All kennels should follow the guidelines below:
Type and size of kennel
The kennel must be sturdy, properly ventilated and, most importantly, must be large enough
for the animal to freely sit and stand with its head erect, turn around and lie down in a normal
posture. To prevent accidental injury, no part of the animal's body can protrude through any
openings in the kennel. For this reason, kennels made exclusively from wire are not accepted.
United can transport dogs in "giant" crates or kennels (700 series) whose dimensions do not
exceed 48 in. (length) x 32 in. (width) x 35 in. (height) (121 cm x 68 cm x 89 cm) on most

door. In accordance with federal regulations, your pet must be accessible in the event of an
United discourages kennels with wheels on the bottom unless the wheels have a locking
device. If your kennel has wheels, they must be either removed or taped in order to prevent
them from rolling in transit.
Federal regulations require that each kennel is labeled to safeguard your pet. When you drop
off your pet, United will provide the required labels to adhere to the kennel. The labels

PetSafe shipping instructions
United handles all specialty shipments, especially pets, with the greatest care. We understand
the unique requirements of transporting animals, and we adhere to U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations.
To further ensure the safety of animals when they travel on United, we require animal
shippers to follow the guidelines below:
Pets must arrive at the designated airport drop-off area at least two hours prior to the
scheduled flight's departure time.
United requires that your pet have a health certificate issued by a veterinarian dated within
10 days of travel. A certificate is required for both your outbound and return flights. Please
obtain a new health certificate for your return flight if you plan to travel later than the day the
original certificate expires.
Track a pet's itinerary online. Please have the air waybill number available.
Kennels and crates must conform to IATA and USDA regulations.
United supports the recommendation of the American Veterinarian Medical Association to not
accept animals that have been sedated. United will not knowingly accept a dog or cat that has
been sedated and accepts no liability for the death or sickness of an animal caused by any
United agents will use the Live Warm-Blooded Animal Acceptance Checklist (PDF: 92.2 KB) at
the time you tender your pet. Please feel free to print it out and utilize it in the preparation of
your pet for shipping.
If you are shipping small or toy dog breeds that are younger than 12 weeks old and less than
three pounds (approximately 1.5 kg), it is recommended that you take the following
precautionary steps: Do not vaccinate or worm the puppy within three days of transport.
Ensure that no other medical procedures are performed on the puppy within three days of
Use honey or light Karo syrup for "carbohydrate loading" for the 24-hour period prior to
shipping to help maintain glucose levels in the puppy while in transit. Lowered glucose levels
in puppies can result in hypoglycemic episodes, including seizures and a reduction of body
temperature, severely compromising the health of your pet.
