats allowed when flying.)
Pets travel best on an empty stomach, to prevent motion sickness. Feed them well the day prior to transport and ensure they have water throughout their journey.
Use a large water bowl / tape a water bottle to the crate
Your pet won't eat much while traveling (they'll be offered food at overnight stops) and they will arrive home a bit dehydrated if they fly (just like humans because of the pressurization of the aircraft).
Water them well and give them a few days to eat, drink and rest.
