Pet Travel Between the United States and England

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Dear PetRelocation,

I am planning to move with my dogs from England to Arizona in mid-September. My dogs have passports and they have recently been vaccinated against rabies. I am planning to have then tested for tapeworm before flying.

I would appreciate any advice you could give on any other medical preparation needed or any suggestions for the most animal-friendly airlines.

Warm Regards,
Natalie

Pet Travel Q&A: Flying Pets Unaccompanied Via Cargo

Thursday, August 20, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi Dear Expert,

I have two Yorkies that I am planning to move to Taiwan to my sister. I have done every inspection and requirements, but I am having a hard time finding an airline that would ship them.

They all require the owner to fly with them, but I cannot fly with them. My sister will be picking them up in Taiwan. I am wondering if is there any way that I can ship them to Taiwan without me going with them?

Thanks,

Min

Flea Prevention During Pet Travel

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Our cat has fleas and we cannot get rid of the them even though we've tried everything. We are moving in August or September from Italy to the United States and he will be flying into SFO.

Will the airline deny our cat due to his fleas if he still has them when we travel, or will SFO hold him with his fleas? He will be flying back as cargo through a pet shipper.

Thanks,

Allison

Incredible Experiences: Hercules Moves to Texas!

The PetRelocation team was great.

Hercules, my golden retriever, is a tall dog and requires the biggest crate made. Unfortunately a lot of airlines won't take that size crate anymore and others only take it on certain aircraft types. I could not find a way to get my dog back to Dallas from Puerto Rico after spending a few years there.

The PetRelocation team found a way to get him back for me. They made the entire process very stress free and painless. The fact that PetRelocation has...

I am relocating from Philadelphia to the UK and would like to know what I will need to do to get my animals home safely. I brought them both out here in 2010 and I would like to get them back as smoothly as possible.

Pet Travel Q&A: "Can My Dog Fly in the Cabin?"

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
 
I must have my dog Wesley traveling with me in the cabin, not in the hold. I need him to be with me, as I get panic attacks when flying and he helps enormously to calm me down. He is a very well behaved, non-aggressive dog, loved by everyone who knows him.
