Dog Choosing International Pet Shipping

Step 6: Travel Carrier

You want to be sure your pet is both comfortable and safe when traveling – meaning you will need a suitable carrier for flight. Proper cargo crates need to be sizable enough for your furry friend to sit, stand, turn around and lie down comfortably. 

Step 7: Food, Water, Medication

Food and water are necessities; Typically the TSA does not allow liquids – however, there are sometimes exceptions ( such as this case ). Animals can not be sedated and no medication can travel with them, so preparations will be necessary for your final destination.

Step 8: Port of Entry

Every country has its own set of requirements for pets prior to entering the area. Be aware that these regulations can change at any time. Most require both international and health certificates. Verify what your destination country seeks before traveling; the USDA has a great tool for searching these.
