Sedating a dog when traveling
Do you know the best place for your dog or cat in your car?
The safest way for your dog to travel in the car is in a crate that has been anchored to the vehicle using a seat belt or other secure means.
Never transport a pet in the back of an open pickup truck.
Stop frequently to allow your pet to exercise and eliminate.
You have two options: Either be sure your pet is securely harnessed so you can safely contain them outside their carrier while it's being x-rayed, or request a special secondary screening that won't require you to take them out of their carrier.
Car Carriers on Most cats aren't comfortable traveling in cars, so for their safety as well as yours, keep them in a carrier.
Even if you’re certain of your timing, you can get held up — in just 30 minutes, you could return to a 120 degree car and a pet suffering irreversible organ damage or death.
If you see a pet left inside a hot car take these steps to help them.
If transporting your pet by air is the only option, find out whether they can travel in the cabin with you.
Most airlines will allow you to take a cat or small dog in the cabin for an additional fee.
