What determines the cost of Oriental Longhair shipping

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

Mode of transportation

ratingGround travel

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.

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 Oriental 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.

rating
Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Oriental 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 Oriental Longhair: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

The Oriental Longhair is a breed known for its elegance, intelligence, and affectionate nature. This breed's curious and sociable character can influence their transportation experience, as they are more likely to be interested in their surroundings and require mental stimulation. Their vocal nature means they may express their discomfort or curiosity more than other breeds, making it crucial to ensure a comfortable and calming travel environment.

Size and Care Requirements

Oriental Longhairs are medium-sized cats, typically weighing between 8 to 12 pounds, with slender bodies and long legs. Their fine, silky coats necessitate gentle grooming to prevent mats and tangles, especially before a journey to ensure their comfort. These cats thrive on attention and interaction, so incorporating breaks for play and companionship during transport can greatly enhance their wellbeing.

Health and Safety Protocols

Ensuring your Oriental Longhair is in good health prior to transport is paramount. A thorough veterinary check-up can help identify any issues that might be exacerbated by travel. Furthermore, ensuring your cat is up-to-date on vaccinations and parasite prevention is a must. Customizing the travel carrier with soft bedding and securing it safely in the vehicle will help prevent injuries and provide a sense of security for your feline friend.

How to prepare your Oriental 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

It's essential to have a copy of your Oriental Longhair's medical record, highlighting their vaccination history, any medical conditions, and prescribed medications. Rabies and FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia) vaccinations should be current, per travel regulations, to prevent disease spread and ensure your cat's health during and after the journey.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is crucial for the safety of your Oriental Longhair during transport. A sturdy collar with an ID tag displaying your contact information, along with microchipping, provides a robust security measure. These identification methods can be a lifeline in the unlikely event that your cat escapes or becomes lost during transit.

Travel Comforts for Oriental Longhair

To ensure a soothing journey for your Oriental Longhair, include familiar items in their travel kit, such as their favorite bedding, toys, and treats. These familiar items can provide a sense of comfort and normalcy in the shifting surroundings of travel. Additionally, a portable litter tray and accessible water can help maintain their routine and prevent distress.

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 Oriental Longhair Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Incorporating stress reduction methods can make a significant difference in the travel experience of an Oriental Longhair. Pheromone sprays and calming blankets mimic the natural calming signals cats give off, creating a reassuring environment. Playing soft music or providing a quiet, darkened carrier space can also help mitigate anxiety.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Adjusting feeding times to several hours before departure can help prevent travel sickness for your Oriental Longhair. Portioning meals into small, manageable quantities can also aid in digestion during the journey. Ensuring a familiar and accessible litter solution within the travel enclosure will help maintain hygiene and comfort.

Climate and Comfort

Maintaining a comfortable travel environment is essential, especially given the Oriental Longhair's delicate coat. Avoid extremes of hot or cold by using climate control within the vehicle and ensuring the travel container is well-ventilated yet shielded from direct sunlight or drafts. This creates a stable and comfortable environment for your cat throughout the journey.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Oriental Longhair

Acclimating to New Spaces

Once the journey is complete, give your Oriental Longhair time to adjust to their new surroundings at their own pace. Set up a quiet, secure area with their bed, litter box, food, and water to help them feel safe. Gradually introduce them to more areas of their new environment, ensuring they always have access to their safe space.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring your Oriental Longhair's health in the days following travel is crucial. Pay attention to their eating, drinking, and litter box habits; any deviation from their normal behavior could indicate stress or health issues. Consult your veterinarian if you notice any concerning signs, such as reduced appetite or lethargy.

Maintaining Well-being

Establishing a consistent routine quickly after arrival can contribute to your Oriental Longhair's overall well-being. Regular playtime, grooming sessions, and affection will reassure them of your presence and help them settle into their new home. Patience and attentiveness to their needs during this transition period can ensure a smooth adjustment for your beloved feline.
