Re: [US->CH] Good moving company??

related to bringing over pets, i brought a very large airedale (which cost $3,000 cdn - YIKES), but when we tried to retrieve her at the zurich airport (processed through customs) we found out that the dog should have had a microchip (this was not stipulated on any swiss government web site) and the customs vet person was really quite unkind. it took almost 3 hours to get our dog, not sure if the same microchip rules apply to cats but maybe it is something you should look into.

additionally, there were a bunch of additional fees that air canada neglected to inform us about - and it was really kind of freaky thinking that we may not get our dog because of rules that seemed ad hoc. ironically, despite the apparent concern for animal welfare, the swiss still allow circuses with animals (something that has been banned in several north american cities).
