Animal Transporters in the News
Airlines can charge an astronomical price to cover the cost of transporting your furry companions internationally or domestically. The fees associate with sedation, storing and the type of animal can leave a customer paying more to fly the animal than to fly themselves!
However, many travelers wouldn't be taking their furry friends along for the ride without cause. To make your pet feel more at home for the duration of the flight, there are a few things to consider.
Line the carrier with towels or bedding to decrease the chances of the animal getting sore during the flight. While the animals may be sedated, they will be unable to move around and that can lead to stiff joints, especially in older animals who are beginning to feel their age. Make sure the travel kennel is the appropriate size for the animal - it is better to get one that is slightly too large than too small. Discounts for kennels are available with a Dogkennels.com promotional code.
Ease the stress of traveling by allowing the pet to have one or two favorite toys along for the journey and don't wash them directly beforehand. Owners sometimes get nervous about people seeing their animal's dirty drool-covered chew toy, but when traveling, the scents of the home will assist in calming the animal.
All pets should have identification tags on them at all times. In case the worst occurs and a pet is misplaced during a transfer, tags on the animal will assist in tracking them. The tags should include the pet name, owner name, owner address and owner phone number. Consider putting an email address on the tag as well, if you check it regularly.
After considering these tips, look for discounts offered by airlines online to cut down on pet travel cost. An Animal Transporters promotion code can save a traveler $50 off of the cost of transporting a pet internationally.
