What determines the cost of British Longhair shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your British Longhair.

ratingAir travel

Cost $$$

Time ⏱⏱⏱

Ground and air travel have different associated costs. Flying is typically the fastest option, but also the most expensive and taxing on your pet.

Travel distance

The further you need to transport your pet, the more it'll cost. If you're using ground transportation, you'll have to factor in fuel costs, lodging, meals on the road and wear-and-tear on your vehicle. These costs are applicable whether you drive the pet yourself or you hire a transporter through CitizenShipper. Airlines charge more for longer plane rides as well. This is due to the cost of fuel and the need compensate pilots and flight attendants.

Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your British Longhair, they’ll need to travel in the cargo hold if they’re over 20 pounds. You’ll also need to buy a USDA-approved crate, which can cost around $200. With ground transport, it’s easier for drivers to accommodate small pets.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your British Longhair is ensuring they’re healthy enough to travel. Most species require a vet-issued health certificate to cross state lines. This will cost $50 to $300. You’ll likely need to purchase some equipment too – such as a crate and travel supplies.

Transporting Your British Longhair: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

British Longhair cats are lauded for their calm and resilient nature, making them suitable companions for travel when necessary. This breed's demeanor is generally serene, showing patience and adaptability in varying situations. However, their strong bond with family members means they can sometimes become stressed when faced with unfamiliar environments or prolonged solitude. Understanding these characteristics can help ensure a smooth and anxiety-free transportation experience for your British Longhair.

Size and Care Requirements

British Longhairs are medium to large-sized felines, known for their plush and dense coats that require regular grooming to prevent matting and hairballs. During transportation, maintaining a comfortable temperature becomes essential to avoid overheating due to their thick fur. Care provisions should also include frequent stops for stretching and hydration breaks, ensuring their well-being is prioritized throughout the journey.

Health and Safety Protocols

Health and safety are paramount when traveling with British Longhair cats. A comprehensive health check, ensuring they are free from contagious diseases and up-to-date on vaccinations, is necessary before setting off. Employing secure, well-ventilated, and comfortable carriers can help in preventing accidents and escape attempts, making the journey safer for these precious felines.

How to prepare your British Longhair for transport

At CitizenShipper, we pride ourselves on making pet transportation a breeze. However, there are things you can do ahead of time to make your best friend’s trip safer and more comfortable.

Talk to your veterinarian

Your pet’s safety is number one – that’s why checking in with your vet before finalizing any travel plans is essential.

Can’t make it to the vet’s office in time? Conveniently video chat with a qualified veterinarian at FirstVet – one of our amazing partners.

Here are the questions you’ll want to ask your vet:

  • Is my pet healthy enough for transport?
  • Is my pet up to date on their vaccines?
  • Is my pet’s microchip still in place and scannable?

Medical Records and Vaccinations

Preparing medical records and ensuring vaccinations are current is crucial for seamless travel with a British Longhair. Rabies, feline leukemia, and standard FVRCP vaccines should be administered and documented. A recent health certificate from a veterinarian can also facilitate easier travel, especially when crossing state lines or requiring pet transport services.

Identification and Security

Effective identification methods are critical in the unlikely event that your British Longhair cat becomes separated from you. Secure, readable tags, embroidered collars, and updated microchip information provide a safety net for their swift recovery. Choosing a comfortable yet escape-proof harness can further enhance their security during stops.

Travel Comforts for British Longhair

Incorporating familiar items such as bedding, toys, or even clothing with your scent can significantly reduce stress levels in British Longhair cats during transportation. Also, a well-sized carrier that allows for movement yet feels cozy can create a safe haven for your cat, making the travel experience more pleasant.

Essential pet transport travel supplies include:

  • Food, bowls and fresh water
  • Collars and leashes
  • Waste bags
  • Medication
  • First-aid supplies
  • Any travel documents
  • A secure, USDA-approved travel crate

Traveling to a new place is exciting but stressful for your pet. Pack their favorite toys, a bed or a comfy blanket to help them enjoy their journey. Familiar items remind them of home and will soothe their anxiety.

Customized Travel Advice for British Longhair Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Minimizing stress for British Longhair cats during transport involves creating a serene environment within their carrier. Use of calming pheromone sprays and serene music can soothe anxieties, while covering the carrier with a light blanket can provide a sense of security by shielding them from overstimulating surroundings.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Maintaining a feeding schedule that resembles their normal routine helps in managing British Longhair's digestion and comfort. Portable litter solutions, like disposable trays, can manage their sanitary needs during travel breaks, ensuring a clean and hygienic environment throughout the journey.

Climate and Comfort

Regulating the climate is crucial when traveling with a British Longhair cat due to their dense fur. Ensuring the vehicle is neither too hot nor too cold and that the cat carrier has adequate ventilation can prevent discomfort and health issues.

Acclimating to New Spaces

Upon reaching the destination, provide your British Longhair cat with a quiet, secure space to explore and adjust at their own pace. Placing familiar objects around can help them feel more at home and reduce post-travel anxiety.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring your British Longhair’s behavior and appetite after travel is essential for spotting any signs of stress or health concerns early. A follow-up veterinary check-up can assure that your pet has not developed any travel-related issues and is adapting well to their new environment.

Maintaining Well-being

Keeping routines as consistent as possible is key to maintaining the well-being of your British Longhair cat in a new environment. Regular feeding times, play, and grooming can help in reinforcing a sense of normalcy and security, aiding in their overall adjustment and happiness.
