Consultation and Travel Planning

Assessing Your Pet's Unique Needs

Our team will also listen to any special instructions or concerns you may have, ensuring a personalised travel experience.

Pre-Transport Preparation

Documentation Assistance and Vaccination Review

International pet travel requires various forms and certificates. Our team guides you through the paperwork, helping with health certificates, import permits, and any other documentation necessary. We also verify your pet’s vaccination history, making sure all health requirements are met before departure.

Pre-Travel Pet Health Check

A thorough health check is essential before your pet travels. We assist in coordinating this with your veterinarian, ensuring your pet is fit for transport. This checkup confirms your pet’s readiness and identifies any last-minute health issues that may require attention.

Transportation Day

Secure Pickup and Drop-off Services

On travel day, our handlers collect your pet safely and securely, minimising stress. Whether picking up from home or a specified location, we ensure that the journey starts smoothly. Drop-off at the destination is also coordinated to match your schedule and the needs of your pet.

Ensuring Animal Welfare and Safety in Transit

DEFRA Compliance and Safety Standards

We strictly adhere to DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) regulations to ensure animal welfare and safety during transportation. Our team is thoroughly trained to follow these guidelines, ensuring that pets travel comfortably in hygienic conditions. 

We regularly inspect our facilities and vehicles to maintain compliance, and our handlers are well-versed in the latest standards to provide the best care.

Useful Travel Tips for Pet Owners in Manchester

At Pets Lets Travel, we believe that a well-prepared pet and owner make for a smoother journey. To help you plan, here are some essential tips for a stress-free trip.

Preparing Your Pet for Travel

Getting Your Pet Familiar with the Carrier

Getting your pet accustomed to its carrier or crate is crucial. Allow your pet to explore the carrier several days before travel, turning it into a safe, familiar space. Line the inside with their favourite blanket or a piece of clothing with your scent to offer comfort. Gradually increase the time your pet spends in the carrier while reinforcing positive behaviour.

Health Check and Vaccination Updates

Before travel, ensure your pet’s health is up to date with a veterinary check-up. Vaccinations, flea treatments, and deworming should be current, and some destinations may have specific health requirements. Obtain a health certificate or travel documentation from your vet if needed, confirming that your pet is fit for the journey.

Choosing the Right Travel Crate or Carrier

Airline-Approved Crates for Safe Air Travel

If flying, ensure your crate or carrier complies with airline regulations. It should be spacious enough for your pet to stand, turn, and lie comfortably. The crate should have proper ventilation and a secure locking mechanism. Attach a label with your pet’s name, your contact information, and feeding instructions.


Comfort and Security Considerations

For any mode of travel, comfort and security are vital. Ensure your pet is not hungry or overly full before the trip, and bring their regular food and a favourite toy or blanket. The carrier should be sturdy, leak-proof, and properly secured. Provide familiar smells or calming aids if needed to reduce anxiety.

At Pets Lets Travel, we incorporate these practices into every journey, ensuring your pet receives the best care and arrives safely at its destination. We understand that each pet is unique, and we’re committed to providing personalised transport that meets their needs, making travel as stress-free as possible.
