I'm thinking that your dog will need to go through quarantine won't it? Any animal coming into the country has to be quarantined for like 30 days I thought.

I'm sure you'd need your vaccination reports and a certificate of health since I had to do that just to bring a puppy from Texas to Utah.
That's also a really long flight for a dog isn't it? I know the airlines are not required to report pet injury and death statistics but I hear it's high. They left my dog in her crate out on the tarmac for nearly 15 minutes in the triple digit heat right under the running (loud) engine before finally putting her in the hold. I saw this from my seat and they denied it. 

Best of luck!

Proof  of vaccination for rabies 30 days prior to entry in the US,the 30 days prior is the important part our friends from Germany bring their dog on each trip only one time was there a problem and that was because of the 30 day prior clause.  www.petfriendlytravel.com they have the info for all countries

good luck

Wow, we should have gone Delta. We flew out 3 month old GSD pup up from Texas and it had to be a hard case, about double that fare plus the papers and in the hold. Also required that my sister had to fly up along with her, I couldn't just meet the pup her as we did my other dog.

as long as your pet is current  on his vacanations rabies and is HEALTHY any vet in the US can give you the paperwork you need before your flight...Just the price of a office visit, exam,whatever he needs fees to be current, and maybe a small papers fee if any.....as for your flying requirements you would need to ck with each airline to know. I put a pet on Delta for $75 in 01 in a lap of a friend... I would risk a guess that most airlines would take a pet, for a fee, after all they let kids on planes ...have a great trip   no worries................s.............

some info.... if your need is just a health certificate, this can be had for $50 or so and would be good to fly in the US ....the issue is what Costa Rica requires to get back into your country................just ck ed w/ delta, fees are $125 one way trip and must be cleared,reserved and booked beforehand with paperwork needed as per each state requires ...again the health cert....so again back to Costa Rica paperwork is your key issue.........good luck with your trip.......................s................
