When transporting livestock (cattle, sheep, goats, horses, pigs and poultry) it is necessary to make sure that any journey is properly planned, with time in transit kept to a minimum. Any animal transported must be: fit for travel, provided with the necessary water, feed and rest, provided with sufficient floor space and height. All forms of transport and the loading and unloading facilities used should be designed, constructed and maintained to avoid injury and suffering. People handling the animals should be suitably trained. The government requires a livestock movement permit obtained from a Veterinary Department in your area. Find the companies that provide these services in Zambia. For transporting pets find a vet that provides this service and can advise on international transport.
Animal transporters in Zambia are used to transport livestock or non-livestock animals over long distances. They could be specially-modified vehicles or trailers. It is important to transport the animals in a humane way for the animals' welfare.
Often your vet can arrange to transport your pets by road or air. The most direct way of shipping your dog or cat to another country is flying. This tends to be the most expensive animal transportation method, with costly airline fees. The main concern isn't affordability — it's safety.
