"We all are affected by cabin pressure and oxygen fluctuations, human, canine and feline, etc., but the fact that the Attendants were responsive and attentive to the situation may have saved Darcy’s life," Michelle wrote on her Facebook page, ABC News reported.

Many airlines ban French bulldogs from flying in cargo holds because of their respiratory issues.
