  • Preparing your pet for international travel

    We get a lot of emails regarding preparing a pet for a long flight, mostly in the cargo hold. Give your pet a light meal no sooner than 2 hours before leaving for the airport. Take an extra long walk just prior to leaving, and a short one at the airport. A small drink before checking in, and that should do it. If you are giving your pet a herbal ********** to relax, wrap it in a treat and give it to them prior to putting them in the crate.

            The real challenge here is your pet getting ready to travel long flights at a different pressure. Even some humans feel weird while on an airplane and your pet would be no different.

            And if you are traveling a long flight, the separation can cause some anxiety over your dog.

            I remember when I had a 3 hour flight where I brought my dog along with me. He was not allowed in the cabin so we had to resort to leave him at the luggage section. He was crying like anything. Maybe pay a dog whisperer first.

              I am traveling from Mongolia to Colorado and will have first a 5 hour flight, then a 14 hour lay-over in Seoul ( where I am not sure if I will be able to check on her or if Korean Airlines will take care of her the whole time), a 10 hour flight then 5 hours in seattle where I will be claiming my dog and going thru customs and then re-checking her for our last 3 hour flight.

              Any helpful suggests for such long flights and lay-over or if anyone has transferred in Seoul any info would be great. thanks, Snuggles Mom
