|Only in case you didn't know, or no one told you, when you take them in the cabin with you, you have to go thru the detector, with them. You have to take them out of the carrier, and hold them, when you walk thru the detector thingy.
Show people that fly to shows all the time, put a harness and leash on them, as an extra precaution, when they walk thru the detector thingy, with them.
They are also chipped, and have tags on the harness, with their name, the owners name, vets name, and phone numbers. But these are seasoned show cats, that are used to travel and flying. They DO NOT sedate them.
They put wee wee pads in the carrier, under the blanket or towel, in case of accident. Do not feed them before hand, especially, if they are not used to flying. Do not open the carrier, while in route.
Carry a bottle of water, and a baggie of foodies, in case, of a layover or unforseen delay.
Do Not, open the carrier, if you have to give them a few crunchies to tide them over, put them thru the bars. Teach them to use the water bottle, such as you would see on a rabbit cage, and use that, if you are delayed and have to give them water. You teach them, by smearing a very little of wet food, on the neck of the bottle, so they lick it.
Make sure you know and understand, the airlines rules of flying with pets, the cats and the dogs.
The dogs should be chipped and tags on their collors.
Carry their health records with you, in your purse, in case you should need a vet in route, especially, their rabies certificates. I put their rabies tag, on their collors, when I travel, as well as their chip tags and other tags.
