Hidden Valley Animal Clinic - McMurray PA - Traveling and Pets

Before you decide to travel with your pet, please consider the following: will your pet be up to the trip? Some pets are not suited to travel because of temperament, illness, or physical impairment. Will your pet be allowed at your destination? Make sure to familiarize yourself with any pet-related restrictions or requirements of your hotel, airline or the state or country to where you're traveling.

The Humane Society of the United States recommends that you do not transport your pet by air unless absolutely necessary. According to the Air Transport Association, more than 5,000 animals are killed, injured, or lost on commercial flights each year. Our beloved pets face risks including excessively hot or cold temperatures, poor ventilation, scarcity of oxygen, and rough handling.

If you firmly believe your pet is okay to travel, and he is in good health and is up-to-date with vaccinations, please read the following articles and visit the following links to ensure that your trip is safe and enjoyable for both you and your companion animal.
