Dogs in Central America
Also, does anyone know about quarantines in Central American countries? I heard that Panama quarantines the dogs for 3 months!
We brought our 2 dogs here from the cold, high mountains of Western Canada. They did not have much trouble adjusting to the temperatures. Even though they had never experienced anything like that at home. We did end up shaving our collie-sheperd cross but that was due to skin infections, not weather. There are a LOT of bugs that like the taste of dog down here. Make sure you have appropriate meds with you.
We flew our two down here so I cannot speak to the crossings and quarantines of other countries. I can tell you that people do not view pet animals the same as folks do in North America. I know that many towns regularly put out poison to control the strays. Not trying to scare you out of it, I just want to try to give you enough info to make a decision.
Being a life-long dog-lover though I hope you will forgive me if I advise to consider this carefully. There are already too many stray dogs in CA. If you think there is even the remote chance that you will have to part company with your buddy then leave him at home. Guess I answered my own question.
ps- There was no quarantine in CR.
Here's one link with some information.
"Suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either."
