What does enhanced security mean for my pet?
The Transportation Security Administration reports that there are no security procedures that prohibit you from bringing a pet on a flight.
If you are taking your pet in the cabin, you will have to inform security as you proceed through the security checkpoint. If it is possible you may walk your leashed pet through the metal detector with you. If for some reason that is not possible, you and your pet will be required to undergo a secondary screening, including visual and physical inspection by a TSA Officer. You may be asked to remove your pet from its carrier so the carrier can be sent through the X-Ray, but NOT your pet!
