Travel With Your Pet?

Health Certificates are usually required to travel from one state to another. Visit the USDA APHIS Website and select the state you want for import requirements. Our veterinarians are specially accredited to provide these helath certificates for your pet. An examination is required within 10 days of travel, and the certificates are valid for 30 days.

Travel to other countries with your pet can be very complex. The international requirements can change without notice, but the USDA APHIS Website is useful to start.

New Dog?

Keep separate in quarantine until examined by a veterinarian and tested for contagious disease.
