    Default Help needed Flying to the Philippines

    Hello everyone! Need a little help here please. I'm thinking of going back to the Philippines for an indefinite stay and ofcourse Bifi must go with me. But i'm worried he might not survive the flight. If i can't bring him then i can only stay for 4 weeks ( been one stressful year for me, a change of scenery and being with my family would help heal me). Bifi gets stressed riding the car... so riding a plane, plus the long flight, add new scary noises and mommy is not there ... sigh u get the picture. I'm thinking maybe if i give him something to calm him down or make him sleep for the flight will help? what do you think? would that be safe? ofcourse with the advise of a vet. and can anyone remember one member here who flew their EB from the Philippines to the UK? i want to know how they did it and what airline they used.

    Thank you very much guys! Very much appreciated!

    I've also looked into options but haven't found a solution yet. We might be running into some problems middle of next year and I thought I could move the dogs to Sweden from South Africa... but so far no luck I don't like the idea of taking them in cargo, I've thought about it a lot but I just don't think I can risk it. I have only found one airline from here that actually fly Bulldogs at all. Many don't, and if they do the dog have to be under two years of age. I even got a quote from a private jet company but it was madly expensive ($300 000), WHO has that kind of money Will follow this thread and hope you find a way

    Sorry you are in that situation. I myself would not fly one in cargo, especially that far. Maybe find a good home for him, someone you trust to foster him until you return. That's better than loosing him in flight.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT sedate your dog if you do decide to fly with him. It is very dangerous and most responsible airlines will not fly sedated pets even if they do accept Bulldogs in the first place. Personally I wouldn't do it. I flew Chumly from the UK to Houston and it was so stressful for him, I thought we were going to have to take him to the emergency vet immediately. It was awful. I would never do it again.

    CAn he get a seat next to you? I would call. maybe get him certified as a service dog. I would not fly him in cargo. There is a big petition going around right niw because a family lost their bulldog Molly after a flight where she was in cargo.
