This is a common concern. Your pet will travel in a secure animal carrier and in a heated section of the cargo hold. You can make it more comfortable for them by including their favorite blanket with your scent. Calmeze products can be used for anxious pets (the tablets for dogs and the gel for cats).
No, there is no quarantine period as long as you have complied with all the documentation and health requirements. Your pet will be inspected on arrival and held for 12 hours, after which it will be released to you.
