Health & Travel Certificates

When crossing state or country borders, your pet is legally required to have a travel certificate. For air travel, most responsible airlines will not allow pets to board if they have not received a travel certificate from an accredited veterinarian within ten days of the flight.

Traveling With Your Pet?

A health certificate is an official document issued by a federal, state, or an accredited veterinarian certifying that the traveling animal has been inspected and found to satisfy the regulations pertaining to their intended destination - within the same state, between states, or internationally. These requirements are to help ensure the animal meets the physical health criteria for their own safe travels, but also to ensure that the animal being moved does not carry illnesses or parasites that would be harmful to the people or animals that are in the destination area. This process may vary from simple to complex, depending on the requirements of the destination.
