DO YOU FLY ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS INCLUDING ENDANGERED SPECIES? WHAT ABOUT REPTILES OR RABBITS OR BIRDS? WHAT ABOUT AQUATIC FISHES?
We only limit our professional expertise to dogs, cats and selected small domesticated animals as most policies concerning the import and export of cats and dogs vary from country to country; and generally in most cases; can be quite extensive and usually stringently regulated by each country for other non-domesticated live animals and especially so for endangered species or animals.
- How do I know what cage size is the comfortable and correct size container for my pet?
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT CAGE SIZE IS THE COMFORTABLE AND CORRECT SIZE CONTAINER FOR MY PET?
Generally, it is not necessary to measure for domesticated cats but more so the more active dogs and due to varying canine sizes. Regardless, the general guideline we recommend would be as follow:
A. Length (cm) = Nose to root of tail - tail excluded
B. Height (cm) = Floor to top of head while standing
C. Width (cm) = At the widest point These measurements will ensure that your pet will have sufficient space to stand up and lie down comfortably.

HOW CAN MY PET TRAVEL CHARGES BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE?
For some destinations this would be a viable solution to request for you pet to travel via "excess baggage". However please note that you must only refer to the airline (and not any other agent) as only the carrier can confirm whether they can accept pet travelling as "excess baggage", that is to allow your pet to sit next to you in the passenger cabin. However, please take caution that there are import restrictions on many countries, so it will not be advisable at all to simply just turn up with your dog or cat under your arm, and expect any airline to accommodate you and your pet(s); so please do refer to your professional pet handling agent for the best advise where ever you are.
Receiving Payments: Pre-payment is required in full 5 working days prior to pet(s) departure. We accept payment by cash, local personal cheques or electronic bank to bank transfer. We do require payment clearance before proceeding with any transportation arrangements
- I want to travel in the cargo hold with my pet!
CAN I BE IN THE CARGO HOLDING AREA WITH MY DOG AS I WISH TO BE NEAR MY PET
Unfortunately, it will not be possible for our customers to fly in the cargo holding area with your pet as this is a restricted area. There are many countries for which import permits, and regulations must be strictly complied with. We at, Kev Posh Pet Services, will be able to assist you and offer the best advice and economical solution with regards to yours and your pet(s) needs.
- I want my pet tranquilized.
MY PET IS PARTICULARLY UPSET WHEN IN A CAGE, SO I BELIEVE THE BEST COMFORT FOR HIM IS TO TRANQUILLIZE HIM BEFORE HE BOARDS THE FLIGHT
KEV POSH PET SERVICES do not tranquillize any animals, and will not accept any pet(s) that are tranquillized. Many highly experienced veterinarians who have worked closely with various airlines, have discovered that tranquillized animals can suffer respiratory and blood pressure difficulties, which can lead to death.
All pets coming into our service will have at least a few hours in the transit kennels prior to flight. Your pets are kept in larger accommodation than their flight kennels, they are fed, watered, kept in a very peaceful and comfortable environment, and ALL dogs are walked by our dedicated staff prior to any lodge in. On the flight day, the pet is put into its flight kennel with lots of iced water, and any necessary paper bedding for its comfort and best health-being, collars and leashes are removed and taped to the top of the kennel, and we get the pet to the airport only at the time required by the airline.

I WANT MY PET TO FLY WITH ME IN THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT
Please remember that most countries require import permits, and some countries do not allow entry of certain pets at all. Some airlines do allow small pets in the cabin. Kev Posh Pet Services will find out all their customers’ needs, liaise with the airline of their choice, direct and guide customers accordingly.
- I want my week old puppy to fly to my Aunt
I HAVE GOT A REALLY CUTE 3 WEEK OLD PUPPY THAT I WANT TO FLY TO MY SISTER
KEV POSH PET SERVICES strongly suggest that pet owners do not risk flying your pet until they are old and strong enough, and that your pets would have had taken all their necessary health injections and blood tests (these shots are generally not administered until they are about 6 months and/or older). As such, KEV POSH PET SERVICES will not advise sending any domesticated kittens and puppies under 6 months old of age as there are just too many uncertainties and too much stress for these too-young kittens and puppies under 6 months of age to fly. Do note that for overseas flights, pets must generally be one year, or older - there is however no maximum on the age for our service, as long as your veterinarian certifies it healthy to travel.
- Your pet might not fly if...
YOUR PET MIGHT NOT TRAVEL IF ...
These are some of the reasons why your pet may not be allowed to fly:
An "embargo" by any airline at any airport can stop and interrupt the flight of your pet. Unforeseen circumstances like for example – State security reasons, extreme weather conditions like overly hot or cold conditions can mean that the airline concerned will refuse to fly (your pet) until a more temperate or safe climate ensues. Heavy traffic conditions will also cause an embargo, example during peak season, like Christmas rush traffic. Incomplete documentation to the importing countries' specifications will certainly stop the flight of your pet, and such incidents regularly cause far greater costs in boarding and quarantining your pet while these are done to specification. Pet owners generally run into the risk of prohibitively high costs at the destinations if you choose to handle the documentation personally yourself. However, KEV POSH PET SERVICES can come in to assist owner, so kindly give our friendly team a call for solutions to your problems.
- Where does my pet stay before the flight?
WHERE DOES MY PET STAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT?
It will be most ideal that your pet stays with you prior to its departure, however, if you have to relocate earlier than your pet, we do suggest that you leave your pet with a reliable friend or family or have them professionally cared for by reputable boarding kennels. This is for your pet's stress relief. We will organize with you or your pet(s) care taker to collect your pet a few hours prior to its departure. Please note that for airline security reasons (and also depending on location and airline); we may need to deliver your pet there under 24 or less hours prior to flight, depending on the airline regulations.
