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.

Pet Travel Examination.

Hey there! Planning to travel with your furry buddy? For certain countries, navigating their entry requirements can be a bit tricky. That's why we recommend reaching out to your favorite traveling agency to help you out. They've got the inside scoop on all the necessary permits, tests, treatments, and documents needed for a smooth entry. Give them a shout if you need a hand! If you don't have one, we will help you to find all the requirements.

  • Plan ahead: Before hitting the road or taking to the skies, make sure you have all necessary documents for your pet, including health certificates and vaccination records.
  • Safety first: Invest in a secure and comfortable pet carrier or harness to keep your pet safe during travel. Proper restraint is essential whether you're driving or flying.
  • Pack essentials: Don't forget to bring along your pet's favorite toys, food, water, and any necessary medications. Familiar items can help ease anxiety and keep your pet comfortable.
  • Take breaks: Long journeys can be tiring for both you and your pet. Remember to take regular breaks for potty breaks, stretching, and hydration.
  • Research pet-friendly accommodations: If you're staying overnight, be sure to book pet-friendly accommodations in advance. Many hotels and rental properties welcome furry guests with open arms.
  • Stay updated on regulations: Different destinations may have varying pet regulations and requirements. A pet travel agency will have a better understanding of which permits, testing, treatments, and documents are needed for entry. If you are in need of a pet travel agency, please contact Pawsitive Pet Health Certificates for more information. Stay informed and up-to-date on any travel restrictions or quarantine protocols.
  • Visit the vet: Schedule a pre-travel checkup with your veterinarian to ensure your pet is healthy and up-to-date on vaccinations. Your vet can also provide valuable advice tailored to your pet's specific needs.

At Blue Cross Pet Hospital, we're dedicated to keeping your furry companions happy and healthy, wherever life takes you. Safe travels!
