Yeah I guess the question on the E311 form is somewhat unclear

Meat/meat products; dairy products; fruits;
vegetables; seeds; nuts; plants and animals or their
parts/products; cut flowers; soil; wood/wood
products; birds; insects.

I guess pets fall in the category ANIMALS

I think brachiocephalic dogs are also questionable. Anybody wanting to bring ones should research more on that for sure. They're more likely to die during transport than any other i think i read once.

We were told by the airlines that we MUST go through a middle man company..the best quote we've had is from JetSetPets, though there still is alot of paperwork and vet checks that we need to sort out ourselves..PetAirUK were highly recommended but the person we spoke to was useless and their quote was ridiculously high. Be sure to do your own researching before phoning these companies.
Yes thats what they told us , you have to use an agent but if you see original replies if you book them on the flight by phoning the office in Canada you can. I have read it somewhere else on here too. So I will try.
