I am with the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association and up until recently, we generally did not accept HW positive dogs. We have changed this policy and decided to do so on a case by case basis, especially since it is so common in the south, and it is quite easy to get false negatives at shelters due to the incubation time.
My question: Since we now have a few HW positive dogs I am seeking help with transport for, I am curious about the general approach people take to this issue. Do pilots generally stay away form HW positive dogs? Are there greater risks I am unaware of? HW are tranferred through mosquito as I understand, is strictly blood born and not infectious like parvo.
I would appreciate any insight!
