[DORKYDog] Traveling with your Pet in the Philippines

Upon reading a link in female network  to a blog where a distraught owner had lost their pet on a local flight (http://www.jillvillpalarca.com/2009/04/our-dog-died-on-cebu-pacific.html ), I thought that it would be best to speak up since it may be not common knowledge that certain breeds are RESTRICTED   from being transported internationally via air cargo during certain seasons for a reason.

These breeds are :

  • Boston Terrier
  • Boxer
  • English or French Bulldog
  • King Charles Spaniel
  • Lhasa Apso
  • Pug
  • Shar-Pei
  • Shih Tzu

These breeds are usually restricted on most international flights during certain seasons due to respiratory issues inate to the breed due to the shape of their face. Although this breed restriction does not typically apply when the dog is travelling with you INSIDE the cabin.

Another detail the owner of the pet travelling should look into is the temperature during the time when they are landing and departing. Most cargo areas are not air conditioned . I suggest a landing outside  temperature of > 72 Farenheit.

conclusion: If you are planning to travel with your pet in the philippines ,you should book your flight for night time travel.

cheers and may the “paws’ be with you
