Planning to travel with your bestfriend? Then come in to get a health certificate. Before an airline can accept your dog/cat for transport or travel, a representative must see a recent health certificate supplied by your veterinarian.
A certified veterinarian will need to examine your pet in the consulting room before they can fill out the health certificate. The exam determines whether your pet is in good health and fit to travel or not. Depending on the destination, certain requirements are required to be filled. Please ask your veterinarian.
Check the airline you wish to travel on for the latest rules on how far in advance you can get your health certificate or if they have any additional paperwork required. Most health certificates are only good for 10 days and then expire, plan your examination around your traveling date.
Put your health certificate in a safe place — maybe with your airline ticket — so you don't forget to take it to the airport.
