NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

Description of the Incident: Pixie arrived deceased in San Jose, Costa Rica

Description of the Cause of the Incident: A necropsy is being performed at Continental’s expense and the Veterinarian has noted in the gross necropsy that Pixie had “a smaller than normal trachea and went into respiratory distress resulting in pulmonary edema and swelling to her breathing tubes”. Histopathology reports are pending at this time but the apparent cause of death does not appear to be related to the handling of Continental Airlines, but is more breed related.

Description of any corrective action taken: None. The death of this pet was not related to Continental’s handling or equipment
