I apologize for the tardiness of my note but still wanted to write to thank you for your help with our move. As you know, our move was a huge undertaking with 4 children, 23 dogs, 11 cats, 2 rabbits, 1 lizard and a turtle to relocate from VA to CO. So overwhelming was just the idea of this move that it took me over a year to get up the courage to attempt it despite the fact my husband had already relocated for his job. Without you, I don’t think I would have reached that point. You gave us invaluable advice on how to accomplish our part of the undertaking, and you were always calm, cool and collected even when our stress mounted. When our RV broke down delaying our departure, you didn’t skip a beat, but continued on, safely delivering our cats and rabbits to our new home. You got them nicely settled in before returning to VA to load up with some of our dogs. Thoughtfully, we left the more difficult dogs for you to transport, LOL, but we knew that you had this process down to a science and would likely handle them on the road better than us!
Hi Rose - there are several reasons for airline pet incidents. One big problem is bracycephalic (snub-nosed) dogs and cats whose breathing is shallow to begin with and they don't do well at high altitudes. Some owners transport pets who are not in the best of health. Handling problems, heat or cold on the tarmac are other problems. The cargo hold can heat up or cool down quickly, and if the aircraft does not get airborne within a reasonable amount of time, tPets can escape from carriers that get damaged if they are dropped when being loaded or unloaded. (that is why we recommend crate hardware and twist ties on the doors of the crate.) There is a risk to traveling, but traveling in the Spring or Fall and using good equipment is a very smart thing to do. Hope this helps....
