Tips for domestic travel for dog and cats

Moving dogs and cats is not as traumatic as you may think, as long as a few simple things are done in advance:

  • Dogs and cats must be at least eight (8) weeks old before travelling by air, and in good health.
  • Do not feed your pet on the day of travel they will travel better on an empty stomach.
  • Cats are very sensitive and will know something different is happening - their instincts will tell them to hide. Therefore, on the day of travel keep your cat confined inside the house, in a safe area, where they will not be able to escape prior to pick up and travel to the airport.

We do not recommend sedation, as this can often do more harm than good. We have found that when dogs and cats have been sedated, they can become very disoriented and take longer to settle into their new environment.

A full range of IATA (International Air Transport Association) approved travel crates are available for purchase as part of our complete service. We can also custom build your travel crate to IATA specifications.

The travel crate must be big enough to allow the dog or cat to stand and turn around. Please see our section on Travel Crates and Preparing for more information.

Your pet's travel crate will be fitted with soft and absorbent travel bedding for extra comfort and water containers inside the door with a funnel outside the door allowing for your pet to be watered on route after the travel crate is sealed.

We endeavour to book directs flights whenever possible and most destinations can be achieved on the same day (Door to door service)
Alternatively, we do airport to airport (Pickup and delivery to and from airports), depending on your own requirements. /more
