Please see below for some common questions and answers, which we are sure will assist you.
Unlike other companies who transport pets by fllghts, our handlers accompany your pet during the entire journey. We collect from your home (if in the UK), and travel with your pet until delivery.
If you require your pet to travel to the UK, our handlers can travel to your pet and collect and transport back to the UK with them.
The benefits to your pet of being accompanied are endless.
Q. Won't my pet/s be cold in an aeroplane?
A. Unlike what we think of aeroplanes with pet/s, the compartments are temperature controlled and pressurised. Not all airlines accept pets due to the conditions that they have to ensure in order to meet welfare needs.
Q. Isn't driving better for pets than flying?
A. Sometimes flying is the only option due to distance. Getting a pet to the destination in a more timely manner is always much better for them. For example, a driving journey that would take 3 days means that the pet/s would be in a vehicle the majority of the time. In comparison, a flight may only be 12 hours. The less time pets have travelling means the happier they are at the end.
Q. Will my pet have access to water?
A. Yes. Fresh clean water will be available to them at all times.
Q. Can they travel with their favourite blanket?
A. Absolutely they can, in fact we recommend this.
Q. Can I send some food?
A. Yes you can and this will travel with them.
Q. My pet is on regular medication, will they receive this?
A. Yes they will, although it needs to be prescribed by a vet with instructions from a vet on their letter headed paper.
Q. Where can I find information on what requirements are needed for a pet passport and other paperwork and health requirements?
A. You can visit the DEFRA website for information on requirements for your pet travelling.
Q. Will my pet need to be microchipped?
A. Yes. All pets travelling require a microchip and must be registered in your details. Please remember to keep this up to date.
Q. Does my pet need a rabies vaccination?
A. Yes. Some countries also also require an additional rabies blood test to be performed prior to travel. This blood test can take up to 3 months so it's very important to contact your vet as soon as you realise that you're wanting to travel.
Q. Do I need any other paperwork?
A. Yes sometimes you do. You will need a 'fir to fly' health certificate within 96 hours of the departure flight and dogs will need to have Tapeworm treatment 24-120 hours before arrival into the country (please remember to take time zones into account). There may also be import and export paperwork that needs to be completed.
Q. I'm buying a pet, or adopting a pet from a rescue, and my pet is coming from abroad, do I need to register it anywhere?
A. Yes you do. As you are not the current owner your pet will need to be registered with TRACES, but, don't worry, we can assist you with this as we are TRACES registered.
Q. Can you assist me with what I need to do?
A. Yes of course we can. We are here to help you and will always do what we can to help you.
Q. Can you assist with the vet requirements in order for my pet to travel?
A. We can assist with vet requirements that are needed just before the travel. One of our handlers can collect your pet and visit the vet for administration of Tapeworm treatment and flea treatment. Our handlers will ensure that paperwork is signed by the vet.
Q. Can you assist with a vet doing a third country health certificate in order to exit the UK?
A. Yes absolutely we can. We can complete the required paperwork and have the certificate dispatched to our vet in order to be verified.
