Hard-Shell Pet Carriers
If you are looking for extra durability, hard-shell pet carriers are a good choice because of their ruggedness. Many times, it's just a matter of personal preference, but some people like hard-shell pet carriers because they are easier to clean than soft-sided pet carriers, and they offer a little added protection because of their stronger shell. If you're traveling with your pet on an airplane and your pet is too large to fit in a soft-sided carrier or a hard-shell pet carrier under the seat, such as the Petmate Cabin Kennel Pet Carrier, an airline-approved, hard-shell pet carrier is the answer to offer comfort and safety in the cargo area. They're also a good choice for quick jaunts across town or traveling with your pet in the car on longer road trips.

Q. My 11 yr old schnauzer & I moved from Kansas to Colorado. We live in the mountains, 8900 ft. altitude, & in the last three weeks he has started sneezing & nose running which he has never done. Can I give him an adult allergy pill to help dry this up or what would you recommend? He weighs about 18-20 lbs. What is your suggestion? Thank you.

Q. Hi PetRelocation,
I need to fly my dog to Maine but I can't afford to spend $600 or more on the "IATA #82" reinforced crate plus the flight cost. Is there a place I can rent the crate for this one way flight?
I bought a plastic flight crate and have been told by United airlines that I need a reinforced pet crate for the flight. I do not have the funds to buy the crate and the flight ticket. I need some suggestions.
He is not an aggressive dog.
