Dogs at Altitude

Dogs at Altitude

I'm about to cross the Rockies for the first time with my dog in a T206H.  I've been searching online for any guidance with respect to potential issues related to hypoxia and dogs and haven't been able to find anything definitive.  I've seen some hood ("cone of shame")-based solutions and other over-the-snout type masks...

Does anyone have any recommendations with respect to flying with dogs at altitude?  Do they need supplemental oxygen?  What's the best delivery mechanism?

Thanks!

Re: Dogs at Altitude

Hi Bill,
If you haven't found a good answer yet about flying with a dog at altitudes, you might want to contact Pilots N Paws in the US as they do a LOT of transporting of animals - mainly dogs- all over the country.
I have launched the Canadian Pilots N Paws recently so don't have any pilots that have done this type of flight...yet.  smile
I will be interested to hear if there were any special considerations beyond the slow ascent and descent needed for any flight with animals who don't know to yawn to relieve pressure.
