|5. YOUR PET'S SIZE
Except for birds, a pet can be longer and taller than the carrier's length and height because our furry friends have a very soft body, and they often curl up inside when the carrier is in motion. Most importantly, you need to consider your pet's size, not his or her weight. By size, we mean your pet's height when standing and his or her length. As a general rule, your pet should be able to stand up and turn around inside the carrier. As our pets' bodies are very flexible, you may not need to have the full length for the pets to fit comfortably inside.

Celltei® pet carriers are well-made sturdy carriers that can carry heavy weights. When choosing your pet's carrier, remember it is your pet's size, not his or her weight, that you need to consider. Please use the size chart below for reference.
