A domestic Health Certificate may be required by the state you are traveling to, or the airline you are traveling on. These certificates allow the airline or destination to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to travel, and that they are not carrying and communicable diseases that can be spread to a new area. Please be sure to look up the requirements specific to your airline as well as your destination.
When traveling to a different country, you will likely be required to provide special USDA or EU documents, as well as specific titer tests to confirm vaccination. These forms (most often) must be attained within 10 days of travel. Our staff will be happy to discuss the travel certificate process. Please contact us for more information.
Just like our own travel arrangements, planning for a pet to travel takes time and preparation. So be sure to plan and do your research ahead of time, and both you and your pet will be able to enjoy your upcoming trip! To look up requirements for your destination, please visit the USDA’s Pet Travel Website, which will provide you with a list of all the paperwork you must provide for your pet to travel.
