Traveling with Pets

 Traveling with your pets can be quite the undertaking and there are many things you should know and consider before hitting the road or  open skies with FiFi, Fido and Mr. Whiskers. We have worked to assemble information here to assist you in your travel planning. Below you will find links to websites containing general information, as well as links to some airlines.  

Please note:

Flying domestically: most airlines require a domestic health certificate. To obtain this, your pet must have a physical exam within 10 days of your flight and have the Health Certificate filled out by a Veterinarian. We have these health certificate in the office and are happy to assist you. You will be required to have a current Rabies vaccination to travel. If we did not do the vaccine here, we will need a Rabies certificate that is signed by the Veterinarian who gave the vaccination. Please call a few weeks in advance of needing the appointment so we may accommodate booking this appointment in the correct time frame.  

International travel: this type of Health Certificate is specific to your destination and regulations and requirements vary from country to country. Please call our office as soon as you know you will be traveling internationally so we have time to research your destination requirements. When you call we will need your name and phone number and your destination country. You will either speak with our technician in charge of health certificates at this time, or we will take a message to give to her. These processes can be lengthy, so please contact us well ahead of your travel.
