Health Certificates: Traveling with Your Pet

Airplane

Do you want to travel with your pet?  

Let us help you get the certification you may need.

If you are traveling out of the country or moving to a new state, you may need to get a health certificate in order to bring your pet with you.

To obtain a health certificate, you will likely need to have an accredited veterinarian (like us!) examine your pet to verify that they are healthy and up to date on their vaccinations.  However, specific requirements will vary based on your destination.

Additionally, some destinations have waiting periods for vaccinations and forms, so it is important to look into your destination’s health certificate requirements ahead of time.  The APHIS website (link below) is a good place to get the process started!

The APHIS website will allow you to input your destination and view any requirements they might have for pet travel! This information is very important and should be researched before scheduling a Health Certificate appointment. In addition to this, please understand the following tips when booking an appointment for a Health Certificate...

>Health Certificates are only valid for a limited time depending on the destination

>Check the APHIS website (link above) for details on your destinations time-frames and requirements.

>Certain vaccines and blood tests may be required before travel.

>Bring all documents on your pet's health from your current or previous veterinary clinic if we do not regularly care for your pet. This includes the Rabies Certificate!

>Appointments for Health Certificates may take up to an hour to complete

>Appointments for Health Certificates may not be available for up to two weeks. We will do our best to accommodate! 

>If traveling via plane or other company, check their requirements for pet travel as well. There may be additional forms that need to be completed.
