What determines the cost of Sphynx shipping

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

Mode of transportation

Time ⏱⏱

ratingAir travel

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 Sphynx, 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 Sphynx 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 Sphynx Cat: Feline Friends on the Move

Breed Characteristics

Sphynx Cats, renowned for their distinctive appearance, showcase a unique set of characteristics that require consideration during transportation. Their defining trait, a lack of fur, means Sphynx Cats can become cold easily and may need additional warmth. Energetic and affectionate, these cats relish attention and may experience anxiety if isolated for extended periods. Understanding these personality traits and physical needs is crucial for ensuring a comfortable journey for your Sphynx.

Size and Care Requirements

Sphynx Cats are of medium size, but their lack of fur demands extra care, particularly in differing climates. During transport, maintaining an appropriate temperature is essential to prevent them from becoming too cold or overheated. Their skin also requires regular cleaning to remove oil buildup, a task that may need to be managed during longer trips. Owners should prepare for these needs to ensure the Sphynx's comfort and health.

Health and Safety Protocols

Prior to transportation, it's vital for Sphynx Cats to undergo a health check to certify fitness for travel. Documenting their health status, including any conditions that might need management en route, is critical. Additionally, implementing safety measures such as secure carriers that allow for movement without risk of escape is essential for their safety and peace of mind of their owners.

How to prepare your Sphynx 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

Ensuring your Sphynx Cat is up-to-date with vaccinations and has a clean bill of health is fundamental before setting off. Owners should compile a record of all medical history, including vaccinations for rabies and other conditions. This documentation is often required for inter-state travel and can be crucial in emergency situations.

Identification and Security

To safeguard your Sphynx Cat during travel, suitable identification is paramount. Microchipping offers a permanent solution, while collars and tags provide immediate, visible identification. These precautions are indispensable for quick reunification in case your cat becomes separated from you.

Travel Comforts for Sphynx Cat

To ensure a stress-minimized journey for your Sphynx Cat, include familiar items in their travel kit. Cozy bedding can provide comfort and warmth, while favorite toys can offer a sense of security and distraction. Also, consider packing grooming wipes for skin care 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 Sphynx Cats

Stress Reduction Strategies

Keeping your Sphynx Cat calm during transit is crucial. Use of familiar-scented items or pheromone sprays can significantly reduce anxiety. Playing soothing music or providing a covered carrier to create a dark, secure space can also help in soothing your pet.

Feeding and Litter Box Solutions

Maintain a consistent feeding schedule with familiar foods to avoid gastrointestinal distress. Portable litter boxes that are spacious and easily accessible within the carrier can manage hygiene needs without causing additional stress.

Climate and Comfort

Given their unique fur characteristics, managing the climate is critical for Sphynx Cats. Use climate-controlled transportation options where possible, and provide layers for warmth. Remember, too warm conditions are just as uncomfortable, so ensure good ventilation is available at all times.

After the Journey: Settling In Your Sphynx Cat

Acclimating to New Spaces

Upon arrival, allow your Sphynx Cat to explore their new surroundings at their own pace. Keeping the environment quiet and setting up a familiar-scented area can help them feel secure. Gradual introduction to new spaces and people will aid in a smooth transition.

Post-Travel Health Check

Monitor your Sphynx Cat closely for any signs of distress or illness following travel. Early identification of issues like dehydration, stress, or travel-related anxiety can prevent more serious complications. Consult a veterinarian if you observe any concerning symptoms.

Maintaining Well-being

Post-travel, strive to return to your cat's regular routine as swiftly as possible, including feeding, play, and grooming schedules. Consistency and familiar routines are key to helping your Sphynx Cat adjust to their new environment and ensuring their overall well-being.
