What do I need to know to move my pets to the Netherlands? Also, one of my dogs is pretty old and I have concerns about his health. Any information you can provide would be appreciated.
Thank you for submitting a question to us! We'd be happy to offer some advice.
We also suggest choosing a pet friendly airline (we often use Lufthansa, KLM and United for our clients' pet moves), and if your dogs don't spend much time in a travel crate, help them become acclimated to their airline-approved crate in the weeks before you move. For your reference, here are a few frequently asked pet travel questions
(and answers) that should shed light on the entire process.
In regards to your dog's age, please review this information containing tips for flying with older dogs
. It would be a good idea to discuss your concerns with a vet, of course, and there are other things to do and think about before your relocation. Be aware that we have flown many elderly dogs safely, but it's a decision you'll want to think carefully about and prepare for as best you can.
We hope this helps! Please contact u
s if you have more questions and think you'd like to hire some assistance with your move. Either way, good luck with everything.
