Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some Questions we are frequently asked by our clients. Please feel free to contact us directly if need be.

Is airline travel safe for my pet?

Air travel is exceptionally safe for pets that are healthy and deemed by their veterinarian to be fit-to-fly. Data from the U.S Department of Transportation show that of the 506,994 pets transported on US airliners in 2017, there were sadly 24 fatalities. While each tragic loss should ideally never occur, these figures represent an extremely low risk of less than 1 in 10,000 animals dying in transit.

Should I sedate my pet for air travel?

Sedation is dangerous for any animal traveling by air, due to the increased effects at altitude. The American Veterinary Medical Association recommends pet animals are not tranquilized for air travel because it can increase the risk of heart and respiratory problems. Some airlines will require you to declare that your pet has not been sedated prior to travel.

What are the risks of air travel for snub-nosed pets?

There are increased risks with transporting any brachycephalic (snub-nosed) breeds, such as Pugs, French Bulldogs, Boxers, and Persian cats due to their respiratory problems. This condition makes them highly susceptible to heat-related issues traveling to and from warm climates. They also have a higher sensitivity to air quality changes while going in the cargo hold. Because their mortality rates are significantly higher, most airlines do not accept them for travel.

Is there a certain time of year that is better to transport my pet?

Most airlines have temperature policies to ensure your pet travels when conditions are safest. All pets, especially snub-nosed pets, travel better when temperatures are at or below 24℃ (75℉). However, we understand that this is not always feasible in some climates. Some precautions Global Pet Relocation takes is transporting your pet in the early morning or late evening when the temperatures are lower.

What pre and post travel tips do you recommend?

  • Acclimate your pet to their sky kennel several weeks before the trip. The advantage of this approach is to help minimize any stress or anxiety your pet may feel on the day of travel.
  • Take your pet to your veterinarian ten days before travel for a clean bill of health.
  • Apply lavender oil from his head down, which has a calming effect without the adverse side effects of sedation is also helpful.
  • Confine your pet to one room or area of your house several days after arrival with his toys and familiar bedding.
  • Avoiding over-feeding, exercise, and rapid water intake when he arrives home is essential because it can lead to tummy upsets and bloat, especially in deep-chested dog breeds.
  • Update your pet’s microchip record with your latest contact details to help reunite you if they wander from your new home

What size and type of crate should I get?

We call crates “Sky Kennels” which we think is a little more pet-friendly than “crate”. If you move your pet with Global Pet Relocation then we will provide the sky kennel for you. If you are going to purchase your own sky kennel then we recommend purchasing a Vari Kennel, which are airline compliant for both domestic and international travel. These carriers are secure, hard plastic, and non-collapsible, with air holes on all four sides and bolts and wing nuts that secure the top and bottom half together. These can usually be purchased at your local pet store or bought online. All dogs should be measured when standing from the floor to the very top of their head, and from the tip of their nose to the base of their tail, to determine the best fit. All airlines require that your pet have at least 2-3″ of room between the top of their head to the top of the sky kennel and at least 3-4″ of room between their rump to the back of the sky kennel.
