Preparation is the key in all types of travel with pets, and bird travel is no exception. Bird travel can be short trips to the vet, a friend's house, or setting out on a day trip. If you are planning more than just a trip across town, the preparation you make will ensure you have all of the pet bird supplies and travel information you need. Wherever you plan to go, it's best to carry along the pet bird supplies you need instead of trying to find them on the road. Traveling with birds requires proper caging with adequate ventilation. Don't buy a special bird travel cage without first making sure it's going to fit appropriately in your vehicle or that it's approved for airline bird travel. Traveling with birds by air requires extensive research and preparation.
