Should you feed dog before flight?

Remember to feed your pet dog or cat no more than six hours before the flight. Flying on a full stomach is not recommended; feed your pet a little less than usual on the day of the flight. A water bowl will be attached to the crate door and filled before the flight and during transit stopovers.
