Pet Travel Examination

  • Start preparing  and researching 3-4 months in advance. Every country and/or state has its own  pet travel requirements. 
  • We are not responsible for ensuring that veterinary services, flights, and/or any other transportation arrangements are booked in accordance with requirements for travel.
  • Visit the USDA APHIS pet traveling website for the most up-to-date pet travel information. Please research what is needed for the destination you plan to travel to and the airline you plan to travel on, including the timeline for any test and/or vaccine requirements.
  • Contact your airline and inquire about their pet travel policies and requirements. Every airline has their own set of rules and most require a health certificate to be processed within 10 days of the departure date.
  • Health Certificates can only be issued on the day of an appointment and cannot be issued retroactively. 
  • Schedule an appointment  as far in advance as possible for a health certificate as we only process one per day. 


Some countries have complex requirements for entry which means we do not feel comfortable processing a health certificate without the assistance of a pet travel agency. A pet travel agent will have a better understanding of which permits, testing, treatments, and documents are needed. This ensures that you and your pet will not be refused upon arrival. We currently require that you hire  a pet traveling agency for the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Israel
  • Japan
  • Malta
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Singapore
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland)
