If you plan to travel with your pet to another state or country (by auto or air), your pet may require a certificate of veterinary inspection. As a federally accredited veterinarian, we can provide a health certificate that ensures your pet has met certain health criteria.
Health certificates for domestic interstate travel in the U.S. (usually by air) or international travel have stringent rules veterinarians cannot bend.
When you contact us about providing a health certificate, be sure to provide the following information:
- The type of animal that will be traveling
- The country of destination
- The date of departure from the U.S.
- Whether your pet will be traveling alone, as cargo, or with a person in the cabin of the plane
For detailed information about the steps in obtaining an international health certificate for your pet, visit the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service USDA APHIS.
