READ:  page # 12  Our Testimonials   VERY  Enlightening

ARRIVING AT AIRLINE CARGO CHARGES:

MOST airlines base their charges upon volume or dimensional weight.  This is arrived at by using the MAXIMUM outside 3 dimensions.  United Airlines base their

charges on ACTUAL weight of each pet AND kennel   It is VERY important to have exact   measurements.  NO guessing !   One inch can make the difference of many dollars.

Some pet shippers will have you believe some airlines are MORE pet safe, MORE pet friendly....  This is NOT true.  ALL airlines that accept pets are equally pet safe and friendly.  Some airlines give kickbacks to pet shippers who promote their airlines.  The problem sometimes exist with the cargo handlers and ground crews.. These people service ALL the airlines.  Many come from countries who are NOT so pet friendly.  They often do NOT understand our love of pets, so they do NOT handle with the care they should !

Do NOT misunderstand the following ...... Some airlines such as  American have unrealistic policies as to embargos, especially in winter and summer.  Depending upon outside temperatures.  Delta seems to be quirkey at ALL times.  United has the most realistic approach.  None of the International carriers have these embargo problems.  ALL of the planes are pressurized where the pets are carried. Also, same temperature as in the cabin.  The problems some carriers have has to do ONLY with outside temps.

VERY  URGENT  At ALL Times: For International Travel, you MUST use the APHIS 7001 International Health cert, AND, endorsed by the USDA.... This, NO matter what your Veterinarian or even the USDA itself tells you..... We will NOT accept pet for international travel without this form. To Canada, is an exception.  No USDA endorsement by USDA is required....

Please read ALL of our pages.  We have VERY important info regarding kennel construction; health of pets; how shipping charges are arrived at; how to save money;
how some pet shippers rip you off; the truth about ipata; etc
