calming medication on plane, yes, no?

in case we fly with the dogs, and it seems very possible right now since david talked to the chain of command today about me and him seperating and me flying back with the dogs, would you give your dogs calming medication for the flight?

we will take a straight 12 hour flight from los angeles to berlin with airberlin

i have some calming pills from germany but i never used it on my dogs, they were originally for tiggers motion sickness that seems to be over.

no. Many in flight deaths have occured as a result of using tranq's. Anything more than rescue remedy I just wouldn't risk. In fact check with your airline because many do NOT fly animals that have visibly been sedated for that reason.

okay, i kind of thought so.

i hope the fact that snoop and aoki fly together and will probably be able to see or smell each other will help them.

I agree with trying the rescue remedy and not using tranqs. The other thing you can do with whatever time you have is practice with the puppers in their crates. Lots of treats in there and so on. Also check the regs and see if you can put ice in their travel cups.

you'll have to check too if you are flying in the summer because most of them will not fly dogs if the air temp is over 85 degrees...

right...another thing to consider. It's ANY part of the flight too...not just takeoff place and landing place.

Continental will tho...just for future reference. Least domestically...they have some refrig. trucks and such for the kennels to wait in. Vs out on the tarmac or cargo areas where a lot of the overheating occurs.
