Pet Travel

Ryslip has been exporting dogs and cats for well over 40 years.

We pride ourselves on giving a personal and efficient service which ensures that you will receive the very best attention and help during all stages of your pet’s export. Moving abroad with your pet will be the most exciting time of your life but probably the most stressful too. We will advise you on all the necessary and sometimes very complex documentation and guide you through every step of the way.

Our veterinary surgeon visits the kennels routinely every working day which enables us to offer a complete and comprehensive service. Our vet will carry out any testing and treatment necessary to ensure that you and your animals have a stress-free move. We can also arrange for collection from your address anywhere in Great Britain.

Travel Kennels

Ryslip manufactures its own Air Travel Kennels, made to IATA specification, which can be made to any size you may require.

Our wooden kennels feature water bowls, funnels, and can also have an absorbent Snug Rug added to make your pet’s journey as comfortable as possible.

We are also able to supply the highly durable plastic Vari Kennels, which are available in 6 sizes.

Guidance for Dimensions of Container (As per the IATA Live Animal Regulations)

To assist in determining the approximate size of the travelling container, the following formula may be useful.

The calculated dimensions are internal container dimensions and relate to the standing animal in a natural position.

A = length of animal from tip of nose to base/root of tail.

B = height from ground to elbow joint. A + 1/2 B = length of container.

C = width across shoulders or widest point (whichever is the greater). C x 2 = width of container.

D = height of animal in natural standing position from top of the head or the ear tip to the floor (whichever is higher)/height of the container (top flat or arched).

Minimum internal container dimensions:

A + 1/2 B = Length

C x 2 = Width

D = Height

Snub nosed breeds require 10% larger container.





Measurements A, B, C and D for determining the container dimensions must relate to the largest animal.

The width of the container being calculated as:

  •  Two Animals: C x 3
  •  Three Animals: C x 4

The height and length are determined the same as for a single animal.
