No matter what kind of pet you have or where you’re moving overseas, the will be paperwork. Probably lots of it. Foreign countries naturally want to be sure your pet is healthy – not bringing pests or disease that could infect local populations of pets or wildlife. So, you need paperwork to confirm your cat is, indeed, a good candidate for immigration. However, things are more complex for flat-faced cats and dogs.
Pet parents and pet lovers are coming to grips with the fact that flat-faces may be cute, but they also pose serious breathing and other health concerns for cats and dogs. Travel can make pets anxious, especially cats, which only makes the problems worse.
Even if you’re a seasoned pet parent, you may not realize how different cat and dog foods are. Like most of us, you’ve probably never thought about it. However, cats and dogs do have different nutritional needs. And their bodies respond differently to certain ingredients. So it’s not just for marketing purposes that manufacturers offer separate lines of dog and cat food products.
