Kittens transportation

Cats do not like changing habitats, long-distance transportation is a real test for them, and for the fragile psyche of kittens – this is a traumatic event. But sometimes it is impossible to avoid this, and for such a case you need to remember some nuances and rules.

Health
So that the pet can normally move the transportation, the main thing is that he is healthy. If your kitten shows any signs of malaise, it must first be examined and cured, and only then transported.

But even if the pet is completely healthy, one should not forget about preventive procedures. You will need to drive away the external and internal parasites (fleas, ticks, worms), as well as vaccinate the kitten. At the same time, information about all procedures should be entered in the veterinary passport, and from the moment of vaccination to the trip must pass at least 30 days and no more than 11 months.

Organization of transportation
Try not to feed the kitten at least six hours before the trip to minimize the likelihood of vomiting from motion sickness. If the journey is not too long, for example, to the cottage by car, you can get by with convenient, easy, but durable carrying. If you plan a longer trip, for example, in a train, you need to take care of the tray and bowls for food and water.

On the plane, it is recommended that you carry the kitten in your hand luggage. However, you need to familiarize yourself with the requirements for transporting animals of a particular airline in advance, as they can vary significantly.

If you and your pet leave for a long time, do not change his diet too abruptly: first you need to feed him with the food he is used to, especially on the road. It will be convenient for you to take with you a certain amount of the usual full-feed dry food, such as PRO PLAN® Junior, so as not to expose the pet to excessive stress. If the kitten has relaxed stools after transportation, but the appetite, body temperature and activity remain, you can use a probiotic supplement, for example, PRO PLAN® Forti Flora®.

Documentation
To transport a kitten, you will need 2 documents:

International Veterinary Passport;
Veterinary certificate of form No. 1.
A veterinary passport is issued and issued to a kitten in any veterinary clinic at its first vaccination, and a veterinary certificate can only be obtained at a state clinic (animal disease control station) on the basis of a veterinary passport with marks on vaccinations and deworming (treatment for worms). The veterinary certificate is valid for 5 days from the date of issue until the start of transportation. When transporting a kitten abroad at a veterinary control at the airport, this certificate is replaced with an international veterinary certificate. So that you do not have any problems with entering another country, find out in advance what requirements for the importation of animals are made by the country whose border you are going to cross.
