Need to Take a Pet to the Caribbean? Try Air Propel.

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

These are high cost charter flights, not scheduled airliners. But you can take your dog with you in the cabin.

Would you like to travel with pets right next to you? PetPropel makes flying with cat or flying with dogs a simple task.

AirPropel believes your pet is special. That is why your private flight can include flying with pets in cabin with you. You can travel with dogs while reassuring them all the way. Oh and by the way, ask us to recommend pet friendly restaurants?
We understand the loving bond between pets and their owners. That is why PETPROPEL will do everything possible to offer an enjoyable flight for all souls onboard.

It is important to consider medical/health certificates, temperature, entry into foreign countries, and breed/pet temperament.
Before traveling with your pet, schedule an appointment with a veterinarian. Let them know of your travel plans and ask for a health certificate that should be granted within ten days of departure.

Because of extreme weather conditions, the time of year you plan to travel can be important. Your pet will travel with you inside the temperature-controlled cabin of your chartered aircraft, yet temperatures at your destination may be temporarily shocking for humans and pets. Consider extreme differences from frigid snow country to balmy, humid southern islands. Your pet will be exposed to different insects in different climates and your veterinarian should be consulted.

Foreign countries have varying requirements for pet entry. Check first and request necessary document forms. Airpropel’s staff can help with obtaining these forms and all information you may need for entry.

The breed of your pet along with your pet’s temperament is also a consideration. Pug nose pets may have breathing concerns. Temperature and pressure control in the cabin, especially at high altitudes, will make flying with these types of pets safer. Knowing your pet’s temperament may help decide if your pet should be in a secured kennel, an opened kennel, or on a leash in the airplane. Airpropel will make sure your pet feels safe, secure and comfortable.

If the pet is traveling alone, an Airpropel representative will be happy to meet your pet at the airport and see him/her on their way. When required, a representative can accompany your pet to its destination and receiving caretaker.

LICKS for Dogs Introduces ZEN, a Holistic Remedy for Stressed Pets

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

Stressors are exhausting – they wreck havoc on our overall health and can complicate our relationships. Our pets aren’t exempt from experiencing the symptoms of anxiety or their consequences either, an astonishing 22.9 million dogs suffer from anxiety or fear*.

For most dogs, anything outside their day-to-day routine can be unsettling. Pets may experience elevated levels of stress during thunderstorms, fireworks and group gatherings, times of separation or when visiting the vet. And our companions can experience anxiety in less obvious times too – 12% of dogs suffer uneasiness when meeeting new people or pets and 5% of dogs become upset when traveling.

In times of need, ZEN by LICKS for Dogs is a gentle, holistic remedy for dogs experiencing this anxiety or just feeling out of sorts. Conveniently packaged in single serving portion-controlled packets, ZEN liquid vitamins are brimming with antioxidants and premium ingredients like chamomile root, tryptophan, theanine and ashwagandha root. Simply add LICKS to Fido’s daily water bowl, feed straight from the packet, or serve as a delicious, nutritional gravy to top off his food. And because LICKS for Dogs health supplements are in liquid form, they’re more readily absorbed than tablets or chews and take effect just 30 to 60 minutes after serving.

LICKS ZEN, and their other two formulas, JOINT+HEART and ATHLETE, are proudly produced in the USA and are available in 5 and 15 packs. To find out more information or to find a retailer near you, visit or find them on Facebook.
