  • Christina – that is correct about your dog’s breed being banned in Ontario. They are also banned in Toronto. We do not know of any other province in Canada where they are banned.

    We plan to travel into Canada, from the US, with our dog. We plan to cross the Lynden border into B.C. Does anyone know if american staffordshire terrier is allowed to cross at this border? I have read that they are banned in Ontario.
    Thank you.

  • Katy – most airlines will not transport pets in the cargo hold when the temperature drops below 45 degrees. This for the safety of your pet. Not all airlines flying out of the UK require that your cat travel in cargo. If you are planning to accompany your cat, then try to find one that will fly your cat in the cabin with you.

  • Sumrah – you will need to contact Emirates Cargo to confirm the answer to your question. Emirates should permit your pets to fly as manifest cargo. We are unsure of the requirments of the United Arab Emirates to import them, however. You will need to contact the Ministry of Environment and Water and inquire. Certainly, a health certificate would be required, but we are unsure if there are additional requirements.

  • Jessica – you will need proof of current rabies vaccination more than 30 days prior to entry to the US and a health certficate issued in English within 10 days of travel. You can find links to instructions and forms here:

  • Katy – BA will require that you book through an agent. Will add to the cost.

    Does anyone know how much it will cost to bring a cat on a flight from the UK to the US on British Airways?
