Sorry, Random question following something seen on TV just now.

What if you were susceptible to the above in relation to dogs?

Just saw a UK Border Force sniffer dog (on a Heathrow prog on ITV4) clambering over incoming bags/cases. What if you suffered anaphylaxis after leaving the airport? Is this considered by the Method Statement & Risk Assessment by the Border Forces? Could the limited contact by the dog be a risk?

I remember when sharp objects were banned on board aircraft, there was a period before the aviation industry realised it needed to make provision for EpiPens.

So probably best to assume they are in total denial about anything that is even slightly inconvenient.

Anaphylaxis as a result of an allergy to dogs is incredibly rare. I'd have thought that if you were that allergic, you'd be aware of the issue and would have your EpiPen to hand at all times.

Surely no more risk than sitting next to someone on a bus or train who has a dog or has been in contact with a dog.

I suspect there are many who do not like the fact that dogs are used to check luggage (for whatever reason be it because they have something to hide or think ''they'' should not be checked), but surely its worth it to at least keep some of that muck off the streets.
