Tranquilizing Your Cat, Dog and Other Pets for Shipping or Air Travel
Animailers will not ship pets that have been tranquilized.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), transporting sedated pets by air is dangerous and potentially fatal. Tranquilizing increases the risk of heart and respiratory problems. You can find more medical information for traveling with your pets at the AMVA’s Traveling with Your Pet FAQ.
