Helpful Tips for Flying with Pets

By Family Feature  
As many consider flying again, an online survey conducted by KRC Research of more than 1,000 pet owners in the United States found 85% of pet parents are likely to travel within the next year, with 65% saying they want to bring their pets along.

To help make travel a more seamless experience, Mars Petcare’s BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program offers these helpful tips for pet-friendly travel. For more information about making the world a more welcome place for pets, visit BetterCitiesforPets.com.

Pack a Pet-Friendly Kit

Keep your pet’s day-to-day needs in mind and pack a bag just for your pet. Make sure to include necessities like water containers, treats or pet food, leashes and collars, waste bags and a pet-friendly first aid kit. Having these items on hand can help you prepare for the unexpected. Also make sure your pet is microchipped prior to your trip to give you peace of mind.

Map It Out

An increasing number of airports are prioritizing pet-friendly amenities for passengers and their furry companions, like dog parks, relief areas and hydration stations for pets. Before booking your trip, research locations that include these types of offerings, like Nashville International Airport (BNA), which earned Mars Petcare’s Airport Certification through the company’s BETTER CITIES FOR PETS program, which aims to create more petfriendly places to allow for happier, healthier lives for both people and pets.

Practice Pet Safety

In order to keep your pet as safe and comfortable as possible, arrange proper accommodations for him or her ahead of time. If possible, try to coordinate direct flights when traveling with your pet to streamline logistics and help him or her feel more comfortable during travel. Your pet should be secured in his or her carrier while in transit, or on a leash when utilizing pet-friendly amenities.

Anticipate Your Pet’s Needs

A day full of travel might be overwhelming for your pet, so make sure to anticipate any needs that may arise when on the go. Potty breaks and stops for water are just as important when traveling as on any typical day, even outside of normal routines.
