How to fly your pet safely?
You can transport your pets in three different ways when it comes to air traveling. First, you can take it with you in-cabin as carry-on luggage. Secondly, a pet can accompany its owner as luggage in cargo. The third option comes into play when you wish to let your pet travel alone as manifest cargo. The Fourth option is for us to fly your pet in First Class. The fifth option is flying in a private charter flight.
Most owners try their best to find a way to carry their pets as carry-on luggage in the cabin with them, but the airline restrictions, size, breed of the pet and recalcitrant pet import rules in the arrival country can often make this impossible. Nevertheless, if you do your research and find an airline that offers a cargo hold that is pet-friendly and climate-controlled, your pet will enjoy a comfortable journey in the flight.
Another important point to ensure while transporting your pet is to get them reservations on direct flights with no layovers. If you are going to transport your pet internationally, then make sure your airlines have climate-controlled layover lounges for pets where they can wait for the connecting flight. Make sure that the airlines you choose offer kennel facilities during any layover so that the pets can get water and food during the process.
What are the health risks involved while transporting a pet?
Elderly pets such as dogs and cats are allowed to travel, but you need to discuss with your vet as to how much stress can the pet of that age endure during travel. Pets are in risk of injury and hyperventilation if they are not trained to remain calm in a crate for 6-8 hours.
Breeds such as pugs and English bulldogs pose a higher risk during air travel as they are prone to impede their delicate respiratory systems in highly stressful conditions. The length of the trip, the pet’s health condition, age, and breed temperament has to be discussed with a veterinarian before travel to ensure pet safety.
