TRANSPORT CATS BY AIR

SUGGESTIONS:
 
Attach your easily visible contact information to the container securely, so that it will not be accidentally pulled off.Gina_PETSVENTURA
At least (3) three months prior to your departure, is recommended to research international requirements. Many countries require animals to be inoculated (2) two months prior to departure

Explore the container requirements for whichever airline you choose. In general, you will be required to have plastic kennel with holes on all four sides. It must also be large enough for your pet to be able to stand up and turn. In-cabin carriers must fit under the seat, and may count as part of your carry on limit

Have the animal shipping containers well before your flight date. This gives the cat time to acclimatize to the container. One way of speeding the acclimatization period is to feed your cat inside the cage. Also, choose a container large enough to hold a small litter box during transit. An in-cabin carrier will be smaller, so should always be lined with an absorbent and waterproof pad. Diapers are a good substitute!

Attach your easily visible contact information to the container securely, so that it will not be accidentally pulled off.



Make certain that your pet has passed its health inspection within (1) one month prior to departure. Some countries require that your pet visit a national government inspection center as well. You will need to find this out for the specific country that you're going to or coming from
CAT_PETSVENTURA 
Reconfirm with your airline 48 hours before departure that you will be bringing animals.

Reduce your cat's food to roughly half the usual the day before transport. Nevertheless, ensure that it has a sufficient water supply during the entire transit.
Arrive at the airport (3) three to four hours early in case there are any last-minute problems.

TIPS:
A leash and harness are a must!! When passing through checkpoints you will often need to remove the animal, so have the harness on and the lead ready during the check in process.

Help your pet get use to the harness by starting several weeks ahead of time.
Include several of your cat's favorite toys in the transport container - very few cats will say 'no' to catnip.
Remember to place a small litter box with high sides in the transit container.

WARNINGS:
Do not sedate your cat. The decreased air pressure in the airplane will magnify the effect of the drugs on your feline. This could harm or kill your cat.
Even the calmest pet can be frightened by strange sights smells and sounds - so keep your animal confined or leashed at all times.
