Pet transport services typically organise safe, secure and comfortable pet transport for pets and animals travelling domestically, locally, and internationally. It is important to pet owners that their animals are comfortable and healthy during a journey.
Specialist pet transporters typically carry animals and pets in vehicles and vans that are fitted with purpose designed air and temperature control systems so that pets arrive at their destinations in a healthy condition. Additionally, where air travel is involved, pet transport service providers are able to plan for the entire journey from preparation for travel to door to door safe and comfortable transportation. Pet carriers providing international services can offer a complete service including airline bookings, health certifications, veterinary treatments and export/import permits. They may also arrange boarding kennels for international quarantine purposes for dog transport and cattery facilities. These carriers may also advise and attend to international protocols and treatments for any pets travelling between or to international locations.
Whether moving home, relocating, going on holidays or taking a pet on long or short distance journey, animal transport needs to be planned for in advance and can involve addressing complex requirements. For large pets and others such as cats and dogs, it may be necessary to obtain the services of a specialist pet transport provider. Some pet transport services may also recommend special pet carriers that may be purchased for transporting a pet locally or for safe travel during short distances. In addition to the need for safety when transporting a pet such as a dog or cat, or a pet that may be safely seated in a pet carrier, certain pets like birds and fish require additional attention due to their natures and needs. Pet carriers can advise on the best solutions for transporting these pets also, and may provide equipment and advice about making the journey as easy as possible on pet and pet owner.
