Some useful tips for preparing your pet for travel
Don’t overfeed your pet on the morning of travel. A light breakfast is all that is needed.
Please ensure that your pet has some sort of bedding in its travel cage that will absorb moisture if they have a mishap. Puppy pads or newspaper are good to put in the bottom with a light blanket on top. (Our cages come with puppy pads)
Please ensure your pets bedding is free from soiling at the time of check in.
If you are going to put water in the water bowl, please ensure it is a minimal amount. This will minimise spillage it there is any turbulence during the flight. Also ensure you have absorbent bedding in the cage in case of spillage.
Take your dog for a good walk so it goes to the toilet prior to going into its travel crate. This will also help with it wanting to sleep in transit.
Please ensure your pets cage is labeled correctly with the consignees name, phone number, the destination airport and also the booking reference number on it.
