!!<nYour Animal in Transit.Information for all animals in transit. n Carriers that we supply are transit approved.* Some of the carriers are IATA napproved (International Air Traffic Association)* Some of the carriers are USDA napproved. (United States Department of Agriculture).First to do before nyou buy a carrier is to find out from your airline, which one they will allow. (Almost all allow both). Quote nthe two approvals as above. (Most airlines do not know what they are talking about). So say “My box is IATA or USDA napproved”  Hopefully they will be baffled by your knowledge and you will nhave nothing further to do other than transport your animal. If they are not baffled, quote these two references for the www.usda.govIf nthey still insist that you have something to prove about your carrier, quote this [email protected] We will put them straight for you.Please. Please.# Do not get annoyed at the idiot that knows no better.# Don’t shout & scream.n# Don’t let them tell you that they have their own “Approved transit boxes” as they want to take even more money from your pocket. Just nfollow the instructions as above and your journey for your animal will be as peaceful as yours.Choosing a carrier: All Gulliver and Ihdra carriers are IATA approved – made by Marchioro and TrixieGulliver for Small sizesIdhra for Larger sizes  :  Ihdra carriers meet USDA guidelines.All Vari Kennels are USDA approved. – made by Petmate (Doscosil)All Vari Kennels meet IATA guidelines.There are NO other Airline/IATA/USDA ncarriers approved  on this site..Making Sure your animal has room :Measure nyour animal from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail.  Add 100mm,10cm or 4 inches to thisThis is the minimum length of the carrier you require.Measure nthe animal from the floor to the top of his head.
