Baltimore pet Travel Tip: Pet Friendly Cruises

On transatlantic voyages aboard Cunard Cruise Line’s (www.cunard.com) “Queen Mary II,” both cats and dogs are allowed to travel with their owners. An on-board kennel master is in charge of pets’ regular feedings, walks, indoor playtime and clean-up. Upon arrival to the ship, pets receive complimentary goodie bags that include name tags, food dishes and toys. Pets are supplied with beds, blankets, gourmet food, snacks and either individual playtime or group playtime. Owners may visit pets throughout the day in two-hour blocks of time. Cunard recommends that passengers book their passage as far in advance as possible, as Cunard Cruise Line allows only 12 pets per voyage.

If you’re in the greater Baltimore area, your pet can always stay with us!

Baltimore Pet Travel Tip: Airline Policies

The first thing you need to do when flying with your dog or cat is to check the airline’s pet policies. Many airlines will accept your dog or cat, but each airline will differ in the services they offer pets. Will the airline allow your dog or cat to fly in the cabin with you and what are the restrictions? Does the airline accept pets as checked baggage? Will your pet need to travel in the cargo hold? Find answers to all your questions below. Click the down arrow next to the GO button to find cat and dog airline pet policies for over 160 airlines!

Leaving your Rabbit When You Travel

Here are some tips if you plan on leaving your rabbit at home when you travel:

Find a reliable friend who knows your rabbit or a pet sitter who knows rabbits to come once or twice a day. Have the person meet with you and your rabbit to go over care and expectations. Leave a list of instructions covering feeding and cleaning routines, signs of illness, and phone numbers of your veterinarian and other people who can give advice on rabbits (in case a question arises when your veterinarian is unavailable). Daily portions of vegetables and fruits can be fixed ahead and stored in ziploc bags in refrigerator drawers for up to a week (parsley, carrot chunk, broccoli, & celery store well but your rabbit should be accustomed to these before your trip).

Pet Travel Tip: Flying With a Cat

Most major airlines will accept cats as passengers. Cats under 15 lbs. can travel in the cabin. Larger cats or pairs of cats must be booked in cargo in larger traveling cat carriers and there are some seasonal restrictions. When booking your flight, book your cat as well and be sure to get a locator number associated with your seat for your cat. This is an important security precaution. It is better for your cat to fly a short distance for his first flight.
