Sedating dogs on airplanes
A good place to start is the website for the embassy of the country you are visiting.
If your flight is in the morning or the early afternoon, do not feed your dog her morning meal.
Pick up her water two hours before you leave for the airport.
Just before you leave, take her for a long walk, keeping in mind that you will not be offering her water at the end of it.
There is a risk, however, that an airline agent will object to your non-complying carrier.
A carrier must be made of water-repellant material (in case of accidents), it must have padding under your pet, and it must have at least two large ventilation panels.
Please note that very young puppies are not permitted to travel by plane: Nearly all U. airlines, and most international airlines, require that your dog be at least 8 weeks old.If you make your reservation on-line, call and add your dog to your reservation over the phone.
