If you plan to take your pet with you on a trip and you're traveling by airplane, a lot of consideration and careful planning is needed. I'd like to talk specifically about those pet travel requirements that are particularly troublesome and can potentially ruin your trip.
There are two ways to travel with your pet by air; either bring your pet on board with you or check them as cargo, where they fly in the belly of the plane. Each airline has it's own set of rules for pets and if you don't familiarize yourself with the rules of your chosen airline it can be disastrous. (Note: this post applies to companion pets, not certified service animals)
