Are you planning to visit or move to Hyderabad soon? Do you worry about who will take care of your pet after you relocate? Well, why not take your furry friend with you? Yes, it is possible and you will get to know-how here.
Let’s begin by understanding all the pre-requisites that you need to fulfill before you travel with your furry friend:
This is one of the foremost steps while deciding to get your pet relocated to a new location. It is essential to pick the right size of the crate because your pet is going to spend all the time inside the crate while they are in the process of changing locations. Therefore, the crate needs to have enough but not more than enough space for your pet.
Now, what is important to do is, measure your pet to get the right-sized crate. The method is easy. All you need to do is measure your pet properly. Here are a few guidelines on how that can be done.
Length of the pet – from the tip of the nose to the base/root of the tail,
Height of the pet – from the elbow joint to the ground,
Width of the pet – across shoulders/widest point and
Height of the pet – natural standing position from the top of the head to the floor.
Based on these dimensions and certain calculations, an appropriate crate is finalized for the pet’s flight. Make sure to add those extra 4 inches to the calculated height of the pet so that there is enough headspace and the pet is not cramped in the crate. Once the sizing is rightly done, it is time to pick and order the same. The cost of the crate is going to vary with the choice of the size, ranging between 5000-40000/- (INR), and must be IATA approved.
When it comes to the documentation of your pet during domestic pet transportation, it is a relief that you would not require things like a rabies anti-body or a microchip as mandatory requirement. But having said that, you will surely not want to leave behind the other vaccination certificates of your baby.
The medical records are still a must as they ensure the immunity and past health history of your pet. The medical record is also essential as it proves that your pet is not a carrier of any animal transmitted diseases and viruses, and is vaccinated against the same.
You would also be required to keep with you a fitness certificate for your pet. This certification can only be produced if you have a timely check-up of your pet.
There are three modes of transportation that can be utilized for transporting your pet from Delhi to Ahmedabad which are air, train, and road.
Now, the important thing to understand is that air transport is the most preferred and the most expensive among the all available modes. The reason is that it offers the minimum travel time for your pet along with all the safety check-up procedures done beforehand.
You can also travel with your pet from Delhi to Hyderabad via train. The advantage that you get to enjoy is that it is comparatively less expensive that air transport and you do not need to lock your pet in a crate for the duration of travel. However, traveling via a train includes long travel hours.
Traveling via road is not preferred while travelling from Delhi to Hyderabad as if involves love time of travel.
Long travel hours can have adverse effects on your furry friend’s health. Hence, you must try to use the mode of transport which includes the least travel hours.
