Flying and cats
Hi, I am moving soon, and will need to fly my cat down to PE. (About 1.5 hour flight). Should I be giving her tranquelisers? She gets stressed very quickly, and cannot even consider putting her in a car for the trip. (She is 6 years old)
Thank you!

Hi Liezl
If you fly your cat it is best to go through a pet travel company who will do all the necessary tranquilising and provide the correct crate. You can start preparing for the flight a few days beforehand by giving Valerian, Rescue Remedy or other Bach Flower Remedies according to your vet's recommendations.
