Airport Security and Your Pet
When going through airport security with a pet, you will be required to take your pet out of its carrier and hold it while the carrier is scanned. There appears to be no flexibility on this. So be sure that you have a strong collar, leash, and id tags on your pet. If yours is like ours and will panic in a crowd, you might try taking a pillow case to put it in while you wait for the carrier to come through. It usually only takes a minute for the carrier to be screened, but that is too long for our cat! We haven't tried the pillow case at an airport yet, so the authorities may not permit using it, but it definitely works at the vet for controlling the animal.
