There are quite a number of factors to take into account as the transportation of pets is regulated differently by the various countries around the world. These regulations include the type of customized animal crates required, health certificates, bookings for flights as well as requirements by the state veterinarian. It would be advisable to choose a company that is reputable for pet transportation to ensure a hassle-free transportation experience.
The transportation service for pets that you choose should make sure that your pet travels safely and securely. The chosen company has to ensure that the trip is planned efficiently so that the required number of “pet stops” needed may be carried out involving as little stress as possible. It is therefore imperative to choose a company that has many years of experience in the pet transportation and pet care industry. The company chosen should be manager run so that they offer a hands-on approach and can therefore offer guarantees that your pet will be afforded the most relaxed and secure travel experience available. They must ensure that they take whatever measures are required to provide your beloved pet with stress-free travel.
All companies who are involved in transportation of pets should be devoted to ensuring that each and every transportation turns out to be a personal and comfortable experience for your pets. Your pets should be offered plenty of attention and as many “bathroom breaks” as required as well as being exercised during the trip. The trip undertaken should be safe and fast to ensure the minimum stress to your pets which will allow all concern over your pets to be removed so that you may concentrate on your own plans for travel.
If it is your cat that is being transported by the pet transportation company, they will provide travel cages for cats. Although your cat may not be too keen at first to go into the travel cage, kitty will later be grateful that you secured her in one. This is because it will ensure that she is safe, secure and comfortable for the entirety of the trip.
Once you have completed sorting out the right transportation company and details for your cat, bear in mind that you will need to make additional arrangements at the end destination. It is important that you have done sufficient research prior to traveling so as to find out if your chosen hotel is pet-friendly and to check that this hotel is aware that you will be accompanied by your cat. This is important as although it may be advertised by the hotel chain that they allow animals, certain locations that are owner-run may have a different policy regarding animals. Also remember to confirm whether any extra charges will apply. The only downside of taking your pet along with you to a hotel, is that certain hotels might add an additional fee of fifty US dollars onto your bill.
To ensure that your pet is safe, it is customary to let them travel in a pet carrier that’s secure. These pet carriers for road travel may be bought from pet shops. Just bear in mind that should you be traveling internationally with your pet by air, there are quite a few requirements listed by airlines that need to be met before you will be allowed to travel.
