Pet Carriers to the United Kingdom

Professionals will ensure your pet is fit and ready to make the journey to the United Kingdom...

Pets can be transported by sea or air, on one of the many PETS-approved carriers. There is only a limited amount of space and owners must book in advance if they would like their pet to travel with them.

Pets entering the UK on airlines must normally be carried in the hold. However, guide dogs or other assistance dogs are allowed to travel in the cabin with their owner on certain approved routes. For those animals carried in the hold, they will have to travel in an approved container. It must be big enough for the animal to stand, sit and turn during the journey. The container must allow adequate ventilation. If the journey is longer than a few hours, food and drink may need to be supplied.
