Your pet will need an original health certificate issued by a licensed and accredited veterinarian, issued within 10 days of travel. He/she will also need a signed rabies vaccination certificate. For international travel, the rabies vaccination often must be at least 30 days old but less than one year old. Depending upon the destination country, your pet’s trip may also require import permits, various annual vaccinations, reservation at a quarantine kennel, or other special documentation. It can take up to 6 weeks or more to accomplish all this so please be mindful of these restrictions
All airlines require your pet to travel in an approved, properly sized kennel. They MUST be able to stand up without touching the top of the carrier, sit down, and turn around comfortably in the carrier. When the pet is outside the carrier, they should not be taller or longer than the carrier. Overly large kennels are not allowed, either. Carriers for international flights must have adequate ventilation. We reserve the right to refuse to ship pets in inadequate carriers.
We work only with airlines that we know from experience are pet-friendly. Many of them move pets to and from the planes in temperature controlled vehicles to minimize your pet?s exposure to the elements. However, there are seasonal weather restrictions that may apply to any city. When it is very hot or cold, it is possible your pet may not be able to fly on the day you have chosen. Instead, they may have to travel when it is not necessarily convenient for you.
Some airlines will accept live animal shipments only from professional shippers. Some airlines and/or countries will not allow pets to travel with you as excess baggage. However, most of the airlines that restrict pets as excess baggage will allow you to ship your animals through their cargo office using a professional pet transport company.

All cats are required to be crated for the simple reason that they are more difficult to restrain and the chances of them escaping are considerably higher. When transporting dogs, we usually crate all dogs except when the owner is accompanying their dog, if the dog is too large for the available crate or if the dog is injured and crating is not possible. In these cases, we prefer that dogs wear a harness in order to be safely fastened and secured in our van. Dogs that show aggression towards people or other dogs will need to be crated in order to be transported.
