4. Buy a Suitable Pet Carrier
No matter how large the furry member of your family is, there will be a suitable carrier or shipping crate available. Purchase one that has been approved by the USDA or a similar organization in your own country. Make sure that the carrier is large enough for your pet to stand and turn around in. Before setting off, allow your pet to spend some time in the carrier so that they have time to get used to it. Most animals consider crates to be a cozy cave more than a prison cell, so make it comfortable with familiar-scented blankets and a favorite toy and they will feel more at home.
