Hi PetRelocation,

I'm going to be moving to New Zealand in a year to complete my studies and I want to bring my pet rabbit with me. Is there a way and (if there is) what do I have to do?

Thanks for your question -- unfortunately we don't have very promising news to share with you.

Hi PetRelocation,

I need help. I have no idea where to begin in getting my cat to my new home. I really just need specific advice on what airlines I can use that will fly straight to Aberdeen.

Dear PetRelocation,
 
We are wanting to take our ragdoll cat from Melbourne to Macau, and we're finding pet relocation costs ridiculous. Can we do this ourselves without it costing a fortune? We also need to make sure we have the right paperwork for bringing our cat from Melbourne, Australia to Macau.
 
Thanks,

Pet Travel to Australia: Bedding & Pet Crate Questions

Monday, May 4, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I've just learned that you can't have kitty litter inside the cat's travel crate during transportation. This concerns me greatly, as my cat has historically suffered from a urinary tract problem.

Are there exceptions? Are there absorbent fabrics that can be used as an alternative? Any suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Thursday, April 30, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I am moving to Japan from the U.S. and we have two cats. I was planning on sedating them, but after researching a little I realized it's harmful to sedate pets during air travel.

My female is extremely nervous and stressed going anywhere, so I'm not sure how I am going to get her through a 16 hour flight. Any advice would be appreciated!

Leaving and Returning to Australia with a Pet

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I adopted my dog in Australia. Can I go to France and then easily come back to Australia with him?

Thanks,

Thank you for your question. According to the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, once a pet leaves Australia they immediately lose their Australian health status. This doesn't mean your dog is banned from coming back, but it will require a bit of work on your part to meet all the health requirements to do so smoothly.

Please take a look a this...
