Is tranquilization or sedation recommended for pets flying?

Tranquilization or sedation is not recommended, except for in unusual circumstances, as it can increase the risk of heart and respiratory problems. Pre-conditioning the pet to the travel crate is recommended over sedation. Note, some airlines may require a signed statement from the pet owner stating that the pet has not been sedated prior to flying.
