Shipping Animals – Avoid These Mistakes

Shipping Animals – Avoid These Mistakes

DATE: 01/22/10

Shipping animals is a serious task that requires careful planning to make sure the process is carried out properly. For the well-being of your animal, it’s important that you avoid these common mistakes during shipping.

  • Choosing the wrong shipping company—Not all shipping companies are experienced in shipping animals. Some only ship dogs and cats, and others are new to the industry. You want to make sure you choose an experienced shipping company who will give your animals the extra attention they need to enjoy a safe, calm trip.
  • Waiting until the last minute—Animal shipping isn’t something you want to rush into. You need to take the time to find the right shipping company and to get your animal prepared for shipping.
  • Getting all paperwork on your animal—Before you can ship an animal, you need to get copies of  the animals health and vaccination records. It’s possible that your animal may require additional vaccinations before being accepted for shipping.
  • Not ensuring if your animal is fit for shipping—It’s always a good idea to visit your vet to get an expert opinion on your animal’s health and well-being. The vet will be able to determine if your pet is healthy enough (physically, mentally, and emotionally) for shipping.
