The Manchester Airport Pet Import Centre

In the days prior to your animal's departure it is a 
good idea to get your pet used to its traveling container.
 Let it wander in and out and sleep in there if it likes. 
On the day of the flight only feed the animal a small meal 
(if at all) but if it requires a special diet make sure a supply 
is attached securely to the box. A dog will appreciate a 
good walk before being confined but we do not recommend 
sedating your pet unless absolutely necessary due to the 
unpredictable results.
