Preparing Your Pet for Travel

At Go Fetch Pet Transpost, we understand that preparing your small pet for travel can be a bit overwhelming. However, with the right guidance and a little preparation, your furry friend can have a stress-free and comfortable journey. Here are some essential tips to help you get your pet ready for their upcoming adventure:

1. Visit the Veterinarian:

Before embarking on any journey, it’s crucial to ensure your pet is in good health. Schedule a visit to your veterinarian to get a thorough check-up. This is also an opportunity to update vaccinations and obtain any necessary health certificates required for travel.

2. Acclimate to the Carrier:

If your pet isn’t used to being in a carrier, start acclimating them well in advance. Place treats, toys, and bedding inside the carrier to create a positive association. Gradually increase the time your pet spends in the carrier to help them feel comfortable and secure.

3. Familiarize with In-Cabin Environment:

Since our Flight Nannies accompany your pet in-cabin, it’s beneficial to expose your pet to the sights, sounds, and sensations they might experience during the flight. Practice short car rides or outings to get them accustomed to the movement and sounds.

4. Keep a Routine:

Pets thrive on routine, so try to maintain their feeding, playtime, and bathroom schedule as closely as possible. Familiarity can help reduce stress during travel.

5. Pack Essentials:

Pack a travel kit for your pet, including their favorite toys, blanket, food, treats, and any medications they may need. Having familiar items can provide comfort and a sense of security during the journey.

6. Stay Calm:

Pets can sense their owner’s emotions, so it’s important to stay calm and relaxed. Spend quality time with your pet leading up to the trip to reassure them and alleviate any anxiety they may feel.

7. Stay Hydrated and Comfortable:

Make sure your pet stays hydrated before the journey. Offer water up until the time of departure. Additionally, opt for a comfortable and well-ventilated carrier that allows your pet to move around comfortably.

8. Double-Check Documentation:

Ensure you have all the necessary travel documentation, including health certificates, vaccination records, and any permits required for your destination. Our team can guide you through the documentation process to ensure a smooth travel experience.

9. Pre-Flight Exercise:

Allow your pet to burn off excess energy with a brisk walk or play session before the flight. This can help them feel more relaxed during the journey.
