I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There are some sedatives that can be used for airline travel but the one that will be best and safest will depend on a few different factions. These include her breed, age, weight, the duration of the flight, and her overall health. Your vet can talk to you about your concerns in detail since they know your pet. If she does need something to help with the excitement, your vet can prescribe the medication that will be best. It is also important to know the rules that your airline has for pet travel. They may require a health certificate and a statement from a vet about the pet’s ability to travel by air. Your vet can work with you to make sure that any requirements are met prior to travel.
