Overseas Pet Travel Services – Cat & Dog Travel Services

When it comes to overseas pet travel and cat and dog travel services, we pride ourselves on being the leading experts throughout the UK. Here at Ryslip we provide a personal and professionally efficient service and ensure that as a client you receive the very best attention and help during each stage of your pet’s export. Whether it’s for love, a new job, or a sense of adventure, travelling abroad with your pet can be one of the most exciting times of your life. However, with this excitement comes some stress and a little bit of hassle. That’s where our team come in. Our job is to advise you on all the necessary and often very complex documentation involved in overseas pet travel, and to personally guide you through every step of the travel process.

Pre-Departure Services

One common misconception about overseas pet travel services is that businesses such as ours simply turn up on the day to assist you with the travel. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Our process of helping you with your cat or dog travel services begins long before you jet off! Firstly, we will provide you with essential documents and information such as shipping instruction forms, destination country regulations on pet travel, ‘fit to fly’ health certificates etc. We handle all relevant health certificates so that you don’t have to.

The day before the flight you will bring your pet to us for a health examination and to make sure the pre-arranged travelling box is suitable. We are also happy to arrange for collection of your pet from your address anywhere in the UK. At Ryslip, we believe the most important aspect of overseas pet travel is that your pet is safe and happy to make the journey. That’s why our veterinary surgeon visits the kennels every working day to allow us to offer a comprehensive and professional pet travel service. Our vet will carry out any necessary testing and treatment to ensure your pet’s move is stress-free. Once the travelling box has been approved, you will be sent copies of any relevant health and travel documents.

The Day of Travel

We understand that exporting your beloved pets can be a nerve-wracking decision and that’s why we go the extra mile to ensure maximum safety and comfort for your pet’s journey. Your pet will board overnight with us in our fit-for-purpose kennels or cattery. We will then transport your pet to the airport ready to fly. Our expert animal team will handle your cat or dog at the airport, and ensure they are boarding the plane happy and healthy. All that’s left for you to do is travel as you normally would, collect your pet from your destination airport, and pay any relevant handling charges of customs fees.
