Exporting a pet from GIG? (Rio de Janeiro)


Hello all,
I imported my cat to Rio one year ago (From North America) and now it is time for us to make our return flight. Importing the cat was straight forward as far as preparation and paperwork, however after our long voyage, I found that my cat was not waiting in baggage. He had been taken to cargo/customs away from the airport. To make a long story short, it was a 6 hour nightmare to finally get him in my hands, and this was with all my paperwork in good standing.

I am trying to avoid any drama while taking him back to Canada, so does anyone know the correct procedure for exporting a pet? Which cargo building to drop him off at etc? It will be a United Airlines flight.

Any advice appreciated.
