Hello! Im afraid that we are not in a position to support or question your vets' judgement because they have seen the dog, which we haven't, and have information on which to base their opinion. This may include airline guidelines as to what requirements a dog has to meet in order to be judged 'safe to fly'. Our service can be helpful in giving out extra information on certain topics, but a true second opinion is always given by someone with more information available to them than your own vet - this is often expertise in a specific area or advanced imaging, for example - which we have not - and when it comes to flying, your vet has a legal authority that I do not. However, I am sure that your vet would arrange a second opinion for you, or talk through their decision, if you need that.
