What determines the cost of Burmese shipping

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

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 Burmese, 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 Burmese 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 Burmese Cat: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

The Burmese cat is known for its distinctive, sociable, and affectionate nature, making them excellent companions during travel. These felines thrive on interaction and could become anxious if left alone for prolonged periods. Understanding the Burmese's need for companionship is crucial when planning their transportation, as their emotional well-being is just as important as their physical safety. Compact and muscular, the Burmese possesses a surprising heft for their size, which could influence how they’re secured in transit.

Size and Care Requirements

Burmese cats are medium-sized, typically weighing between 6 to 12 pounds. Their short, fine coat is easy to maintain, requiring only occasional grooming. Despite their low-maintenance fur, they do appreciate a comfortable, warm environment. During transport, it's vital to provide a carrier that gives ample space for movement. Additionally, these cats may require periodic attention more than other breeds due to their sociable nature, so incorporating comfort breaks can be very beneficial to their overall transportation experience.

Health and Safety Protocols

Ensuring your Burmese cat is in good health before embarking on their journey is paramount. A thorough veterinary check-up, including up-to-date vaccinations and parasite control, is necessary to safeguard their health as well as the health of others. Furthermore, it is essential to adhere to safety measures during transportation, such as using secure, ventilated carriers and never leaving your pet unattended in a vehicle, especially in extreme temperatures.

How to prepare your Burmese 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

Prior to travel, gather your Burmese cat's medical records and ensure their vaccinations are current. This documentation may be required for airline travel or crossing state lines. Core vaccinations, such as those for rabies, feline calicivirus, and feline herpesvirus, are vital. Additionally, preventive treatments for fleas, ticks, and heartworm should be up-to-date to protect your pet during and after their journey.

Identification and Security

Secure identification is critical for the safety of your Burmese cat during travel. A well-fitted collar with an ID tag displaying your contact information, along with microchipping, provides a robust safety net should your pet manage to escape. Ensure all information is current and easily readable to facilitate a quick reunion if separated.

Travel Comforts for Burmese Cat

To ensure a stress-free journey for your Burmese cat, consider including a carrier that allows them to stand, turn, and lie down comfortably. Familiar items, such as their bedding, a favorite toy, or an article of your clothing, can help soothe them. Additionally, try to maintain your pet’s regular feeding schedule as closely as possible and provide access to clean water throughout the trip.

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 Burmese Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Travel can be stressful for Burmese cats, who thrive on routine and familiarity. Introducing your cat to their carrier well in advance of the journey, along with the use of feline pheromone sprays, can significantly reduce stress. Additionally, covering the carrier with a light blanket can create a calming, den-like environment during transport.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Avoid feeding your Burmese cat a large meal right before travel to prevent motion sickness. Small, light meals can be more easily tolerated. For long journeys, provide a portable litter solution, and ensure your pet has opportunities to use it in a safe and controlled environment.

Climate and Comfort

Keeping your Burmese cat comfortable means considering the vehicle's temperature. These cats prefer a warm environment, so avoid placing them in direct sunlight or near air conditioning vents. A climate-controlled setting is ideal to prevent overheating or excessive cold.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Burmese Cat

Acclimating to New Spaces

Once you’ve reached your destination, allow your Burmese cat to explore their new surroundings at their own pace, starting with one room, adding more as they become comfortable. Maintain the layout of their feeding, litter, and sleeping areas similar to their previous environment to aid in their adjustment.

Post-Travel Health Check

After traveling, monitor your Burmese cat for any signs of distress or illness, such as refusal to eat, lethargy, or unusual behavior. Schedule a follow-up visit with a vet to ensure they haven't contracted any travel-related health issues.

Maintaining Well-being

Keeping a consistent routine in terms of feeding, play, and cuddle times can significantly promote your Burmese cat's overall well-being in their new environment. This regularity brings a sense of security and comfort to them, helping them adjust swiftly and happily.
