It is recommended that your pet have water prior to flight with ample time to exercise and relieve itself before tender. Withholding food is probably best in order to prevent motion sickness. Water dishes provided with most crates are not suitable for international travel due to their size. We recommend you purchase two plastic food storage containers (pictured below). Cut a slit on each end of one side about an inch in from the end of the dish, just below the lip. Insert one zip tie into each slit. Fill with water to just below the zip tie and freeze or take a bag of ice cubes with you to the airport.
IF YOUR DOG CHEWS, FOR THEIR SAFETY, IT IS BEST TO PURCHASE METAL DRINKING BUCKETS THAT ATTACH WITH CLIPS, OR MORE STURDY HARD PLASTIC CONTAINERS
