Snub –Nosed Animals
Snub-nosed dogs and cats are not hot-weather animals and have difficulty in regulating a normal body temperature in hot weather; therefore, these animals are very sensitive to heat and suffer of respiratory and breeding problems.
These respiratory problems can be increased under high-stress situations.
As a precaution, Cobalt will not accept them as checked baggage or as air cargo due to their inability to breathe easily and cool themselves down.
Certain snub-nosed breeds may be allowed for Pet in Cabin transportation, if they meet the criteria. Please refer to Cobalt Air call center for more details.
