Taking an elderly dog abroad for the first time - is it wise
We 've just retired, and after years of tugging bought our first motorhome last autumn, and love it! always stayed in this country because we had four dogs at the one time.
we now have the one, a cocker spaniel who is 14 and half years old. He is stone deaf, has a heart murmur which he has had for years with no ill effects, and a benign bum tumour which is causing no problems. had a check up today, all fine. He still enjoys life, though he is slowing down, and loves to go away in the van. We live in Scotland so used to cool weather. Thinking of going to France in the late summer <Sept/Oct) for the first time. Not sure what the weather would be like. vet said he should be,OK providing it is not too hot, and did not advise either way. Not sure if it would be advisable to take him away, but no-one to leave him with, and kennels a definite no no.
as we're unfamiliar with France, any advice/thoughts appreciated.
