After you pet is given sufficient time to get used to the travel crate at home, you need to prepare the travel crate for pet for the day of the flight. Preparing the crate correctly is not easy. Read some tips below to help you do that.

 

1. Have all the labels ready and correctly printed. These should have been provided to you by the company or store from whom you bought the travel crate.

 

2. Put the sticker which says “Live Animal” on the three sides of the crate with the arrow pointing up. The stickers will typically be of a bright color like orange.

 

3. Stick the sticker with all the pertinent details of your pet along with the airway bill number and the routing information. It should have the name and contact number of the consignee. This label should go on top of the crate.

 

4. Put a sticker with the name of your pet in the front above the grill/door.

 

5. Tie a tag with all the pet details on the grill/door of the crate.

 

6. Put a bowl of water inside the crate and securely attach it.

 

7. Attach a funnel outside the grill/door to enable the airline staff to replenish water in the bowl inside.

 

8. Put any type of absorbent material at the bottom of the crate. You can use foam, old blankets or even newspaper to do so. Avoid using litter as this is not allowed by most airlines.

 

9. Secure the crate with plastic zip ties on each side. Attach a zip tie to the crate grill/door.

 

10. You can also attach a plastic bag with one meal for your pet, attach it on the top of the crate. This can be given by the airline staff in case of a long delay or a lay over.

 

11. You can attach a plastic bag with a leash for your pet if you desire, this should also go on the outside.

 

12. In case your pet requires medication during the flight, put the medication in a clear plastic bag and mark it properly with the name of the medication and the time at which it has to be given to your pet.

 

Follow the above given tips to be airline compliant and make the whole process of relocation of your pet that much easier. Your pet will reach the destination healthy and stress free.
