[Extract] People keep a very broad spectrum of animal species as pets; not only the usual companion animals, such as dogs, cats and birds, but also less common mammal species, as well as reptiles, amphibia, fish and arthropods. People do travel with their pets. The size and weight of pets span a large range, from the small penny tortoises, which children may be tempted to carry in their pockets, to the pony, whose transport by air is a major logistic exercise. Even for most of the common domestic pets, such as cats and dogs, the form of transport used and the problems which may arise can vary considerably. None-the-less, traveling with pets can be a rewarding and relaxing experience. It is important that simple advice is given to travelers, who wish to take their pets, in order to assist in making the journey less stressful for both the owners and the pets. Travelers should be advised to consult their veterinarians well before travel.
