As you plan your relocation to Bahrain, you will discover your small pet dog or cat may fly as accompanied baggage depending on the passenger airline you choose. Medium and large-sized pets must fly as manifested air cargo, which Air Animal can arrange.

After you move:
Please register with a local veterinarian to keep your pet's rabies vaccination up to date. Veterinarians typically send reminder notices when vaccinations are due. If another move is in your future, you and your pet will be ready.
