Pet relocation is often so stressful that pet owners frequently feel more anxious about their animals than they do about themselves. After all, we humans can care for ourselves, ask for directions, or file complaints, but we don’t know what our pets are going through “down in the cargo bay” or how they’ll be treated upon arrival. Much of this anxiety about pet travel can be laid to rest by preparing far in advance.
