Hello. I can see this is quite an old post. But I would like to know how things went with your bringing your dogs to the U.S. from the Philippines. I wish you would help me. I am bringing my mini-dachshund to the U.S. from the Philippines. She weighs less than 5kgs. I would be happy if I could carry her to the cabin with me. She has updated vaccinations and anti-rabies shots. Any advice? Thanks very much.
We flew thru Delta, and I cant say how much I appreciate the Delta crew members in making our flight, especially for my 2 dogs, really really comfortable. I bought their 'recommended' in-flight kennel, which is a soft, collapsible kennel like this - hunch.com/item/hn_1881853/delta-airlines-approved-sherpa-soft-kennel/ they perfectly fit under the seats in front of me!
The dogs were allowed in-cabin, as long as they can fit in the kennel, and can move pretty easily. The kennel is considered as one (1) carry on baggage. You need to get a export permit from Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI), their office is located in Visayas Ave, Q.C. you dont need to bring your dog there, just bring the 'health certificate' from your dog's vet. Note that the 'health certificate' expires after 10 days.
Depending on your port of entry, you might need to check with the state veterinarian if you need an import permit for your dog. But per CDC - you just only need to present the BAI permit (that will show that your dog has updated rabies vaccination).
Just make sure you creating the best conditions for their transportation. Traveling creates tons of stress for the pets and they travels apart from you, you can double the amount. So, it's a good practice to put them in a thedogtor.net/emotional-support-animal-letter that helps to reduce the psychological pressure and bring them back in shape.
Traveling with pets is a challenge for me! Sometimes it makes them nauseous. And even without traveling I had such a problem with my cat. Thanks this article on PetsTiger now I know the best cat food to prevent vomiting. Guys, take this fact into consideration if you want to have a fairly laid-back trip!
