Your pet will be overwhelmed with the sky-high travel, so you should get him used to traveling in some form before the flight. Take the pet on the bus and subway to get used to movement and the press of surrounding people.

Keep in mind that the combination of high altitudes and tranquilizers could prove fatal for your pet, so it’s best to find other ways to keep your pet calm during travel.
