Question: Does my pet get fed?

Emirates Animals Export Co,. Ltd

Answer: more information contact us
We do not recommend feeding your pet immediately prior to collection. This is to prevent any potential motion sickness that may incur from traveling in our vans or on board any flights. If your pet is boarding with us for an extended period (more than 24 hours) we will provide him/her with breakfasts and dinners. As most International flights depart in the morning, we feed pets the night before but not in the morning of the flight. This is to ensure your pet travels on an empty stomach to ensure no potential “mess” inside their traveling crate.

Question: What if my pet starves?

Emirates Animals Export Co,. Ltd

Answer: more information contact us
Dogs and Cats can go several days without food without any issues. Pets have different digestive systems and can last a very long time without food. As many flights require your pet to be without food for long periods of time, we make sure they are supplied with plenty of water which can be topped up from the outside of their travelling crate. The airlines do not allow food in crates as this can become loose and also can be a choking hazard.

Question: What if my pet goes to the toilet in his/her crate?

Emirates Animals Export Co,. Ltd

Answer: more information contact us
Along with your pets traveling crate, we supply him/her with a special ‘Sky Mat’. The Sky Mat is a stay dry absorbent, non- slip material. Should your pet urinate throughout the flight, moisture will sink to the bottom keeping the top dry and fresh. Special crystals in the matting draw odor away.

Question: Where on the aircraft does my pet travel?

Emirates Animals Export Co,. Ltd

Answer: more information contact us
Pets travel in the cargo hold section of an aircraft. The travelling crate is strapped down to a pallet to prevent any movement throughout the flight. The cargo hold section of the aircraft is pressurised and has air conditioning at the same temperature of the passenger cabin. No personnel on board have access to the cargo hold section of a commercial aircraft where your pet is kept for the duration of the flight from take-off to touch down. This is due to strict security reasons.

Question: Do Pet Carriers sedate my pet?

Emirates Animals Export Co,. Ltd

Answer: more information contact us
Under no circumstance does Pet Carriers partake in or recommend sedation. A sedated pet has greater difficulty regulating their own body temperature. On long journeys this can be potentially dangerous as the sedation can wear off mid-flight. The pet then becomes aware of his her surroundings with no recollection of the events beforehand. This can be counterproductive. If your pet is especially anxious or nervous, there are several natural remedies and sprays which can be used. Our crates are sprayed with a pheromone to help relax your pet and helps calm them during the flight making sure they feel safe and secure throughout the journey.

Question: What if my pet needs medication?

Emirates Animals Export Co,. Ltd

Answer: more information contact us
We are able to administer simple medication if needed prior to flight departure. If medication is needed frequently (every few hours) and your pet has a long journey, please speak to your vet for advice on slow release medication or double dosage.
