Health Certificates

There are two types of health certificates available, one which approves your pet for travel within the continental United States, and another which approves them for international travel.

Acquiring a health certificate will require you to schedule an appointment with your veterinarian. Your pet will receive an overall exam during which the doctor will be able to certify that your pet is healthy and safe for travel. The doctor will also verify that the rabies vaccination is current, as this is mandatory.

All of our doctors on staff have the capability to do certificates for travel within the continental United States. We also have six doctors on staff with the USDA certification to do International Health Certificates. These are in-depth certificates that require research, and are tailored to your specific destination. Due to the specific requirements of each country, we ask that you call in advance so our doctors may be provided with adequate time to research your destination's requirements for travel.
