Hey, you know what else I mind. And this is picky I know. I mind that it’s OK to bring huge thick knitting needles through, but a little bottle of complementary, half-used hotel hand lotion needs to be put in a plastic bag to make it safe. And, HOW does a plastic bag make it safe?
Raja tells me I’m foaming at the mouth and might need to get my rabies shot, so I’ll table this tirade and get back to pet travel, which I suppose is why you are reading this.
We have done as much research as we possibly can to find out what full body scanners might mean for pet travelers. At present, full body scanners are reportedly on order for many international airline hubs. They are not widely in use yet and the controversy over and objection to such scanners is substantial. Airlines are not prepared to say much about use for humans, and as yet, there is no printed regulation for pets. I suspect that pets will be treated like babies and toddlers, although what that may mean is yet not clearly stated.
So, while I do not know anything about full body scanners and pets right now, I do know that, if you google “full body scanners” you can read that they will cause you to lose your memory, give birth to tarantulas and grow hair on your tongue. Readers, as soon as Raja and I know anything on this topic, we will tell you all about it, but until then, let’s just all chill. Do not stop traveling and do not leave your adventure loving pet at home. Adventures are for people and pets!
