Sedating cat air travel
I searched high and low for the proper size and shape cat carrier while adhering to the airline approved guidelines (thank you internet).
The carrier can’t be too tall (in order to fit under an airplane seat) or too wide.
And still, I laid awake the night before double and triple checking my list.
I wondered how she would handle the loud sounds and general stress of flying and wandering through a German airport. Would a hairless cat attract a lot of attention in the airport? Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep that night!
As part of the exam, your veterinarian may check for heartworm disease and prescribe heartworm preventative medication.
On the plane I had to keep the carrier tucked beneath the seat in front of me.
I could only see her if I bent down with my chin to my knees.
Both of these certificates can only be completed and signed by a federally accredited veterinarian.
If your veterinarian is not federally accredited, you will need to find an accredited veterinarian in your area, by contacting your USDA Area Office.
