Start Sedating pets for travel

Sedating pets for travel

These common sense steps will help to ensure a safe trip for your pet when they cannot travel with you in the cabin.

Contrary to popular belief, pets aren’t crammed with luggage in a deep dark hole in the bottom of the plane.

This is the perfect opportunity to keep your pet in its carrier on your lap, turn it towards the window, and hug it tightly (if your pet allows for hugs) and stroke it through the carrier (assuming you are using a soft sided carrier which we highly recommend).

Keep your voice low and close to your pet while assuring it that everything will be ok.

Most of the major airlines are still accepting one pet per passenger at an average cost of $125.00 each way on domestic flights. You must make a reservation well in advance as only one or two pets per flight are allowed. Larger pets must be sent as checked luggage (accompanied) or as air cargo (larger pets or unaccompanied).
