What are the airlines requirements? Petswelcome has mostly American airline's information

Fun facts

Dogs can hear sounds that are too faint for us to hear, and also can hear noises at a much higher frequency than we can. Their hearing is so good that they probably rely more on sound than on sight to navigate their world

Emergency information sheet for travelling with your dogs

Airlines perturbed by proposed pet reporting rule; not qualified to inspect cargo -If government has its way, consumers may be forced to forego flying the pet-friendly skies.

To help an animal that will be flown, the Bach Flower remedies are extremely useful.

".oversedation is the most frequent cause of death of pets being transported by air."

What are the regulations for pet travel in other countries? The Petswelcome site has many countries' regulations. It's a good start. Also, contact the embassy of the country you are travelling in, and they may be of service.

Google Search & Sniff

Cats and dogs coming from Australia, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Hawaii and Singapore do not require quarantine, but do require certification and will be inspected for ticks on arrival.

Pets coming from the United States, or South Africa check the regulation.
