USDA-APHIS Health Certificates
When pets are part of the family, leaving them behind during family vacations can be a hard pill to swallow. We are happy to provide a health certificate for your pet, no matter the destination so that everyone can travel together.
Please be aware that we cannot provide Rabies Certificates for pets whom we have not vaccinated. In the event that your pet was vaccinated elsewhere and you no longer have your up-to-date Rabies Certificate, you will need to contact the issuing veterinarian to obtain a copy. If you are unable to do so, we are happy to administer a Rabies Vaccine booster and a new Rabies Certificate. However, please be aware that pending your destination, this may potentially delay your travel.
How To Prepare For Your Pet's Health Certificate
Do Your Homework
Every state in the United States and every foreign country has its own unique requirements for pet import. Please review your destination’s requirements prior to scheduling your appointment. Some destinations require 6 – 12 months of advanced planning.
Please fill out and submit either our domestic or international health certificate form below well in advance of your appointment. We will need rabies and microchip information. In the event that one or both were administered elsewhere, please provide us with a copy of those records.
Plan Travel Accordingly
Most international health certificates need to be prepared 7 – 10 days in advance of your departure. They also need to be sent to USDA-APHIS for endorsement and returned. Please allow sufficient time when planning your travel.
