What determines the cost of Havana Brown shipping

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

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.

rating
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.

rating
Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Havana Brown, 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Havana Brown 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 Havana Brown: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

Havana Browns, with their sleek chocolate coats and striking green eyes, are not just a treat for the eyes but also possess a distinct personality that can influence their transportation experience. Known for their intelligence and affectionate nature, these felines form strong bonds with their human companions, which can make the separation during transport challenging. However, their sociable and adaptable traits mean they can also cope well with new situations as long as they feel secure and cared for.

Additionally, their playful nature should be considered when planning transportation. Ensuring that their carrier has enough room for slight movement and includes a familiar toy can help keep them calm and entertained throughout the journey.

Size and Care Requirements

Havana Browns are medium-sized cats, typically weighing between 6 to 10 pounds. Their size makes them reasonably easy to transport, but their sleek, short coat requires regular grooming to keep it shiny and healthy. When organizing transport, it’s crucial to ensure their comfort, especially in temperature-controlled environments. Their short coats provide less insulation than those of long-haired breeds, making them slightly more susceptible to cold.

Their care requirements during transport should include access to clean water to stay hydrated and a small, easy-to-clean litter box within their carrier. It will maintain their hygiene and comfort during the journey.

Health and Safety Protocols

Prior to transportation, it's essential to conduct a thorough health check for your Havana Brown, ensuring they are fit for travel. This includes a full physical examination by a vet, certification of all current vaccinations, and a check for any signs of illness or distress.

Safety is paramount during transportation. Thus, using a well-ventilated, secure, and comfortable carrier that's escape-proof is crucial. Including a piece of the owner's clothing can also provide comfort and a sense of security for the Havana Brown, making the travel experience less stressful for them.

How to prepare your Havana Brown 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

Essential medical documents for transporting your Havana Brown include a current health certificate, proof of rabies vaccination, and records of all other vaccinations. Keeping these documents organized and easily accessible will ensure a smoother travel process, especially if crossing state lines or traveling by air. Planning ahead by scheduling a veterinary appointment well in advance of the trip is advisable to ensure all health requirements are met.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is crucial for the safe transport of your Havana Brown. A collar with ID tags that include your contact information is a basic requirement. However, for added security, consider microchipping your cat, as this permanent form of ID can be invaluable if your pet manages to escape the carrier.

Travel Comforts for Havana Brown

To ensure a stress-free journey for your Havana Brown, include familiar items in the travel kit, such as their favorite toy and bedding. These items carry the scent of home and can significantly reduce stress levels. Additionally, consider a soft-sided carrier for inside vehicle travel since it can be more comfortable and less intimidating for your cat.

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 Havana Brown Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Reducing stress for your Havana Brown during transit can include the use of cat pheromone sprays in the carrier, which mimic natural cat pheromones, helping them feel calm and secure. Playing soft music or recordings of your voice can also soothe and reassure them during the journey.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Maintain your Havana Brown's regular feeding schedule as much as possible during transport but avoid feeding right before departure to minimize the risk of motion sickness. Portable litter solutions, such as disposable litter boxes, are convenient for travel, allowing you to maintain hygiene with minimal fuss.

Climate and Comfort

Considering the Havana Brown's short coat, it’s important to maintain a comfortable temperature in the vehicle, avoiding extremes of heat and cold. A blanket can provide additional warmth if needed, while cracked windows can help ensure adequate ventilation during warmer weather.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Havana Brown

Acclimating to New Spaces

Upon arrival, give your Havana Brown time to acclimate to their new surroundings at their own pace. Set up a quiet, enclosed space with their familiar items, such as bedding and toys, and slowly introduce them to the rest of the home as they begin to feel more comfortable.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring your Havana Brown’s health after travel is essential. Look for signs of stress or illness, such as changes in appetite, behavior, or bathroom habits. Consider scheduling a post-travel check-up with a vet to ensure they haven’t contracted any travel-related health issues.

Maintaining Well-being

Keep your Havana Brown’s routine as consistent as possible in their new environment, including feeding, play, and cuddle times. This consistency helps them feel secure and promotes overall well-being after the stresses of travel.
