When traveling with your pet internationally, it is important that your pet travels comfortably and safely, free of illness and infection, as to not spread a disease to other parts of the world. This is why it is necessary to have an International Health Certificate if you plan to travel internationally with your pet.
Many countries, European Union included, have their own health certificates specific to their own country. However, If you are traveling to a country with no health certificate requirement, you will then need the International Health Certificate (USDA-APHIS 7001).
We Can Help
Nippers Pet Medical Center is here to help make the time-consuming process of approving your pet for international travel a little easier. Our veterinarians will examine your pet and approve your international health certificate for travel. We will also discuss the risks of contracting a foreign disease and may recommend the appropriate vaccinations for your pet.
For all of our resident pets traveling from the United States, these health certificates must be approved by the USDA, alongside proof of rabies vaccination, rabies titer and echinococcus tests and treatments.
