I will be in Germany for the summer. I will carry my dog, a 52 pounds Labrador. It seems very expensive to carry dog with AC (275$+tx one way). (leaving from YUL or YQB to TXL)
Is Fedex or UPS or other airline carry live animal for cheaper?
|Quoting Aad665 (Reply 8):|
1. With AC, I find interesting that price jump 5X time for 1 more pound
2. AC and LH: they operate joint venture ops but price for live animal can be so different.

Don't forget customs rules. Your dog could be in for a long quarantine.

Any major airline, on the other hand, is experienced with this situation, and will do their best to ensure a comfortable flight for your pet.
|Quoting RoseFlyer (Reply 15):|
You almost always want to have your pet drugged up while travelling since it is traumatic, and the airline won't do this for you.

don't go via the UK - they have strong regulations, since they still consider themselves rabbies-free... quarantine might be necessary even for transferring pets
|Quoting Chase (Reply 16):|
I would think VERY carefully about this. According to http://www.ipata.com/page.php?rp=9#9 about half of pet deaths in flight are due to over tranquilization.
