What is the environment like for a pet traveling in the cargo hold of an aircraft?

On most flights that accept pets, the cargo area itself is climate-controlled similar to the passenger cabin. In addition, pressure in the cargo area is regulated, similar to how the air pressure in the cabin is regulated. Pets traveling in cargo may be stored near other pets traveling, or near other secured cargo. The cargo hold is dimly lit and can be loud, as compared to the cabin of the plane.
