Your plan to go for a long vacation will land nowhere if you have no idea about what to do with your pet. For so long, you cannot leave it under the observation of the professionals or in a dog care centre. The same happens to your pet cat. They will crave to have your company and so the best option is to take your pet with you when you are going outside.

But these pets are not so friendly with traveling especially if they have been nowhere else except the dog parks as outdoor trips. And here comes the need of good pet transport in Australia. This service will help you carry your pet along with you in a safe and easy way.

Before you think to arrange the facilities of pet transport, we can provide you with some tips that will help your pet travel at ease always. Have a look and take care of your pet while you are taking it out.

How to make your pet ready for travel?

1. Make the dog or cat used to the carrier: When you are traveling with your pet, make sure that your pet is comfortable with its carrier. You often go out for long drive, take your pet with you in the carrier and thus it will adjust itself to stay with the carrier. If you ignore this matter, it will be impossible almost to travel with your pet in flights.

2. Now reserve your seat: As your pet cat or dog is quite used to its carrier, you can book the seats in the fights with the facility of keeping your pet under you seat. These seats are limited and so you need to reserve them first. Some months before you start, keep your tickets ready and enjoy a safe journey.

3. Difference of cost: Prices may differ from one airline to other though the difference is negligible and depends on the facilities provided to the pet owners. For traveling in the flights with your pet, you must show the report of your dog’s or feline’s good health from a recognized vet. The authorities will never allow any risk of their lives while traveling.

4. Empty stomach is always recommendable: Your pet is always recommended to travel in empty stomach and the carrier is suggested to leave without food or water. If the food items or water is in the carrier, the pet may end up sitting in the split water or food. Keep some food ready in case the flight is delayed and your pet gets hungry. If your pet has motion sickness, give it the medicine as prescribed by your vet.
