planeThe following information was obtained from Travel Smart.

Your are going away and do not want to leave you pet behind. If you’re like me, you don’t want to check him in and have him travel in the cargo compartment. You’ve heard horror stories about pets dying from being left on a hot runaway in some god awful tropical place! No – not for our pets! If I ever had to travel with my pet, she would either have to be in her pet carrier in the seat next to me or under the seat in front of me.

Here are some guidelines from Travel Smart which may help you in making that all important decision.
