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

Incredible Experiences: Dudley's Move to Australia

Tuesday, August 25, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

dudley"Beloved Sir Dudley"

We rescued our beloved Dudley when he was 7 years old.

He was an anxious Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel who had terrible separation anxiety. If he were ever left alone at home he would cry literally like a baby. None of this worried us, as we knew he was the perfect match for my daughter and I, who understood his fear of abandonment.

But, bringing him back from San Francisco to Melbourne, Australia seemed terrifying given we had to leave 6.5 months before he could come due to...

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,
 
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.

Sid is a pug, which seems to be a breed not accepted by most airlines. I do not want to put them in any kind of quarantine. I would like the most direct route for them and to cause them the least amount of stress.

Thanks,
Helena

Incredible Experiences: "Flying Zebras!"

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

luna & lornaThe export of two zebra filly foals from California to England was dogged with issues, not least the lack of communication with the seller, so much so that the first attempt was aborted although I had paid in full for the foals.

I then waited another 13 months for two more to become available to try again. It was only when British Airways provided PetRelocation as a possible business to support me that things finally happened.

All the staff I dealt with made me feel that they were as engaged and...
