• Bringing small animals on a plane can be a breeze

    2012-05-18

    Some travelers cannot part with their pets when they leave for vacation, so they find ways to bring them along on the trip. Fortunately, many airlines offer helpful policies that allow passengers to take well-behaved dogs, cats, and other small animals into the cabin. To assist the staff and ensure that the pet is safe, there are several steps travelers can take to have everything go smoothly.

    Many tourists prefer to book flights online, but if taking an animal along for the ride, it may be best to call the airline and inform them of the situation. Some may even require an additional seat be booked for the pet, according to USA Today.

    The critter's shots and health should all be up to date  as well, so a visit to the veterinarian before flying is key to keeping all animals and humans safe.

    According to Animal Planet, investing in a good crate for the dog, cat or small creature will help avoid escapes or whiny pets. Travelers can freeze water beforehand for easy transport and no spills, bring small toys and carry treats for good pet behavior while on the plane.
