Are you planning a trip with your pet?
We're here to help make your next trip with your four-legged family member a success! If you are taking your pet across state borders, a domestic health certificate, signed by a veterinarian, is required. If you plan to travel with your pet internationally, an international health certificate, signed by a veterinarian is required, and other documentation may also be required. Our veterinarians are accredited by the USDA/Animal Plant Health Services (APHIS) and can complete and sign domestic and international health certificates. They are here to answer any of your questions about traveling with your companion.
Domestic health certificates are often required by airlines if your pet is traveling in the cargo area. A domestic health certificate includes vaccination information, and requires the veterinarian to examine your pet to ensure they are healthy and fit to travel. We highly recommend you contact your airline, and speak to a live person, to determine their specific requirements. To schedule an appointment for your pet's domestic health certificate, please call us at 303-499-5505.
For traveling internationally with your pet, the main piece of advice we can give is: Begin planning early! Your pet may require several blood tests and treatments before it is able to travel so we urge you to seriously consider the time and costs associated, along with length of your stay in the foreign country in deciding if traveling with your pet internationally is necessary. Airline travel is stressful for pets, but we realize sometimes it is the only option and are here to help make it the easiest as possible for you and your pet.
To begin planning international travel arrangements for your pet, please call us at 303-499-5505 or e-mail Dr. Alt - firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide you with the requirements for your destination and develop an approximate schedule and estimate of associated costs.
