I'm about to move to Colombo and would like to bring my dog with me. I read your post from last year and was hoping you could advise me on the admin side of things as well as practical : how did you help your pets regarding the heat? How did they manage it? I am worried I am being very selfish by wanting to take her with me? Any info or help would be sooo lovely....

We were moving from Dubai so heat change not such a consideration, but animals are put into AC'd room on arrival in any case so we had no concerns.
