USDA APHIS Pet Travel Certification
Whether your pet is traveling within the U.S. or embarking on an international journey, there may be health requirements specified by authorities at their destination.
It’s critical that your pet meets these requirements and travels with appropriate documentation. It may take some time and planning for your pet to qualify for travel, so please come see us as soon as possible! We'll help you get your pet ready to travel.
The first step is to visit the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) website and determine what your destination country requires. You should also check with your airline or cruiseline, as they may have separate and additional requirements.
Factors to consider may include meeting time frames for obtaining a health certificate, updating vaccinations, diagnostic testing, or administering medications or treatments. It’s important to plan ahead!
Next, contact Quarry Ridge Animal Hospital—we’ll work with you to schedule any necessary vaccinations, tests, or treatments. Once everything is in order, one of our USDA-Accredited Veterinarians will issue a health certificate for APHIS endorsement.
Please note: Our Pet Travel Certification service is offered to established clients only.
