Did you know most domestic interstate travel and all international travel requires a health certificate for your pet? Our veterinarians have obtained USDA accreditation and maintain valid licenses to sign off on travel documents. Whether you are traveling up the coast or across the world, our team can ensure your travel documents are in order for your four legged family member.
Travel requirements vary greatly depending on your destination. Most domestic interstate travel is simple and can be completed in one visit. Some destinations, like Australia for example, require an extensive protocol of vaccinations, lab tests, internal/external parasite treatments, and import permitting which takes 180+ days to complete all necessary steps.
The USDA has a very informative website that will help you identify the timeline needed and necessary steps to take before you make your travel plans. While we are here to help, if is your responsibility to ensure you fully understand and comply with all requirements.
Airlines also have their own requirements for pets traveling onboard or in cargo. We are happy to complete any necessary forms they provide you, though, we cannot obtain these on your behalf. Check in with your airline's customer service team before scheduling your appointment.
While we do not specifically endorse any travel logistics company, our clients have provided positive feedback utilizing these third parties to assist with relocating internationally. They will partner with you along the way to ensure a safe and smooth travel plan for your pet. Contact them directly to discuss the services they provide and to obtain a quote.
