10 Tips for Traveling by Air with Pets


4. Visit your vet

The airline may not require your pet vaccination for domestic travel, but it’s still a smart idea to visit your vet before the trip.

Make sure that all the vaccinations are up to date and get a copy of the animal’s medical records to take along with you. You should also carry a first aid kit so you’ll be prepared if your pet gets sick.

Some airlines request a certificate of health, so again check the regulations and make sure you comply. Finally, get the name and number for a vet at your destination in case your pet gets ill.
