Whether you are travelling abroad or staying at home, pets often accompany their owners everywhere they go. They provide companionship, entertainment and unconditional love. In fact, according to the American Pet Products Association, nearly 80% of adults consider their animals to be part of the family. When choosing a destination for a trip, pets are just as important as children during the selection phase. Travelling with your pet requires preparation. The very first step is to research the laws regarding bringing pets into countries where you plan to visit. In addition to local regulations, it’s also important to have your animal checked by a veterinarian at least two weeks before departure. Let’s see below how one can travel with a pet.
You should think about size, weight and materials. It needs to be sturdy enough to protect your pet from the elements while preventing damage to your belongings. If travelling between flights, opt for an air-cushioned crate rather than a hard plastic kennel because this gives your pet more comfort and protection. Make sure that your carrier or crate has handles so that you can transport it in a taxi or other vehicle without assistance.
A cat? A dog? An aquarium? Your choice depends largely upon the number of days you intend to stay away. If you’ll be gone only a few days, choose something small that can easily nestle beneath your seat. On the other hand, if you’re planning to spend several months away, get yourself a larger container for your big pet.
