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).
