Your pet must be medically fit to travel. If you are uncertain of our pets health, then a veterinary examination is recommended. At this time you can also discuss with your veterinarian any specific medical issues or threats that may exist in the area that you are travelling in. For example paraylsis tick, cane toads, heartworm and so on. Vaccinations must also be current.
To travel on an aircraft your pet must be a minimum of 8 weeks old (fully weaned). Puppies or kittens under 12 weeks of age require a statement from your veterinarian declaring that they are fit to travel.
Also, it is advisable to compile a list of veterinarians at your destination in the event of an emergency.
