Can dogs get altitude sickness in La Paz, Bolivia?

by Natalie

Hello! I will be traveling to La Paz, Bolivia this summer and I am wondering what your thoughts are to bringing my dog. My mom and I are scared for our dogs safety. Will the altitude affect him? I went last summer of 2010 and left my dog here in the States. I can't imagine doing that again this year but I wouldn't want to affect his health. Please help me. He will be a year and a half at the time of the trip. Also he was born in Bolivia and a surprise from my father who traveled to Bolivia in April 2010. Thank You! =D

Hello, i just found this question about dogs in La Paz, BO and I'm wondering if you had any chance to brought your dog with you? How did he/she do? Seems like I'm in the same spot, we will be moving to La Paz for a few months, my dogs are coming (of course) but I would love to hear your experience and if there is any advice you can give me? Thanks!
