Health Tip: Make Traveling Easier on Your Pet

(HealthDay News) -- Taking your dog or cat on a flight may be no cakewalk, depending on the differing requirements of the airlines and various destinations.

That's why it's best to research these things before you leave, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

To reduce travel-related stress for you and your pet, the CDC recommends:

  • Get your pet used to its carrier before the flight.
  • Secure flights with fewer connections and layovers.
  • If your pet is allowed in the cabin, check in as late as possible.
  • Walk your pet before leaving home and again before checking in.
  • Consult your veterinarian.
