Transport of animals. Good advice from the veterinary clinic
Not only the people worry before a trip – animals also feel the bustle and for some it is a real stress .
In order that the animal can feel safe in the trip, he needs to create the most comfortable conditions.
Decide in advance what you will use to transport your pet container, carrier, or just the leash (this is for particularly large dogs). To do this you can simply visit the nearest pet store, where experienced specialists will tell you everything. You only need to choose the size and type of the desired product (soft, frame, tray with places to store products, drinking bowl, with an entrance from the top or front, folding, and so on).
Many owners prefer carrying wheels, in which the animal can freely stand and turn around – they are much more convenient in operation. For transportation of larger, aggressive dogs on the train it is better to buy a mesh cage that you can disassemble to convenient transportation condition, folded and set in a train compartment. Thus, as passers-by and dogs will feel more secure, and the owners themselves – more peaceful.
Some airlines have specific requirements to transport containers, pozabotitsya. If you are transporting an animal in a cage, ensure that they had the free flow of air and good ventilation. To avoid thermal shock, preferably in hot weather, do not transport animals.
If the animal does not tolerate moving, it swayed and even tears, it is best to consult a doctor who will prescribe your pet medications.
If your pet is not accustomed to traveling, try to prepare him for the trip for some time. To carry it is best to accustom since the childhood – the earlier, the better. Well, if this was not possible, 2-3 weeks before departure. First, just place the container in a room where the animal feels safe. Put your favorite rug or Mat familiar to him. If the animal is afraid, put in a container his favorite toy or something tasty. Give the animal time to learn, do not ask him too much at once.
Take care of feeding your pet on the road. If your cat or dog is used to the dry food, then the problems should arise – such feed is very convenient to travel. If you use natural food, then, in that case there are several options. For example, for 7-10 days to accustom the animal to at least konservirovannoy poop, or take a cooler bag or a thermos of chilled food, but remember – tainted cooked meat is much more dangerous than raw.
On the day of departure do not give your pet food. Water can drink, but not less than 2 hours before the trip. During the trip, do not feed and give drink to animals. After moving give water and feed your pet will be possible only after 2 hours.
If your dog is nervous before the trip, then she should give a sedative pill.
All dogs, other than decorative, are carried in a muzzle and on a leash. The muzzle also try to teach in advance, even if your dog is kind-hearted animal. The fact is that without him you just can not be allowed on the train, bus or plane. At stops a dog should walk.
Of course, most convenient to travel with a dog on the train in a separate compartment, especially in coupe purchased for the dog, you will not have to pay. If you don’t quite fit the bottom shelf. Try even when buying tickets to ensure comfortable conditions for a trip for yourself and your pet.
