Pet Travel Exams
If you’re traveling internationally or across state lines and plan to take your pet with you, you must be aware of precisely what will be required for your animal companion to make the trip. It’s also good to ensure your pet is physically healthy enough for travel.
The veterinarians at Pacific Pet Hospital can assist you in getting your pet ready for your trip, including assessing whether they’re healthy enough for travel—especially the rigors of an airline flight.
International travel for pets requires international health certificates—and some countries require proof of additional vaccinations and testing. We will be happy to assist you with acquiring the appropriate certificates and other steps after you’ve figured out exactly what you need for your trip.
You can visit the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) page from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). While a USDA-accredited veterinarian must prepare the certificate, the requirements for entry vary depending on the country.
