When preparing for flight we actually think it is best if your pet travel on an empty stomach. The main reason for this is to avoid any problems which could come from gastrointestinal distress caused by motion sickness. We will give your pet a drink of water at the airport before departure.
We try not to overfill water containers because water sometimes spills during transit which may make bedding moist. If it is a morning flights, it is advisable to feed pet in the evening prior to the flight but, not to feed the morning before the flight.
For an evening flight, we recommend you feed no less than 4-5 hours before to the flight. Moreover, always ensure to have fresh water available and ready for your pet. Your pet is likely to be thirsty after the flight just as you may be, so please provide a drink as soon as you can safely take the pet out of the crate.
