SHOESTRING EMPORIUM Plan ahead if you're shipping pets by air, the Palm Beach Veterinary Society advises. Make sure there will be a minimum of stops and transfers while your pet is enroute to its destination. Each year thousands of American travelers take their pets along when they travel in the United States or overseas. And the United States, as well, welcomes visitors from abroad who arrive with their pets or who have shipped them ahead. The PBVS says that the pet should be shipped in a sturdy crate with a leakproof bottom. The crate should contain a comfortable pad and a favorite toy and should be large enough for the pet to stand, lie down or turn around. The pet owner should give his animal time to become acquainted with the crate well in advance of the trip by placing him in the crate at home a few times before the trip. The crate should bear a label with the name and address of the owner clearly printed. If the animal's "call" name is included, the attendants will be able to talk to him and make him feel less lonesome. If the animal bites, that, too, should be indicated. In addition to tagging the crate, the owner should tag the pet with the destination and the owner's . name and address. That way, if the animal escapes, it will be easily identifiable. Here are some tips on preparing the pet for travel. The animal should be exercised and be fed a light meal six hours before shipment. No water should be given within two hours of shipping, except on a very hot day. A water dish should be provided, however, so that attendants can give the pet water at stopovers. The dish should be attached in such a way that the attendants can reach it without being bitten or the pet escaping. If the trip will require more than 24 hours, some food also should be provided. Dry food is best. However, if canned food is sent, a can opener and a dish should be provided. It is recommended that travelers contact their veterinarian, the state agriculture or health department or the country's nearest consulate or the embassy in Washington, D.C., for detailed requirements before traveling with a pet.
