Incredible Experiences: Marley's Trip to California

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Marley"Great Move"

From the first phone call to when Marley was delivered, PetRelocation's service was great.

Marley was picked up from our vet's boarding facility and brought to the airport. When there was a flight delay we were quickly notified. When he landed, he was delivered to my new home safe and sound.

It took a couple days for him to settle in and eat like normal, but now he's very happy. He is acting like his old self and we're thrilled.

Thanks PetRelocation!!! Life is better with a cat.

The Tricky Business of Pet Travel to Australia

Thursday, June 25, 2015 by Pet Travel Center Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

 
I will be leaving Lebanon permanently for Australia in November, but I know that moving pets between these two countries is difficult. Given Australia's pet quarantine laws, what is the most streamlined way to move my cats? Is there a way to prevent them from having to stay in quarantine for months?

Thanks,
Rasha
 
Hi Rasha,
 
Thank you for your question! You'll need to follow the guidelines as outlined by the official Australia government website concerning pet travel to Australia...

Microchip & Rabies Rules for UK Pet Travel

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Dear PetRelocation,

I was reading the requirements for traveling to the UK, and it says the pet has to have been microchipped before the rabies vaccine. My cat is fully vaccinated but not microchipped.

I would get the microchip before the move, but would it make a difference that I got the chip after the rabies vaccine?

Thanks,

Danielle

 

Hi Danielle,

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this rule must be adhered to -- you must have the microchip implanted before you have the rabies vaccine administered...

Cat Travel vs. Dog Travel

Monday, June 15, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Any advice you can give me regarding my move? I moved a dog from Guatemala to the USA and it was not that difficult, but cats are a different ball game so any advice you have is welcomed.

Thanks,

5 Tips for Traveling Safely with Snub-Nosed Breeds

Tuesday, June 9, 2015 by Pet Travel News

pugPugs, English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Persian cats and other snub-nosed (or brachycephalic) pets require special care when it comes to air travel.

These breeds are more susceptible to heat stroke and breathing problems when exposed to stress or high temperatures because of their facial structure and hereditary respiratory issues, so travel is more risky for them.

This doesn't mean short-nosed pets can't fly safely, but planning a smooth trip requires a little extra preparation and attention....

Incredible Experiences: Marka & Vlast Move from Russia to Singapore

Monday, June 8, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

marka & vlast"Do Not Try to Do It Yourself"

Hey guys!

So I had to move from Moscow to Singapore in May 2015 and relocate my two pets -- a dog and a cat. They had to fly halfway around the world, go through a 30 day quarantine period (mandatory for all pets coming to Singapore), but they were finally delivered to me two days ago.

Having gone through the exercise, I am very glad I did not try to do it all myself and would strongly advise anyone against relocating their pets on their own.

Many thanks,
