Default Bringing a dog to the Islands

Anyone ever done this? I have read the Phil. consulate and have contacted both Delta and PAL airlines about the requirements:

"A traveler who wishes to bring a pet to the Philippines must download the Application to import pets permit and contact the following:

Bureau of Animal Industry
National Veterinary Quarantine Service
Visayas Ave., Diliman, Quezon City

Tel. No. (632) 925-4343; 928-1778
Fax No. (632) 928-2429
Email: xxxx ( I don't have enough posts yet)

The information that the pet owner must provide are:
◦The species and breed of the pet(s);
◦The gender and description of the pet(s) you are bringing;
◦The expected date of the pet(s)í arrival in the Philippines;

The following documents for each pet are necessary:
◦A valid health certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian in the country of origin, which indicates that the pet has been examined and is free from communicable diseases at least ten (10) days before the travel to the Philippines. If the country of origin is not free from rabies, a certification that there has been no rabies cases within a 20 kilometer radius of the petís home in the last six (6) months.
◦A vaccination card showing the petís vaccination for rabies, canine distemper, infectious hepatitis, leptsopirosis, canine parvovirus, or feline panleucopenia and proof that the animal was treated for internal and external parasites.

The fee will be paid upon arrival in the Philippine airport.
Anything I am over looking?

Thanks Lefties...I understand. I have been told will probably have to go as Cargo but have been reassured (for what that is worth) will be on same flight. Am curious, I plan a 33 hr layover in Los Angeles from Guatemala (partly due to the no travel with pets in summer if temperature is too high) I would hope that short layover would not mean another vet check and paperwork?

Before going any further, go to your veterinarian and buy a Doscosil Pet Crate. This is the only brand of pet crate that is approved for airline travel out of the USA. It can be taken apart and put back together for easy storage and can even be used as your animals house while you are in the Philippines. Make sure the crate is big enough so that your pet has room to move around inside and be able to stretch out when lying down.

I used to do dog shows many years ago and had Dobermann Pinschers. I used the Doscosil create that was large enough to hold a Great Dane.

Brought mine over from Kuwait. No issues. Some airlines are pet friendly and will let you see the pet on layovers depending on how long it is. Make sure you don't feed them a few hours before the trip. Get a water dispenser that will hold water until the dog licks it or whatever. it does. Make sure you have all the vets paperwork and shot records. Once we landed and got the dog my wife went to the BAI area while I took him outside so he could pee and poop. It took about 45 minutes to get the paperwork done. Make sure you microchip your dog if not done already.

If the dog is micro chipped, and was, one day, stolen, the dog could be found by the police who has the microchip search software in their computer system.
