What determines the cost of Savannah shipping

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

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 Savannah, 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 Savannah 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 Savannah Cat: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

Known for their regal appearance and strikingly wild look, Savannah Cats carry traits that distinguish them as highly intelligent, curious, and energetic felines. This breed, born from the crossbreeding between domestic cats and the serval, a medium-sized, large-eared wild African cat, exhibits a fascinating blend of both wild and domestic behaviors. These characteristics can influence their transportation needs, as their high intelligence and curiosity may lead to escape attempts, while their playfulness and energy require ample mental stimulation during travel.

Size and Care Requirements

Savannah Cats are notable for their size, often considered one of the tallest cat breeds, with some individuals standing at up to 17 inches at the shoulder. This aspect, along with their active personality, necessitates a spacious and secure carrier for transportation, ensuring they have enough room to stretch and move around. Their care demands are also unique, requiring engagement with toys and activities for mental and physical stimulation during transit to prevent stress and boredom.

Health and Safety Protocols

Before embarking on any journey, ensuring your Savannah Cat's health and safety is paramount. A thorough health checkup is advisable to confirm they are fit for travel. It's also critical to ensure the carrier meets safety standards, offering enough ventilation and stability to prevent any harm during transportation. Attention should also be given to maintaining a comfortable temperature within the vehicle, as Savannah Cats can be sensitive to extreme heat or cold.

How to prepare your Savannah 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

Carrying an up-to-date record of your Savannah Cat's medical history and vaccinations is essential when preparing them for travel. Rabies, feline leukemia, and other routine vaccinations should be current, along with any specific health certificates required by the destination. This documentation will not only safeguard your pet's health but also ease the travel process, especially when crossing state lines or international borders.

Identification and Security

Proper identification is a critical aspect of your Savannah Cat's travel security. A sturdy collar with ID tags, including your contact information, and a microchip registered with current details, can significantly increase the chances of being reunited with your pet should they manage to escape during travel. The use of high-quality, escape-proof carriers further enhances their safety throughout the journey.

Travel Comforts for Savannah Cat

To make the journey less stressful for your Savannah Cat, include a travel kit equipped with familiar items. A favorite blanket, toy, or even a piece of your clothing can provide comfort and reassurance in the unfamiliar environment of a moving vehicle. Also, consider a portable litter box and access to water to meet their physiological needs during long trips.

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 Savannah Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Reducing stress during travel is vital for Savannah Cats. Familiarizing your pet with their carrier weeks before the trip, using pheromone sprays that mimic calming scents, and covering the carrier with a lightweight blanket to create a feeling of security are effective strategies. It's essential to maintain a calm demeanor, as pets often mirror their owner's emotions.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Travel can disrupt your Savannah Cat's regular feeding and litter box schedule. To mitigate this, try to maintain their normal feeding routine as closely as possible, avoiding heavy meals before the journey to prevent motion sickness. Portable, disposable litter boxes can serve as a practical solution for managing your cat's bathroom needs during stops.

Climate and Comfort

Ensuring the comfort of your Savannah Cat during travel means maintaining a vehicle environment that suits their needs. Given their sensitivity to temperature changes, it's important to regulate the car's climate, keeping it neither too hot nor too cold. Soft bedding in their carrier can also help cushion the ride, offering a cozy retreat.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Savannah Cat

Acclimating to New Spaces

Once you've reached your destination, giving your Savannah Cat time to adjust to their new surroundings is important. Start by allowing them to explore a small, safe area, gradually increasing their access to other parts of the home as they become more comfortable. Familiar scents and items from their travel kit can also help ease this transition.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitoring your Savannah Cat's health after the journey is crucial. Look for any signs of stress or discomfort, such as changes in eating habits or behavior, and consult a veterinarian if any concerns arise. This proactive approach will help ensure a smooth recovery from their travels and adjustment to their new environment.

Maintaining Well-being

Keeping your Savannah Cat's routine consistent in the new environment will help promote their overall well-being. Try to adhere to their familiar feeding, play, and rest schedules to provide a sense of normalcy. Continuous engagement and affection will also reassure your pet, reinforcing the bond between you and ensuring their happiness in their new home.
