Just say no to pet drugs: go tranquilizer free on their next flight

Never give your pet any drugs, especially tranquilizers, without your veterinarian’s approval; most do not recommend tranquilizers because they can have adverse side effects at high altitudes. All options (including holistic remedies) should be discussed with your vet, and new drugs or treatments should be administered to your pet in small doses before travel to ensure that he or she does not have adverse reactions.
