Default Flying dog from UK to Canada through AirTransat

I’m planning on moving my dog from Belfast to Toronto in a couple of months but still unsure of the requirements so a bit of help would be appreciated!

Dublin airport isn’t accepting pets through their baggage compartment at the minute, and Belfast doesn’t do direct flights to Toronto and I’m getting quoted £3k+ for a pet travel company so that’s off the book. I’m thinking of getting a ferry over to Cairnryan and a friend lift from there to Glasgow to fly direct from there to not put too much stress on her having layovers etc. Air Transat seem to be accepting pets in their checked baggage/cargo so this is seeming the best way possible.

I currently have:
IATA approved carrier (weighing both her and crate together at vets tomorrow, should be fine or cutting it tight. ✅
Vaccinations up to date tomorrow. ✅
Microchipped. ✅
Rabies vaccination pending
Fights not booked yet but rang Air Transat and confirmed good to go with her.

I still need her health certificate. It’s different rules for Northern Ireland as you need a different certificate (but I’m unsure on this) from an OV vet, 72 hours before flight. This is what I’m stuck on as will I be needing an export HC for the UK as I’m flying out of there, or an NI one as that’s where we’re coming from?

Any help would be muchly appreciated!
