For a comfortable and secure journey
- Essentials - Pets must have a water bowl and bedding for absorption (these absorbent pads can be obtained when renting a flight kennel from BidAir Cargo PetLounge). They should be able to stand up with reasonable space between their head and the roof of the crate, they should also be able to comfortably turn around in their crate.
- Inoculation - Animals older than 3 months must be inoculated against Rabies, this should be done annually. There is a waiting period of 7 days (if they are older than 1 year) or 14 days (for 1st time inoculations or if they are between 3 & 12 months) after their rabies inoculation, prior to the pet travelling.Read More...
