Of course, some tourists, who are planning a long vacation, do not want to leave their pets at home. Many travelers prefer to spend their holidays in Pattaya with a dog. However, traveling abroad with an animal is a very complex process that requires serious preparation. In our article we will give useful advices how to travel Pattaya with a dog.
Traveling to Thailand is almost impossible without air flights, so you will need to collect all the necessary documentation for the transportation of the animal. In order to bring a dog to Pattaya you will need the following documents:
- veterinary passport;
- international certificate for the export of an animal from your country;
- certificate of pet registration in the veterinary service of the airport in Thailand. Remember that you will be asked to indicate the address where you plan to stay, so it's better to choose a hotel in advance.
Before leaving Thailand with a dog you’ll have to apply to the airport veterinary service with all documents a few days before departure. The vet will examine the dog and it will be ready for departure.
All animals have to stay in special containers during the flight which can cause a great stress for them. So it is better to prepare a pet for travelling in advance.
First, you should accustom the dog to its container, so it will be better to buy the container for transportation in advance.
Before buying the container, you should carefully learn the requirements of the airline, which services you plan to use, because each company has its own transportation rules. Just before flying, it is better to give light food and little water. You can add some sedatives to the animal's food. It is necessary to lay out a diaper in the container.
Of course, the Thais love animals including dogs, but not all the hotels are pet friendly.
